Cookie Confession

I've got a confession to make.

I'm obviously an avid baker, and 99 out of 100 times, would much prefer to much to make things from scatch.

But I do have a soft spot for Pillsbury Christmas Ready-to-Bake cookies. My disclaimer: I swear that I have not been given anything to write this post about the cookies! I honest to God like them and all the fun holiday shapes they come in.

I remember eyeing the Christmas choices (I believe it was between a reindeer, snowman or a Christmas tree) and I opted for the trees.

So what prompted me to write a post all about these cookies? Other than the fact that I love their overtly sweet flavor , crispy exterior and soft interiors? The fact that the Christmas ornaments on the trees pop up after you're done baking them!

I'm hoping this comes through on the pictures - the cookie dough goes in flat, and comes out like this:

A closer look at the amazing sight that caused me to exclaim out loud in delight - even Andrew agreed that they looked cool. I'm pretty sure none of their other designs do anything like this, and it's not even mentioned on the box.

Just had to share!

Are they shortbread cookies?

Nope, although shortbread makes me crave Walker's shortbread cookies now - I do have a good recipe for shortbread as well, I'll have to make that soon.

The cookies I referenced are just plain sugar cookies that you find in the refrigerated section in most grocery stores, the kind that come in pre-cut balls so all you have to do is put them on a pan and bake them.

These cookies are on par with Jersey Shore, trashy romance novels, and Uggs - things that I love and am ashamed to admit.

So true! I should've called them a guilty pleasure!

Wow! I have always avoided those 'predecorated' cookie rolls, but that is really amazing!

CHicks, I'm ashamed to say that these cookies are even lazier than the predecorated rolls - they come in boxes pre cut!
