Pillsbury Read-to-Bake Cookies

Have you heard of this thing called a “full switch?" Apparently, when some people enjoy a delicious dessert—cookies, say—there’s a point where they think, “No more. That was enough delicious for me."

I am not one of these people. Basically, I am done eating cookies when the cookies are gone. Recently I learned something that just might save me from myself, and it’s so simple that I can’t believe I never thought to try it. You know the ready-to-bake refrigerated dough that comes pre-portioned in cookie-sized hunks? You can actually stick the refrigerated dough in the freezer and just bake the cookies one (or two) at a time from frozen. You don’t even have to defrost the dough.

Apparently I’m one of the last people on the Internet not to have heard of this—maybe you’ve been doing it all along too? But I’m loving this single-serve way of making cookies. I like that technically, I am both exercising portion control and eating the whole batch.

So enjoy eating the whole batch/plate of perfectly portioned cookies—no “full switch” required.

Look for ready-to-bake refrigerated dough at your local grocery store. Find a retailer near you.
