    Default Ideas for Value Size Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough?

    I purchased three 30-ounce rolls of Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough at my
    local 99-cent store (expiration is March 2010) and threw them in my
    freezer. Does anybody have any good ideas for using them apart from
    the usual slice and bake method? A base for bars? Any other ideas?
    TIA

    Can't pass up a bargain. :-)

    You can make them as bars, IIRC. Check the Pillsbury website and see
    ideas for what types.

    P.S. - Good bargain, by the way

    My one attempt to win the Pillsbury million dollar prize
    was after they changed the rules so that any of several
    products could be used, not just Gold Medal flour.
    I invented a recipe using their cookie dough to make
    muffins. I put brown sugar and butter on the bottom,
    so it would caramelize while the muffin baked, giving
    sort of a candy layer to the bottom of the muffin.
    I'd learned this trick from some other recipe, but that
    was a from-scratch recipe and this had only three
    ingrediants. I entered it in their "Quick Treats and
    Snacks" category, which it certainly was.

    Never heard back from the Pillsbury people.

    Thanks. I checked the pillsbury website and "grabbed" a half dozen
    recipes using RecipeFox and imported them in Mastercook.

    I'd chuck them, myself. But that's just me. I've always thought there
    was something funky about the taste and the texture. Check the
    Pillsbury.com website for recipes; betcha there're more than three
    recipes that use that dough.

    I got this method from my SIL. Use the dough as a bar base, but very
    thin. After cooking and cooled, frost with a thin layer of cream
    cheese icing and cut into squares, but don't remove from the cookie
    sheet yet. On each cookie square, place a few pieces of raspberries,
    blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and any other berry you have.
    This might be better when those fruits are in season, but they are
    very good. I like to alternate fruit colors in a checker board
    pattern.

    If you had the time (and inclination) you could use chocolate frosting along
    with the cc frosting, which you could tint a reddish color......put
    blackberries on the red and red raspberries on the chocolate. Really do
    checkers up.

    You should have thrown it in the garbage. Not fit for human

    Press it out on a round pizza pan and bake. Frost it and top with
    fruit for a dessert pizza.

    A lady at work brought in these apple bars where she took sugar cookie
    dough and laid it out flat on a cookie sheet to cover the entire sheet
    and took a homemade filling for apple pie and spread it about an inch
    thick around the cookie dough, leaving about an inch of cookie dough
    on all sides, then took another layer of sugar cookie dough and put it
    on top and to cover the sides and crimped the edges and baked it and
    it was delicious

    Thanks, Bryan. That was very -- enlightening. My brain feels like it
    only weighs an ounce or so.

    "And today's Last Word in Business also comes from California, that word
    is fat-free."

    Just to make sure I got it right, I read the fine print:

    "NPR transcripts are created on a rush deadline by a contractor for NPR,
    and accuracy and availability may vary. This text may not be in its
    final form and may be updated or revised in the future. Please be aware
    that the authoritative record of NPR's programming is the audio."

    I listened to the audio, also. Same stupid sentence. Fat-free fat,
    it's not just a good idea, it's the law!
