The Best Homemade Vanilla Buttercream Recipe

Several years ago I started buying Immaculate Baking’s refrigerated cookies at the grocery store. It was such an easy way to bake hot, fresh cookies. Plus, I like that they use unbleached flour and other natural ingredients.

They have partnered with the Non-GMO Project and are pursuing verification on every product they make.

I was so surprised a few weeks ago when I walked into Target and saw a box of Immaculate Baking Gluten-Free cookie mix sitting on a shelf. I whipped out my phone and took a picture and posted it to Instagram. (Don’t judge – I know there are others who get excited at the grocery store.) I didn’t buy the box at the time, but since then I have tried it, along with Immaculate Baking’s Chocolate Cake Scratch Baking Mix. If I am only allowed one word to describe them it would have to be #thesemixesareincrediblydelicious. (Does that count as one word?)

My children requested that we have S’Mores for dessert. Rather than making the traditional treat, I decided to make Mini S’Mores Pies.
