I made these for the kids after school this week and they were a big hit. I chose to decorate them simply with just a dusting of white sparkling sugar. They were very easy to make I only made one small change.
Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies
1/2 cup of butter softened
1/2 cup of brown sugar
3/4 oz. package of cook and serve butterscotch pudding
1 egg beaten
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. of baking soda
1 1/2 tsp of ground ginger *see note
1 tsp of cinnamon
Blend together butter, brown sugar and pudding mix; add egg. Mix in remaining ingredients. Chill for 30 minutes. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface; cut with cookie cutters as desired. Arrange on greased baking sheets and bake for 8 - 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes one dozen.
** I decreased my ginger so it would be a little less gingery, not everyone likes gingerbread and I think these are a nice alternative.
