Directions

  1. Beat butter, sugar, dry pudding mix and egg in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Mix remaining ingredients. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating well after each addition. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness; cut into gingerbread shapes with 4-inch cookie cutter, re-rolling trimmings. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray. Use straw to make hole near top of each cutout.
  3. Bake 10 to 12 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 3 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Decorate as desired. Insert ribbon through holes to hang cookies on tree.

Instead of rolling it flat and using a cookie cutter, I rolled the dough into little balls, covered the balls in sugar, and pressed them a little flat on the baking sheet. I loved the balance of sweet and spice and my 2 year old loved them too.

I absolutely love this recipe. I don't use it for the tree decoration though. I use it as a gingerbread cookie recipe. I make them every year for my family for Christmas. It's a big hit. :)
