“This is the best gingerbread recipe I've ever had. My brothers, who aren't much for sweet things, took more than their share at Christmas. My husband and family loved them. The secret ingredient makes these so moist and fluffy, you'll never turn back.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat butter, sugar, dry pudding mix, and egg in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients. Gradually add to pudding mixture, beating well after each addition; cover. Refrigerate 1 hour or until dough is firm.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness.
  4. Cut into gingerbread shapes. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Use a straw to make a hole near the tope of each cookie for hanging.
