  • In honor of the 15th anniversary of the movie “Elf,” Pillsbury has released a line of “Elf”-inspired sugar cookies.
  • The cookies feature Buddy the Elf’s signature green and yellow hat from the holiday film.
  • The cookies can be found at Target, Walmart and Kroger, Meijer, Albertson, Safeway, Ahold, and Delhaize.

As it nears the holiday season, Pillsbury’s latest holiday treats have begun hitting the shelves.

Pillsbury has added ready-to-bake, Buddy the Elf sugar cookie dough to their line-up of holiday treats. According to a representative from Pillsbury, the cookies are to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the release of “Elf” the movie.

Each package comes with 24 individual sugar cookies, crafted from Pillsbury’s traditional ready-to-bake dough, Pillsbury told INSIDER. The cookies feature Buddy’s signature hat in the iconic green and yellow colors from the film.

Instagram user JunkFoodAdventures first discovered the cookies on the shelves of Walmart earlier this week.

Although these seasonal treats have yet to appear on Pillsbury’s website alongside their other festive favorites such as reindeer, snowman, and Christmas tree cookies, the “Elf” themed cookies have already been spotted in stores and on Target’s website.

The cookies have Buddy the Elf's signature hat on them.

Fans seem to think a tweet from Pillsbury from last holiday season indicates a customer request may have, in part, led to the creation of the “Elf”-themed sugar cookies.

The cookies can be found at Target, Walmart and Kroger, Meijer, Albertson, Safeway, Ahold, and Delhaize.
