Wow Baking Company = WOW

I received a very generous 12oz. "bakery tub" of Lemon Burst Cookies from WOW Baking Company, a wheat and gluten free bakery that uses all natural ingredients.  And, they never use hydrogenated oils, refined sugars, artificial flavors, and of course NO WHEAT or GLUTEN.

Their cookies are made in small batches to to insure that their cookies are always fresh, moist and delicious.  With ingredients like REAL butter, REAL vanilla, and organic cane juice who could ask for better ingredients for cookies?  Mmmmm...my mouth is watering just thinking about them (it is almost lunchtime).  ; )

Sorry, my flash made it hard to read the label.

My brother's wonderful girlfriend, Ashley (she is awesome and adorable you should go check out her blog) and my mother-in-law, Kathy both have wheat/gluten allergies.  It is hard to find deserts (or anything for that matter) that they can enjoy without worrying whether or not it contains gluten. It amazes me SO many products that include gluten you wouldn't expect.  Ashley has become a very resourceful cook making lots of great gluten free dishes.  But, I wanted to try and find something for her that she didn't have to slave over herself.  WOW Baking Company was perfect!

I took them over and Ashley and I tried them together.  (It was hard to not rip 'em open as soon as I received them.  I love anything lemon flavored.)

They were delicious!

My uncle Randall wanted his hand in the picture.

The Lemon Burst cookies were moist and yummy.  I would never guessed they were gluten free.  I don't have a problem with pretty much any cookie but, I love that these are organic and made from such healthy ingredients.  I really liked the perfect lemon taste.  I definitely want to try the brownies and, I am going to be ordering one of their cake mixes for my mother-in-law for her birthday.  I know she would love these cookies as well. 

Here is Ashley's take on the WOW Lemon Burst Cookies: "For gluten-free cookies, these were very good. They were really soft, unlike a lot of other brands that I have tried, and they had a good strong lemon flavor. I also loved that they were made with just a few organic ingredients.  

My only complaint would be that two out of the three types of flour used were rice flour, which tends to cause heart burn. I would have liked to see a better mix of gluten-free flour. Otherwise, they were great! And reasonably priced as well. I will definitely be ordering some of the chocolate chip cookies to try."

Ashley took the rest of the cookies home.   I felt bad keeping them since I can eat gluten and she doesn't often get yummy cookies.  You better love me.  ; )
