DODO COOKIE CHIEF…
I have loved cookies for as long as I can remember. The memory of coming home after school to a house filled with the aroma of freshly baked cookies will forever remind me of my childhood. I learned to bake with my mom and my passion for baking has followed me throughout my life while still remaining one of my joys today.
While traveling extensively in the south of France I fell in love with the beauty and lifestyle of the region, dreaming one day to live in Provence and to open an American style bakery. Seven years later, after taking a life-changing leap of faith, I now call France home. After having worked many years in the corporate business world, I left the U.S. broken. I was disheartened about my career and unsure of the next steps in my life. After arriving in Provence, in searching for the French “joie de vivre”, I continued to bake cookies for my family and friends and soon become known as the "American cookie lady" in my small Provençal neighborhood. I eventually found happiness again through the healing of the French countryside and through baking cookies. It was during these transitional years in Provence, as my eating habits continued to evolve, that I knew it was time for my cookies to reflect my new life choices and values. With the desire of wanting to do more, the adventure to make the best tasting vegan cookies began... and Dodo Cookie Co. was born.
ABOUT DODO COOKIE CO….
I guess you could say that cookies are a true love. My goal in starting Dodo Cookie Co. was simple…. to share my American childhood cookies with the world, to raise awareness about plant based food options while trying to have a positive impact on our planet and to try to spare the lives of as many animals as possible.
At Dodo Cookie Co. we are committed to making the best tasting cookies that you would never expect to be vegan. We use responsibly sourced ingredients, natural artisanal chocolate made onsite by a French Chocolatier and environmentally friendly packaging. Our artisanal cookie dough is hand made in small batches using premium ingredients that are vegan, organic, non-GMO with no preservatives, colorants or refined sugars.
As we all are stakeholders in social and environmental issues, wanting to help sustain our beautiful planet is at the core of Dodo Cookie Co.’s philosophy. We use only plant-based, non-GMO ingredients that are organic and thus pesticide free. Our ingredients are Fair Trade as much as possible, as we believe in creating equitable trade practices for all farmers and communities. Our packaging is recyclable and made of wood pulp that is grown in certified sustainable forests. Dodo Cookie Co. is committed to continuously finding new ways to reduce the environmental impact of our business.
At the heart of Dodo Cookie Co. lies the dream to not only share my passion of baking, but to also give back to our world and community. In this effort, part of the proceeds of our cookie dough will be donated to various non-profit organizations working to improve our planet’s sustainability and/or to better the lives of animals. The list of organizations chosen for 2019 will be announced shortly.
Do your products contain any animal by-products?
No, all of our cookie dough is vegan and therefore does not contain any animal based ingredients. In addition our ingredients are also organic, soy free, non-GMO and Fair Trade.
Does your cookie dough contain allergens?
All of our products currently contain gluten (wheat flour) and contain coconut (tree nut). The flavor “Nuts About You” contains peanuts. Our dough is produced in a facility that also processes nuts, butter and eggs.
Do you use additives?
No, we do not use anything artificial in our products. No preservatives, no gums, no dyes and no artificial flavors.
How long does your dough last?
Our dough will last a minimum of 8 weeks in the refrigerator and up to 6 months in the freezer (thaw in the refrigerator the day before using) however is best enjoyed within 2 weeks of opening. Be sure to always check the “best/use by” date located on the bottom of the package. You should follow the storing instructions below to maintain maximum dough freshness.
How should I store my cookie dough?
As our cookie dough is raw it must be kept in the refrigerator. Once opened we recommend making sure that the container is sealed with the clear film and securely closed with its lid to ensure that the dough will stay fresh and moist.
Can I eat your dough raw?
Although none of our cookie dough is made using dairy products or eggs, they do contain uncooked flour and leavening agents so we recommend not eating the dough raw before baking into cookies.
How should I bake the cookies?
The baking instructions are included on the inside of the container lid, but in case you missed them, the instructions are as follow:
Remove the pot of cookie dough from the refrigerator.
Preheat the oven to 165°.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Form the cookie dough into small balls, ideally between 25-30 grams. For the flavors "Nuts About You" / "Gimme Oats" slightly flatten the balls of dough into a puck shape. Place each cookie dough evenly spaced on the cookie sheet.
Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes, depending on your oven, until they are slightly browned, crispy around the edges and still slightly soft in the center.
Remove the cookies from the oven and let them rest on the baking sheet until they are firm enough to move to a rack to cool completely.
How many cookies does one container make?
It all depends on the size of your cookies but one container will make 16 - 25gm cookies which we feel make the perfect size individual cookie.
Can I recycle your containers?
Yes, please always recycle all of our dough containers! All of our cookie dough pots are not only recyclable but are also made from recycled paper with FSC certification.
Where can I buy your products?
Currently all of our product can be found in select retail stores. Please see the stockist page for current locations.
