Gingerbread-Turtle Thumbprint Cookies
Give the classic turtle a seasonal twist with our famous gingerbread cookie dough. Then fill the thumbprints with dulce de leche or caramel sauce for an instant classic.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups
Get cozy with easy-to-make cookie cups that take a cue from a minty mug of hot cocoa. Best served warm after sledding or snowman-building.
Cranberry-Stuffed Eggnog Cookies
Cranberry + eggnog? It’s a match made in holiday-flavor heaven. Whip up a batch for neighborhood holiday parties, red-cheeked carolers or just because!
Get a grip on scooping. Pillsbury food editor Madison Mayberry recommends a good-quality metal scoop to ensure even-handed dough dollops. “Trust me, you’ll never bother with two spoons again,” she says.
