I used to sell Pampered Chef, so I have quite a few of their recipe books and reviews of their recipes. This one turned out very pretty and tasty. Although it does use a log of dough and Cool Whip – hydrogenated oils. Pampered Chef likes this because it makes it faster and easier to make when doing a cooking show. And if you have nothing against Cool Whip or the Pillsbury Dough Boy, it will be fine. But if you are trying to make delicious and pretty desserts without hydrogenated oils, then it might take a few more steps. The best thing about these is that they look pretty fancy, but are rather easy to make.
You can find a sugar cookie dough to substitute for the Pillsbury log here in my Homemade Fruit Pizza recipe.
To replace Cool Whip, simply use real whipped cream. Instructions: Beat 1cup whipping cream on high in a cold bowl with cold beaters until peaks start to form. (Alton Brown stated you don’t need to have them cold… but I still do when I can.) Beat in 1tsp. vanilla and 1Tbs. of powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Easy! Just don’t overbeat!
