Gingerbread Men
December 21, 2004

Delicious! The dough was so easy to work with, not sticky and rolled out wonderfully. (That in itself really sold me on this recipe as I tend to shy away from rolled dough recipes because they are time consuming and usually the dough is a hassle.) I did increase the cinnamon and ginger to taste and added cloves for a spicer cookie. I also used the instant pudding instead of the cook-and-serve and they turned out great. I did double the recipe and used half margarine and half butter. Baked 8-9 minutes instead of the 10-12 resulting in a softer chewier version of this classic. You definitely taste the butterscotch which I found to be a surprisingly pleasant alternative, and I liked the fact that it didn't use molasses. I cut-out various sizes of large, medium and small little buddies and decorated them with raisins and white piped icing and they came out adorable! Thanks for sharing Kim and this one is going in my family favorites cookbook~
