Pillsbury Simply Refridgerated Cookies

We love cookies in our house and one of my most favorite snacks has to be chocolate chip cookies and milk. They are the best when they are out of the oven, but I am not always in the mood to go though the whole spiel of making homemade cookie dough.


I have always been a fan of baking and usually steer clear of pre-made cookie dough. I try and make things that have natural ingredients especially when it comes to sweeteners. It seems like so many things these days contain high fructose corn syrup and not just normal sugar. Everything is ok in moderation, even sugar, and it’s actually probably healthier than the modified high fructose used to sweeten just about everything these days.


We were given the chance to try Pillsbury’s new Simply refrigerated cookie dough and the boys and I were very excited to bake them. The new cookies come in two flavors, Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter. They 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. They are just “Simply” made with all the good stuff that makes them taste homemade without the mess of making the dough yourself.


I made the cookies with my boys and it was nice to include them. They had fun putting the cookies on the baking sheet to go in the oven. They were very eager to eat the cookies, so they were really excited to see that they were done in just about 13 minutes. The chocolate chip cookies were so good and we polished a dozen cookies off by the end of the day between the four of us. The next batch I make, I think I will have to hide them. Pillsbury Simply cookies taste just like homemade without the mess, so I will definitely keep a couple packages on had for those sweet tooth cravings.

    I simplify cooking by using fresh ingredients and not too much sauce or dressing. It’s important to taste the FOOD you are eating!

  2. McKim says:

    I try to keep a supply of basics on hand, and then have several recipes that use those ingredients. That way I have a little bit of choice about what to fix each night.

    I make breakfast the night before and just add fruit as a side item in the morning. I babysit several kids and so all I have to do in the morning is warm it up and that makes everyone happier to have it done faster! :D Financially, I type out all of our debt on a chart that I have made from smallest to biggest and pay them off one by one.

  9. Benita B. says:

    For each dinner meal, I cook three simple components: 1. fish, chicken or meat 2. vegetables 3. grain or carbohydrate (potatoes, rice, kasha). Simple.

  12. sandy says:

    we simplify by premaking bundles of meat for tacos and pizza, and sloppy joes, etc. I try to make twice as much if I can and one of the easiest things to do is make huge crockpots of chili and soups so there is a leftover for a few lunches

    I simplify my cooking by making enormous batches when I have time, and freezing leftovers. That way I can pull out prepackaged portions when I don’t have time to cook. The best frozen meals are vegetable soup and lasagna.

    I will make hambugers one night and make extra the next day I will use the left over hamburger to make spaghetti. I do the same thing with grilled chicken. The next day it becomes a salad. This saves me so much time and money.

  106. Rosie says:

    Baking instead of frying keeps things simple and healthy. Frying just smells up the entire house and makes everything messy and greasy in the kitchen.

  107. Christie says:

    One way to simplify cooking is to make double batches of some of your family’s favorite dinners and freeze half of it. For instance a casserole or spaghetti sauce. Then you have a quick easy dinner for a hectic night.

  108. Tricia says:

    To simplify cooking we do as much prep as we can ahead of time – marinate the meat before freezing, cut into the sizes you need for recipes (ie: strips for salads, chunks for stir fry etc), wash all but the most fragile fruits and vegs etc.
