Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 pkg. (4-serving size) butterscotch instant pudding mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 2/3 cup green decorating icing
  • 2 Tbsp. red decorating gel
  • 2 pkg.  (64 g each) Maynards Mini Fruit Gums

Instructions

  • Beat  butter, sugar and dry pudding mix in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Blend in eggs. Mix next 5 ingredients. Gradually add to pudding mixture, beating well after each addition. Refrigerate 15 min.
  • Heat  oven to 350°F. Place dough between 2 sheets of parchment or waxed paper; roll to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into circles with 3-inch cookie cutter, rolling dough scraps as necessary. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake  10 to 12 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand on baking sheets 3 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely. Decorate with remaining ingredients.

Recipe Tips

Fun IdeaTo make these cookies into holiday decorations, use a straw to make hole near top of each unbaked cookie. Bake as directed. Cool cookies, then decorate and thread a ribbon through the hole in each cookie to use for hanging.

Family FunTry cutting the Maynards Mini Fruit Gums into pieces to make lots of little multi-coloured decorations that can be sprinkled over the icing. You can also use Maynards Swedish Berries , or other Maynards Candies, cut into pieces.

Family FunPrepare using any shape of cookie cutter you like, such as gingerbread people, holly leaves, stars or teddy bears. (Note: Nutrition is for 3-inch cookies only.)
