Adventures in Laziness
So I’m in the grocery store tonight and I see the latest innovation in the world of laziness. Pillsbury “Ready to Bake” cookies:
This pre-made cookie dough is already portioned out into “cookie rounds,” so you just throw them onto a cookie sheet and bake.
Because, you know, baking cookies from the regular pre-made Pillsbury cookie dough:
… where you have a tube of o’dough that you have to take 5.2 seconds to cut the dough into “rounds” before you throw them on a cookie sheet… well, that’s just too insurmountable a task.
In the interest of full disclosure, I’d like to say that I’m much more in favour of eating cookie dough raw than I am of baking the dough into cookies proper and, compared to my homemade dough especially, Pillsbury cookie dough raw is barf-tastic. That’s right, I said it.
