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