BETTER BUYING
Ready-to-Bake Cookies

You can find ready-to-bake cookie dough in either the frozen food or refrigerated case of your supermarket, although you’ll find more product choices in the refrigerated section. A benefit to buying premade cookie dough, in addition to convenience, is that you can make smaller cookies than the serving size to reduce the calories in each. Here are some shopping tips:

  • Opt for products with lower amounts of fat and calories.
  • Choose cookie dough with fewer grams of sugar.
  • Check serving sizes and keep size in mind when making your cookies.

Going by the Numbers
The following chart displays calories, fat, percent calories from fat, and sugar content for a variety of ready-to-bake cookie dough products. One serving equals one cookie.
