Supermarket Sampler's Junk Foodie on Holiday Cookies Supermarket Sampler by Bonnie Tandy Leblang and Carolyn Wyman -- (12/14/2008) WHAT'S NEW ON THE GROCERS' SHELVES FOR THE HOLIDAYS: “Carolyn: There's no question that pre-made cookie dough has come a long way from the Pillsbury tube days. These tubs of holiday-oriented cookie flavors are a perfect example. All produce a cookie at least as good as any sold in a convenience store or fast-food joint, including Otis Spunkmeyer or packaged Mrs. Field's.

But are these good enough for the holidays? It depends on why you're making Christmas cookies. If it's because you need to feed a crowd something that's nearly homemade in quality but don't have time to bake and can't afford the price of cookies in the bakery, these would be perfect.

If you're going to give away the cookies as gifts or it's a memory-making cooking project with the kids, you probably should set aside the time, get a good recipe, and haul out the flour and sugar.”

If a junk food fan who admittedly doesn't cook much can say this - then I rest my case on prettying up store-bought dough.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
