Easy No Spread Sugar Cookie Grocery Store Hack

We did a little experimenting in the CCHQ kitchen this week!

For everyone who is rushing around this holiday season, we have a minimal spread quick sugar cookie hack for you! 

We are all looking for extra time during the holidays to “get it ALL done”. This hack is perfect for whipping up a super-quick batch of ready-to-decorate sugar cookies to practice on, for a last-minute cookie swap, or for decorating with the kiddos. 

We found Pillsbury “Ready to Bake” Sugar Cookie Dough (comes in pull-apart squares) was the best for this recipe.


  • Let one package of the “Ready to Bake, Tear & Bake” Sugar Cookie dough come to room temperature.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

  • Place the sugar cookie dough in the mixing bowl using the paddle attachment.

  • Add ¾ cup of all-purpose flour in with the cookie dough.

  • Mix until incorporated. The mixture will be a bit “crummy”.

  • Roll out the dough ball between two sheets of parchment paper. (I used the ¼” Cookie Countess precision rolling pin).

  • The dough does not to be chilled before baking.

  • Cut your shapes & bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-13 minutes. 

  • As soon as your cookies are baked, you can use a fondant smoother to make the cookie less “puffy”.

  • Let cook & then you’re ready to decorate. 


  • You can double or triple this recipe.

We didn't feel that the addition of the flour dried out the cookie at all, they were tasty and still had a soft bite.

From everyone here at CCHQ, have a happy and magical holiday season!
