Why I Love This Recipe

A fun way to get into the holiday season: let the kids help with the cookie cutter and then decorate! Also make edible tree ornaments!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 5.9 oz. pkg. butterscotch pudding mix
3/4 C. butter
3/4 C. firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 1/4 C. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbs. ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon


Cream pudding mix with butter and sugar; add egg, and blend well.

Combine flour, baking soda, ginger, and cinnamon; blend into pudding mixture.

Chill dough for 1 hour or until firm.

Roll dough on a floured board to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut with cookie cutter.

Place on greased baking sheets; use a straw to make a hole in the top of the cookie for hanging on the tree, if desired.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.

Decorate if desired.
