Not To Be Trusted With Knives

{July 7, 2008}   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.

Stacia says:

I love raw cookie dough, but can’t enjoy it right now. I actually make cookies from scratch and my stepkids didn’t know you could do that. How sad is that?

Beth says:

That is sad. But I’m glad you are introducing them to the world of homemade cookies!

gillicious says:

Next they’ll come with a robotic doughboy who’ll bake them for you in its oven belly.

I’m lazy beyond belief, but instant cookies like that are sacriligious as far as I’m concerned. I bake from scratch, yo.
