Pillsbury Simply . . . Refrigerated Cookie Dough Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winners are Jennifer Jozwiak, Yvonne Butler, and Carol. Congrats!

My kids love cookies.  Actually, mom likes cookies too;  she just doesn’t like all the work that is involved with making them. However, Pillsbury has once again come to my rescue with their new line of cookies. My family and I tried them last night, and I have one word for you: Yum. Seriously yum. I like quick and easy, and these refrigerated cookies were just that. You literally open the bag, stick them in the oven, and 12 minutes later you have your cookie goodness. It is that easy. Best of all, they are good, and they are good for you. These cookies are made with ingredients you’ve heard of like flour, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. You’ll recognize the ingredients on the label. The cookies also have no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. The packaging is pretty uncomplicated too — just white with a picture of the cookie on it. It actually sticks out a bit at the grocery store, because it is so plain.

These new cookies are available in both chocolate chip and peanut butter. They make a great snack (and even a breakfast, but we won’t tell anyone about that, right?). I’ve arranged with Pillsbury to give 3 of my lucky readers a Pillsbury tote bag. Each tote bag has two coupons in it that entitle you to a free package of Pillsbury Simply . . . Refrigerated Cookie Dough. (Now, if you can’t wait after looking at those yummy pictures, click here and get a coupon for them!
