What you need:
* 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter, softened * 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar * 1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Butterscotch Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling * 1 egg * 2 cups flour * 1 tsp. baking soda * 1 Tbsp. ground ginger * 1-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon * 1 Tbsp. water * 1 c. powdered sugar

Refrigerate 1 hour. 2. HEAT oven to 350°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness; cut into gingerbread shapes with 4-inch cookie cutter, rerolling trimmings as necessary. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray. 3. BAKE 10 to 12 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 3 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. 4.

Make it Easy: To easily decorate these cookies, fill a resealable plastic bag with prepared frosting. Seal the bag and cut a small corner off the bottom of the bag. Roll down the top of the bag to squeeze the frosting over the cookies to decorate as desired.
