I have gotten some requests for my awesome gingerbread cookie recipe… and here is my secret: Krusteaz’s. I know it’s a box mix but it’s super easy and they turn out great everytime! I have tried other box mix gingerbread cookies and this one is by far the best. So, if you’re looking to bring something to a holiday gathering last minute, these are super easy and always a delight!
A box of Krusteaz’s Gingerbread mix
2 tablespoons of flour, plus more to coat your surface
2 tablespoons of butter
Icing to decorate if you want
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine gingerbread mix, 2 tablespoons flour, 2 tablespoons melted butter and 1/4 cup of very hot water.
If your mix is dry, add water one tablespoon at a time until fully mixed. This dough is a little dry in general so don’t fret.
Cover dough and let chill in the fridge for 30min.
Roll the dough out a handful at a time onto a floured surface. Use your cookie cutters!
Place the cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or spray the pan with non-stick spray.
Bake at 375 degrees for 6-10 minutes. Mine only took 7 min! So keep an eye on them.
Get your decorating supplies ready!
Let cookies cool before decorating.
Have fun decorating! Merry Christmas!
