1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 (3.5-ounce) package cook & serve butterscotch-flavored pudding and pie filling mix
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda


Mini candy-coated chocolate pieces, candy buttons, chocolate chips, raisins, red cinnamon candies, etc.
White decorator icing or gel


Heat oven to 350°F. Combine butter, brown sugar and pudding mix in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, ginger, cinnamon and baking soda. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. 

Roll out dough, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch gingerbread boy cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto large ungreased cookie sheets. Add decorations for eyes, mouth and buttons as desired; press slightly into dough. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire cooling rack. Cool completely. Pipe edge of each cookie with white decorator icing, if desired.

Recipe Tip

If dough is sticky, refrigerate for up to 2 hours before using.
