  • 1 tube (16-1/2 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough

"The filling on this is nice, certainly not 5 star rating but not bad at all. Which is why I'm giving this a 3 rather a 2. The use of the store bought cookie dough is what absolutely kills it. It gives it a horrible horrible taste. So much so I've tossed this batch. Do yourself a favor and take an extra 30 minutes to make your own shortbread."
