It’s 8:00pm on a Tuesday night. Kids are in bed and I’m ready to make chocolate chip cookies. I put my PJs and slippers on and start to grab all of the ingredients that I need.
I go to grab my sugar canister and it’s near empty. I open my lazy susan and roll it around to find 3 bags of flour and not one bag of sugar.
I ask Craig if he’d run to the store for me since I was dressed for bed. He said just put on a jacket, who cares!? So I did. Put my jacket on and ran to Target.
All I needed was a bag of sugar and another package of pie crusts. But since I was there and it WAS getting late, I grabbed a bag of the Pillsbury chocolate chip ready to cook cookies. Yep, I took the easy route this time. But I think it’ll be ok with what I’m making. With me, sometimes easier can be better!!
And speaking of Target…who can run to that store and just get what you need? I saw THE cutest cookie pans and had to get them.
I don’t have any of the silicone baking sheets. When I saw some shaped like an Easter bunny I thought that would be a great idea to melt the tie dye crayons I wanted to make with the kids (saw those on Pinterest). That’s another post!
And then I saw Spring Treats Cookie sheet with flower, egg, and bug shapes, I knew I’d be making some cute sugar cookies. And so then when I saw the colored sprinkles of sugar, well…those had to mine as well.
So my “three” item adventure in my PJs and slippers turned out to be a bit more. But more fun will be had!!
1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
8 Pillsbury® Ready to Bake!® refrigerated chocolate chip cookies (from 16-oz package)
8 milk chocolate candy drops or pieces, unwrapped – I got Dove mini bars and Hershey’s chocolate pieces
1 teaspoon sugar – I used White Sparkling Sugar
1 Heat oven to 450°F. Remove pie crusts from pouches; unroll on work surface. Cut eight 3 1/2-inch rounds from each crust.
2 Place 1 unbaked cookie in center of each of 8 of the rounds; top each with 1 candy, pointed end into cookie. Brush edge of each crust with water. Top with remaining 8 rounds. Press edges together with fork to seal. Brush top of each with water; sprinkle with sugar.
3 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
I made the rest of the pre-made cookies since I only used 8 of them!!
We still have some of the Pumpkin Muffins left over from the other day, but these were calling someone’s name in my house!
Have a great rest of the week.
