There are other brands of refrigerated cookie dough on the market that do not list trans fat as an ingredient.

Mrs685, that is what makes them shelf stable. Partially hydrogenated items are what allows us the convenience of cake mix, Bisquik, and pizza dough/cookies/biscuits in a can. For example, if you were to make your own "baking mix" (aka Bisquik), the only way you could make it keep would be to add shortening like Crisco -- a tub of trans fat. If you are that health conscious, you need to make these items from scratch yourself before every recipe.
Speaking of which, I have a half batch of frozen homemade peanut butter cookie dough that I am using to make these for my Mother's Day gift. Mom love

Don't know why Pillsbury continues to put trans fat in their refrigerated cookie rolls. Extremely unhealthy.

Love salted caramels! Will make this soon. I wonder if we can use the Dulce de Leche in a can for the caramel part.

loved these little things! My grandchildren helped make them. I baked them for 15 min, pushed hole in and baked another five min. When doing the caramel, I mashed and stirred a lot instead of microwaving more knowing that it would make the caramel cool on the tough side. they were great! Next time we may use chocolate caramels or put some ganache on before the sea salt!

I also used mini muffin tins to make these. I purchased Choc chip cookie dough in a roll (went to two stores and couldn't find any peanut butter dough). Anyway, I used the caramel baking bits that you can find in the baking isle and added 2 tablespoons of milk to them before melting. Mine turned out delicious and very soft, even after 2 days. Some of the reviews saying the caramel was too hard may have over-melted them in the microwave. My microwave melted them in just under 2 minutes on high. Added the salt right after adding the caramel into the cookie cups.

This is not my tip, from one of the reviews but thought it was an excellent idea so wanted to be sure others were aware of it: "Here is another version. Instead of the melted caramel, use chocolate covered caramel cups or peanut butter cups. Walmart carries their version which are about $3 and they are available in the candy aisle. They work really well in this recipe."
THANK YOU FOR THE TIP COUNTRYJULES1964 - SOUNDS GREAT! (hope you don't mind my sharing your post)

Tried these for Easter dinner. Was NOT a big hit. Very chewy. Will not make again.

The flavor was really good but my caramel got really hard after they cooled off. I doubt that I would take the time to do them again just for that reason.
