Do you use premade cookie dough, cookie dough rolls, refrigerated cookies?

I think those cookies that come in a roll and you slice and they have seasonal designs in them are fun. If they are on sale I buy them. It also saves time and work this time of year which is already so busy.

The downside is the expense and they don't taste as good as real homemade.

What do you think? Do you use them?

I do the seasonal designs as well..... i also try to bake homemade PB cookies since i am the only one who eats them.   It is sad I am the only one in family to eat cookies =(.  My guy is not supposed to since he is type 2 diabetic.  DD does not like sweets.

 I don't make cookies very often and if I do then I do it from scratch shockingly.   I'm not a baker but I'll make cookies from scratch.  Soon I'm going to make Egg nog cookies.

I don't think it's bad to get the premade dough.  Some people just don't want to mess with homemade stuff like that, lol.

Nope...everything I bake lately is from scratch...except biscuits. I love them homemade, but I can't find my grandpa's recipe, and it's the best.

It depends on my mood. If I want to take the time ill do from scratch, but I otherwise I use the pre made or the powder.
