Delicious!! I don't usually like gingerbread but I loved these (and so did everyone else)! Make sure to chill the dough for at least an hour prior to cutting out the gingerbread people. (Dough will be a bit hard at first, but once it starts to warm up at room temp it will be the perfect consistency for rolling out and cutting). I'm definitely making these again next winter! 5 stars

I make these every year. I only have one recommendation. It calls for Brown Sugar. Use light brown sugar. Dark brown sugar gives the cookies an aftertaste that just borders on bitter. 5 stars

I loved this receipe.My kids don't like the plain sugar cookies, but they loved the taste of these.I used chocolate pudding mix, tasted great. Roll out in small sections, may stick to counter, use a flipper to make it easier to transfer to cookie sheet. 4 stars

To those who are disappointed in how these turned out, my recommendation would be to not melt the butter (1/2 cup butter, softened). To soften the stick of butter, remove from fridge and let sit on the counter for an hour before using in the recipe. If you melt it in the microwave your dough will surely be sticky.

These were excellent

Good luck!

To Angry Baker & Heather, Do not prepare the pudding mix. You add the dry mix to the butter and brown sugar. 'Cook and serve' refers to the kind of pudding mix to use. In other words don't use the instant pudding mix but the kind you would have to cook. 5 stars

I agree with you "Angry Baker" !!! I am on the same boat as you right now! My dough is so gooey that I can't even roll out the dough to make gingerbread men which was my whole point :-/ Now I guess I'll just have to make boring round cookies and just drop the dough on the pan. BORING! 1 star

I was pumped to make these and eat them, sadly the instructions on the amount of pudding to use was lacking. And now I have a sticky gob of goo with 3 cups flour in it with no end in sight. Here's to rolling goo! WOOO 1 star

Excellent Recipe. I have made this recipe every year for Christmas since I found it in a woman's magazine in the '70's. My children loved them and now my grandchildren love them. I also use extra spices for more punch. 5 stars
