Holiday Baking Night: Gingerbread Cookies

Thanks to Nestle Toll House for sponsoring this post, and thanks to readers for reading the occasional sponsored post so we can continue to fund our date nights. 
We love fitting in some holiday baking, evidence here and here. It’s a holiday tradition we’ve created together that always gets us in the holiday spirit. However, often the busy season gets the best of us and we have a hard time finding the time to make the baked goods we so love doing.
We found a wonderful secret that let us fit in a holiday baking date night even on a very busy week.
Because of this baby we were able to welcome these friends into our home!

This year Nestle rolled out the Nestle Rolled & Ready Cooke Dough Sheets. For about $2.50 you can pick up one of these and make a full tray of cookies.

No kidding with the rolled and ready part, you pull them out, cut out your cookies, and bake for about 8 minutes. It is pretty awesome to save all the steps of baking in the prep process.

We felt like such cheaters, but cheating on baking never felt so right!

 

I was nervous they would taste too processed since cookies are my love language and I’m a baking snob. I can’t speak for their other flavors, but their gingerbread was seriously excellent! I kept thinking how excellent it would be to make a gingerbread house or creative structure with fresh dough all ready to go. Maybe next year things won’t be so crazy for Jacob at work, and we’ll be engineering fun structures with our own designs!

We were glad the 30 minutes we had available together was spent decorating and enjoying the spoils. It’s amazing how a few shortcuts and being resourceful means you can still enjoy some of your holiday traditions even during a busy season!
