I have never and will never buy these, but some in my family do, so today i went to the store and read all the ingredients on Pillsbury and Toll House tube cookies, you know, the ones that you just unroll and pop in oven. I wanted to know of my dd could have these when were are at other peoples houses. Toll House ones all have the possible nut warnings on. But the Pillsbury ones have nut flours in! I couldn't believe it. Sugar cookie has peanut, macadamia, pecan and walnut flours in! The Christmas ones do too, as well as the plain ones i'm sure.
Maybe someone has already posted this before, i don't know, but just wanted to let everyone know especially with all the holiday candy and cookies out now.

OH ...darn. My son just outgrew his egg allergy and I was going to buy some of these today. Thanks for the heads up. I think they USED to not have the warning. :-(

I read on this board that nut flour actually just means "may contain". Not that we would buy it, but it explains why you would have "nut flour" in sugar cookies. It means that they are either on shared lines or just in the same plant.

I have been buying several varieties of Pillsbury premade cookie dough. I read their warnings - as they seem to be extensive. Many of the tube shaped varieties seem to have no nut warnings. I have been buying them, and my PA son has been eating them for months without a problem. Knock on wood. Am I wrong to do this? I aviod the Pillsbury products WITH the warning - obviously.

same with me, Lisa V. I called Pillsbury awhile back and the lady told me that the reason that they started using the nut flours was because of customer demand. (Now really, who has the time to call Pillsbury and ASK for the nut flours to be added to cookies!!

I have always had good luck using Pillsbury and I really believe that they use careful labelling practices. I probably will continue using the ones that don't have the warning on the labels. Just my two cents . . .

The ready-to-bake Christmas cookies do not have a warning. At least, the "snowman" ones don't. Not sure about the new "gingerbread" holiday in a roll. Those sound yummy!

When I last called Pillsbury (about a year ago), I was told to read each label each time because the labelling varies based on which factory produced that particular roll of that variety of cookie dough. Perhaps that's why the first poster is seeing labelling that's different that the rest of us are seeing.
Personally, I've not seen the nut flours listed as ingredients or warnings on the slice and bake Pillsbury sugar cookies rolls.

Maybe the ingredients vary between the States, depending on where they are made. I am in PA.

I have only been able to use the chocolate chunk tube cookies made by Pillsbury. These are the only tube cookies without the warning. We have been using the ready to bake rounds with the ghosts, pumpkins, santas, reindeer, ect. These are labled for egg and I believe wheat allergy. No nuts listed . We have had them at least ten times. The new ready to make with the frosting discs included are labeled as "may contain" and we have not used these. We also use Pillsbury brownie mix all of the time with no problems. Once again, the only one listed as egg and wheat allerlgy and no nuts.
