Review: Pillsbury - Lucky Charms Cookie Dough

Pillbury's Lucky Charms Cookie Dough features sugar cookie dough with colorful marshmallow bits.

A 14-oz package costs about $2.99 but I received this courtesy of Pillsbury.

The Lucky Charms Cookie Dough comes in pre-shaped, pre-cut rounds so you just have to throw them in the oven until your desired doneness. They're safe to eat raw so you don't have to worry if they're undercooked.

I baked these in the toaster oven at the lower end of the recommended time and they ended up browning a good deal. The resulting cookies were good for a slightly crumbly, crispy crust and a soft, moist interior. I also tried baking some in the air fryer and those turned out super crispy, while retaining the same interior texture. Despite what the package says, the cookies didn't turn out particularly "big" (and certainly not "BIG").

Flavor-wise, they're fairly standard sugar cookies with a hint of vanilla and small pockets of gooey, sticky marshmallows. The marshmallows were mostly there for texture and color (and sticking to the foil I baked the cookie dough on).

Overall, Pillsbury Lucky Charms Cookie Dough makes for a solid choice if you're in the mood for warm, sugar cookies with colorful marshmallows. Even browning them as much as I did still yielded a decently moist crumb. However, if you're a Lucky Charms fan, you might be a bit miffed that you get the color but not the shape of Lucky Charms marshmallows.
