Pillsbury…simply Cookies Review & Giveaway

by Nicole on August 20, 2009

I love to bake but don’t often do so because of time. I’m sure many of you are in similar situations! I prefer baking from scratch as I can control the ingredients and what goes into my food. That may change, though, with these very cool new cookies from Pillsbury called …simply Cookies!

Pillsbury…simply Cookies are ready to bake pre-scored cookies found in the refrigerated section. They are available in two flavors (chocolate chip or peanut butter) and are made with wholesome ingredients like flour, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla and have zero grams trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial colors or flavors and no preservatives. Wow, are my days of baking cookies from scratch over?

Thanks to the kind people at My Blog Spark, I was able to try a package of these cookies. I chose the chocolate chip and was happy with how easy they were to prepare. Just a few minutes to preheat the oven and separate the cookies onto the baking sheet and into the oven and then into my mouth! It couldn’t have been easier and the cookies truly are delicious. I loved knowing how simple and natural the ingredients were and would definitely buy these again.

You can print a coupon for $1.25 off of these cookies right now!

I make my cooking more simple by first bringing out all the ingredients and placing them on the counter, then making my list if I need anything, which my husband will then run out for me to get. :) I use simple wholesome ingredients and prefer using products that have simple ingredients also.

Oh my gosh! This is the cutest blog EVER!

Well, to keep my cooking simple, I like to write out a long list at the beginning of each week. I decide which things can be lunch, which can be leftovers and plan around my crazy life schedule!

I use some mixes and add to them, frozen vegetables, plan my meal and prep ahead of time, clean as I go and cook enough for two nights.

I have made my cooking easier just by going back to basics. Easy, homestyle meals with simple ingredients. It doesnt need a fancy name or lots of hard to find ingredients in small amounts to taste wonderful. This also means lots of comfort foods!

17 Peggy August 29, 2009 at 8:05 pm

When I am cooking I cook as to what takes the longest and prepare the that, I clean as I go. It makes it so much easier when the baking is done. I also try to make large batches so everyone enjoys

When I do my basic cooking, I stick with recipes that only call for a few items! When I bake cookies, I generally get my daughter to help!

I like to make things that don't have a lot of unusual ingredients. It saves a lot of money not to buy ingredients you will use only once.

To make my cooking simple I prepare in advance and freeze things up for days I do not feel like cooking. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.
