FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I get my dough?
Once you order, we'll be in contact with you about when and how you can get your dough. Delivery and pick-up are both options at this time.
When will I get my dough?
Diana's Dough is made in a commercial commissary kitchen so it depends on when we can get in the kitchen. Batches will be made approximately once per week depending on our schedule. Our goal is to get you the freshest dough possible within 1-2 weeks of when you placed your order. If for some reason (it's gotta be a serious, life-altering reason, not just your nightly cookie dough craving), you need dough ASAP, send us an email and we'll see what we can do!
What's the best way to eat Diana's Dough?
The options are endless and there is no wrong way! Some people love eating it straight out of the container, others put it on ice cream. Some use it as filling for cookie sandwiches, or some use it as a dip. So many possibilities! Send us a picture how you eat your dough so we can add it to the list of endless possibilities!
Where should I store Diana's Dough?
The fridge or freezer! We're still testing out how long it lasts but I'd recommend eating it within 3 weeks. I'm not sure how it would last that long in someone's fridge without getting eaten...but maybe you're out of town?
Where is Diana's Dough made?
Diana's Dough is made in a commercial kitchen that is rented to small businesses like ours on an hourly basis. In order to operate in a commercial kitchen and obtain the proper license to sell Diana's Dough, I had to be trained as a Minnesota Certified Food Protection Manager and be inspected by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. I'm legit!
Who can order Diana's Dough?
We'd love to say anyone, and we're working on shipping options! However, for now, we can only offer pick-up and delivery options to folks in the Twin Cities. There are options for people in the Sioux City, IA area too so if you're an Iowawegian in that area, send me a message and we might be able to work something out.
Is Diana’s Dough safe to eat without baking?
Yes! You've likely heard that you’ll get sick if you eat raw cookie dough. The reason for this is the raw eggs and raw flour in traditional cookie dough. Both raw eggs and raw flour contain harmful bacteria that could make you sick (I don't know if that actually happens or if mom's just say that to get you not to eat it). Good news though! Whether it was an empty threat or for real, Diana’s Dough will not make you sick! The flour used in it has been heat-treated to eliminate any bacteria and there are no eggs in the recipes.
Can I bake Diana's Dough into cookies?
Nope. Plus, why would you want to?! For real though, because there are no eggs or rising agent (baking soda or baking powder) in the dough, baking it would probably be disastrous.
What is in Diana's Dough?
The ingredients are listed by each product on the order page but the base of each dough is composed of heat-treated flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, salt, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
How do you decide on flavors?
We wanted to start out with the 4 best flavors! We're working on additional flavors so stay tuned! It actually takes a lot of time to perfect a recipe. Each of the recipes for the four flavors that are available right now are based on my mom's cookies recipes but have gone through many variations and taste tests to make them just right as edible cookie dough. More deliciousness will be coming soon! If you have ideas for flavors, shoot me an email.
How do you decide what organization/charity to feature and donate to each month?
The organizations and charities chosen are ones that are making a big impact on the world, in one way or another. As a social worker and advocate for the elderly and those with disabilities, Diana relied on different community organizations and charities to assist her clients. They can't operate without donations so we want to help them as much as we can. If you have an idea for a community organization that deserves some extra love from Diana's Dough, send me an email!
