Ok so I MUCH prefer using the recipe for NFSC for decorated cookies but at my side job I hae to do a product demonstration for the pillsbury sugar cookie tub. I am wanting to make a cookie bouquet display for this event however I have never tried this sugar cookie dough being rolled out thick enough to do cookies on a stick.

Has anyone ever tried cookie bouquets with this dough and how should I adjust the time/temp to accomodate?

I tried Pillsbury dough once and the cookies didn't hold their shape.

YIKES! you are right!!! I bought the cookie dough in the tube because it was on sale for half off and tried my letter cookie cutters .... it spreadd horribly! hmmmm maybe I will just cut circles and decorate those with the latters. they look HORRIBLE hahaha. I would make my own dough to do a display tat is pretty but tat would be a bit misleading I think lol ugh ... wy cant premade dough be as good as home made!

You could recut the cookies after baking 'for a super sharp and professional finish' although then it would be. Case of sticking the stick onto the back rather than bakin it in.

we eat a couple then trash the rest.

There are some things I just refuse to spend any time or energy on and saving "scraps" of food is one of them. dunce.gif

I normally eat them! Only done it once tho, the other time I needed crumbs for dirt, so it worked out! I suppose u could freeze them, and save for a cheesecake!

you can add additional flour to the premade dough and they hold their shape better.

Princess _b, love the idea about using the scraps for cheesecake base, never thought of that. I sell a ton of decorated cookies, wedding favors etc, so I always have a lot. Thanks for the idea.
