UPDATE: I was afraid the Pillsbury dough would not be the way to go. After all your wonderful advice I have decided I might as well find the time to make the sugar cookie dough. It will be well worth my while and the end result will be just what I am hoping for!
I have a VERY packed weekend, but must bake and perfectly frost sugar cookies at some point. I LOVE my family's sugar cookie recipe, but unfortunately just do not have the time to make it this weekend. My question for you all is: does the Pillsbury sugar cookie dough work with cookie cutters? I want to make sure the cookies will not get too puffy and that they keep their shape. It is not cute when a cookie is puffy and then frosting only makes it look worse. You get the picture... So, is it safe to go with the Pillsbury dough and/or does anyone have any other suggestions? I do plan to make my frosting (royal icing in fact!) so I am all set in that area. I figure mix a little home made with some pre-made, add some love and they will hopefully look almost perfect!
