fancy cookie dough...


My new favorite snack to have on hand lately is really good pre-made cookie dough. As much as I would love to be the type of domestic goddess who could just whip up cookies from scratch on a whim, it's just not the way it all goes down. I'd much rather buy cookies from someone who is a better baker than me and know they'll satisfy my serious cookie cravings.


So, as a good compromise to myself, I've been stocking up fancy cookie dough. It's something I love having on hand in the fridge or freezer and can make a few at a time {or a whole dozen} when the mood strikes. And, it's way quicker than making them from scratch and guaranteed to be good if you're not a natural baker like me. One of my favorite options for dough available locally is from FarmShop in Brentwood. These chocolate chunk cookies are crazy good {dark chocolate cookie with dark, milk, and white chocolate chunks}. I defrosted the dough, followed the directions, and they came out perfect. I also love the Simply... Pillsbury and Immaculate Baking Co. ones for brands available at the grocery store. And, so good for last minute gifts to bring to a party or potluck! — Joy
