I feel like no cookie countdown is complete without one or two super simple options. Recipes like this one come in handy when you have a last-minute (or forgotten) party to go to, when your cookie platter looks a little bare, or when you just plain don’t have time to make something from scratch.
During the winter months, Pillsbury puts out a prepackaged gingerbread dough that’s pretty darn good. Spicy, sweet and oh-so-creamy — no one will ever guess you didn’t make these from scratch.
If you are really short on time, skip the homemade creme filling and pipe in a prepackaged cream cheese frosting. (Yep, I’ve had to do this before.) If you have a little leftover cookie dough, bake it and then crumble to sprinkle on top!
