Forget about Jolene. This holiday season, Dolly will be singing, “jolly, jolly, jolly, jolly!”

Meet the Dolly Parton sugar cookie mix. This festive kit is her ninth and newest collaboration with Duncan Hines and the latest product in her collection of greatest baking hits with the company. If our past experience with Dolly’s recipes and products is any indicator, this kit promises to be as sweet as Dolly Parton’s butterscotch pie and as festive as her line of Dolly Parton partyware.

What is Dolly Parton’s sugar cookie kit?

The Dolly Parton by Duncan Hines Sugar Cookie Kit includes cookie mix, festive frosting, holiday sprinkles, a keepsake recipe booklet and a barcode for a holiday video message from Dolly herself. It’s perfect for a winter baking project with the kids or to take along to a holiday gathering with friends and family (preferably served after Dolly’s hickory grilled ham)

Where can I buy the Dolly Parton sugar cookie mix?

Unlike the birthday cake of Dolly Parton’s dreams, the Dolly Parton by Duncan Hines Sugar Cookie Kit is available online directly from Duncan Hines with an MSRP of $6.98 and can also be found at most major retailers and grocers. Don’t delay. This collaboration is a limited-time offering and will only be available for the next few months.

The Verdict

With four recipe options, we opted to test Dolly’s Favorite Cinnamon Swirl Cookies (in hopes that they taste like her Dollywood cinnamon bread recipe), which is printed on the back of the box. We loved how easily the dough came together and that it required minimal additional ingredients that we had readily available in our pantry.

As for taste, the sugar cookies were the perfect balance of crisp and chewy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. Our cookie wreaths had the perfect amount of cinnamon and were great for those who want only a little icing drizzled on top rather than a thick layer smeared all over.

What we love most about this kit is its versatility. Unlike other sugar cookie kits that include just one recipe (maybe two if you’re lucky), this kit contains four festive recipes. There’s truly a recipe for everyone. Sugar cookie purists will enjoy the original recipe, while kids will adore the sugar cookie Christmas tree option. We can’t wait to pick up another kit to try one of the other recipe options.
