I can't necessarily claim this one as my own, but I will say, I made a lack luster product shine!
Wegmans, our amazing grocery store in the Northeastern USA, carries a ton of Gluten Free products and recently tripled their offerings.
One item that caught my attention was frozen sugar cookie dough. It was expensive...but the convenience! Each week when I go shopping, I try to find one new item and give it a shot. This was the cookie dough week. The dough is made by Gillians, here is a stock photo:
Eh. It was very "gluten free tasting". That bland, crumbly, blah. That said, I still ate them on those occasions you just need a little cookie. Then my cookie met Nutella. They were so dry, I dipped the last two into Nutella.
Can you guess what I did next???
My cookie met Nutella BEFORE it hung out in the oven. With absolutely no measuring, I added one part Nutella to 3 parts cookie dough...very mathematical people. Mixed it up in my hands and formed balls.
I lightly pressed them flat and stuck them in the oven. Once they came out, I sprinkled a bit of sugar on top.
That is a pleasant cookie. It isn't the best I've made, but it's a cookie. With Nutella...need I say more?
The remaining 4 dough balls were rolled in sugar and not pressed flat...not so good.
But I still ate them.
All of them.
