Pillsbury Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cookie Dough Review

Nothing says Fall is here quite like baked goods with pumpkin or spiced apples. Pillsbury has got you covered with several festive items like Grands Pumpkin Spice Rolls, Salted Caramel Apple Cookie Dough, and, the star of this review, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cookie Dough. Pillsbury Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cookie Dough comes ready-to-bake and conveniently portioned into a dozen large cookies. You can bake them one at a time or all at once, so it works great for both the single person and larger families.

Does this pumpkin cookie dough with cream cheese chips deliver a deliciously festive cookie when baked? You can see what our Food Rankers team thinks and how our cookies turned out in this review!

Pillsbury Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cookie Dough Review

This cookie dough has a pleasantly warm, sweet scent of pumpkin and spices straight from the package. You can also clearly see the pumpkin, cream cheese chips, and specks of cinnamon in the cookies as you place them on a baking sheet. Once you have them on a cookie sheet, they need to bake for 14-18 minutes at 350 degrees.

Pillsbury Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cookie Dough will have your house smelling like fresh-baked fall treats and your mouth watering in no time. The warm scent that begins to fill the air after just a few minutes of baking time is so good that we wish it could be bottled and used as air freshener. Seriously!

After about 16 minutes, our cookies were done to perfection, soft and slightly doughy in the middle with crispy edges.

The cookies are best eaten warm and evoke all the feelings that you would expect from a sweet pumpkin treat. Cream cheese chips add extra sweetness and richness to the pumpkin cookies. The cinnamon and spice notes are just right, present but not overpowering. We quickly devoured the whole dozen and wished we had a few more.

Overall, Pillsbury Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cookie Dough is simple to prepare and is much less messy than making homemade cookies. It makes a large, soft cookies that taste nearly as good as their homemade counterparts. The only criticism came from one person that felt the cookies were slightly too sweet.
