Pillsbury™ Cookie Dough

Ingredients

  • 1 roll Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 1/2 cups white vanilla baking chips (9 oz)
  • 3/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts, if desired
  • 1 can (14 oz) fat-free sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch pan with foil; spray foil with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Add lemon peel; beat with electric mixer on low speed until peel is well combined. Press dough in bottom of pan. Sprinkle white chips, coconut and macadamia nuts over dough.
  • 3
    In small bowl, stir together condensed milk, lemon juice and lemon extract. Pour over top.
  • 4
    Bake 28 to 35 minutes or until edges are golden brown and center is slightly glossy. Cool completely, about 45 minutes. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.

  • Macadamia nuts are expensive, so they're optional. You can also use pecans or walnuts, or omit the nuts altogether.
  • The lemon extract is optional but adds a punch of lemon flavor.
  • For a more decorative bar, melt an additional 1/2 cup white vanilla baking chips and drizzle over the cooled bars.
