Not to be confused with Pillsbury pumpkin-flavored cookies. It’s only October 17th and my local Kroger was already very eager to get rid of this “shape and bake” treat and had discounted them to “10/$10.” Okay, I’ll take one package for one dollar.
I’m not going to write “baking these cookies couldn’t be simpler!” because obviously having someone else bake them for me would be easier. But I will tell you I probably could bake them blindfolded. Actually, I could probably bake them without even trying, accidentally even, if I tripped, tore open the package, and hurled the cookies into an open oven.
I put down wax paper on the pan just to feel like I was making some effort.
I remember when I was little thinking that Pillsbury sugar cookies were of a reasonable circumference. Now they are the size of checkers and lend themselves to be eaten by the handful.
To slow down my rate of consumption I made them into sandwich cookies with store-bought frosting. (Please, like I’m going to waste homemade icing made from unpasteurized milk and Irish butter on these things.)
It worked and I only ate six.
