Gingerbread Men

This recipe for gingerbread men uses butterscotch pudding mix and doesn't require molasses!


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

    • ½ cup butter

    • ½ cup packed brown sugar

    • 1 egg

    • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

    • ½ teaspoon baking soda

    • 1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger

    • 1 teaspoon 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 (175 degrees C). 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 in the preheated oven, until cookies are golden at the edges. Cool on wire racks.
