So what premade products do you use or doctor up during the holidays?
For example I found the (apparently discontinued ) Pillsbury gingerbread dough in the refrigerator case, made better gingerbread cookies than most people's home made gingerbread. I have also served the mac and cheese (something I really don't associate with Christmas, but my friends do) from the Costco deli, and actually got compliments on it.
What tips and tricks for making things easier does everyone else have?
