We can almost NEVER buy baked goods off-the-shelf. They always seem to conflict with my son’s food allergies and, thus, he’s relegated enjoying the creations that result from my sometimes limited baking and decorating skills.
However, while grabbing some items at our local Balducci’s, we read through the ingredients label of fabulously decorated dreidel, star and present butter cookies. Amazingly, they are produced in a peanut and tree nut-free facility! And, if you have a dairy allergy but can eat baked dairy (as our allergist advised we could), the frosting did not contain dairy (the cookie, however, did).
Here’s a link to their Chanukah cookies which you can order online. But they also sell cookies for other occasions. *One warning*, their cookies are likely for special occasions only (baby arrival, holidays, etc) as they are not priced to buy in bulk. But, it was a special treat for us to even find one like it that my son could eat – and he loved every bite!
