When it comes to the holidays, nothing says Christmas quite like cookies and candy canes. Whether it’s leaving Santa a plate of freshly baked cookies as a thank you for his hard work, or adorning your Christmas tree with the sweet peppermint treat, the two are etched in the hearts and minds of millions across the globe. But if baking a fresh batch of Peppermint Pinwheel Cookies from scratch sounds impossible to fit into your already busy schedule, don’t worry — Pillsbury’s new Candy Cane Cookie Dough is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and save you time.

Not to be confused with Pillsbury’s Peppermint Sugar Cookie flavor, this limited-edition dough combines the classic taste of a sugar cookie with bits of candy cane. While that alone may be enough to fill you with holiday cheer,  the best part about the newest flavor is you have the option to bake it or safely consume it raw. Each roll of the premade dough comes ready for you to form into little balls and place on your favorite baking sheet. And, after only 12 to 15 minutes in the oven, these cookies are ready to be enjoyed. With the sweet aroma of candy canes and sugar cookies filling your home, don’t be surprised if Santa wants to come down your chimney a little early this year. 

The limited-edition Candy Cane Cookie Dough will be available at most major retailers throughout the holiday season for just $3.29, so be sure to pick up one or two the next time you’re out shopping. These are sure to be a hit at all of your holiday parties and a go-to-treat for your late night binge of classic holiday movies.
