This is not your traditional gingerbread--and I loved that! I have a toddler, and was looking for something more mild. She gobbled these up! I only had vanilla pudding, so i used that, and it still tasted great. I can't wait to use butterscotch (i love the flavor). I used margarine instead of butter and next time i think i will cut the ginger to 1 tsp to suit my tastes. I didn't have any problem with stickiness or dryness, and this was one of the best cut out cookie recipe i've made. I split the dough in half, then put the other part back in the fridge until i needed it. Mine cooked for a full 10 min and were just perfect, so keep an eye on them; at 8 min, they were still doughy. Will make these a new yearly tradition, but will def double the recipe because they disappeared! Decorated with the sugar cookie frosting on this site (powdered sugar, corn syrup, water instead of milk, food colorng).
UPDATE (11/11): I used pumpkin spice pudding mix, with half of the amount of salt, cream cheese frosting and these were awesome for fall!
