Buddy the Elf cookies are about to make the holidays WAY more fun.
Sure, it’s fun to get out the cookie cutters, whip up a batch of sugar cookies from scratch and spend an afternoon decorating them. We can’t think of a better group project with family or friends. But if you’re someone who enjoys baking cookies without all the prep and cleanup, Pillsbury’s ready-to-bake cookies are for you. You know—the squishy tubes of cookie dough in your supermarket’s refrigerated case?
It’s This Holiday Season’s Cutest Cookie
Elf fans will remember that Will Ferrell’s character, Buddy, wears a green and yellow outfit. He’s decidedly out of place in New York, but Buddy’s outfit, along with his upbeat personality, gave him a place in plenty of fans’ hearts. It’s only natural that Pillsbury decided to honor the character by featuring his adorable green and yellow hat on the sugar cookies. Too cute!
Each box contains 20 pre-cut cookies for the ultimate convenience. And if you want more variety, there are plenty of other Christmas-themed styles available. The full selection includes Christmas trees, snowmen, reindeer and more. (But if that’s not your thing, we won’t discourage you from trying our adorable elf cookie recipe.)
Where Can I Buy Elf Sugar Cookies?
The good news is that these Pillsbury ready-to-bake cookies are readily available at most retailers, as well as online at Walmart, Target and Instacart. Pick up a pack or two—they only cost about $2.50—and while you’re at it, put some Elf coffee creamer in your cart too. And if you really want to take this theme to the next level, there’s also a Buddy the Elf Frappuccino coming down the chimney at Starbucks.
