Gingerbread Men Cookies

These cookies are so good, they are not your traditional gingerbread cookie, they are much better!

  • 1 (3.5 oz.) package cook and serve butterscotch pudding mix

  • 1/2 C. butter

  • 1/2 C. packed brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 1/2 C. flour

  • 1/2 t. baking soda

  • 1 1/2 t. ground ginger

  • 1 t. ground cinnamon

1. In a medium bowl, cream together the dry butterscotch pudding mix, butter, and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the egg. Combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, and cinnamon; stir into the pudding mixture. Cover and chill dough until firm, about 1 hour.

2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease baking sheets. On a floured board, roll dough out to about 1/8 inch thickness, and cut into man shapes using a cookie cutter. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.

3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies are golden at the edges. Cool on wire racks.

**Fat Free pudding and whole wheat flour can be used**
