Gingerbread People

Joe tested and approved.

3/4 cup softened butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 pkg (4 oz) butterscotch instant pudding mix
1 egg
2-1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp ground ginger
1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Beat butter, sugar, pudding mix and egg in large bowl. Combine remaining ingredients, except pudding mix. Gradually add pudding, beating well after each addition. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until dough is firm.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4" thick. Cut into gingerbread shapes. Place on greased baking sheets. Use a straw to make a hole near top of each cookie for hanging if desired.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from baking sheets and cool on wire racks. Decorate as desired.
