Recipe by littleturtle

Great taste. This is an incredibly easy gingerbread recipe, made with butterscotch pudding. If you want to make these a little healthier you can use sugar-free pudding.

Love this recipe! Even double, it only makes about 4 dz, though. The dough seems hard and dry after it is chilled, but it will work up great. BTW - I only used a small box of pudding mix per batch (so 2 for a doubled recipe).
