Gingerbread Crinkles

Gingerbread Crinkles

1 pkg. Gingerbread Cake Mix
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
1 large egg
1 to 2 tablespoons hot water

Stir the mix with the softened butter until even crumbs form. Add the egg and 1 tablespoon hot water. Knead until the dough comes together (dough will be a bit sticky), adding the final tablespoon of water if necessary. Divide the dough in half, wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour (or up to 3 days). Roll the dough into 2” balls. Dip tops in sugar, place on the prepared baking sheet, and flatten slightly. Bake the cookies in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 12 to 14 minutes; they will be slightly soft when done. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes; transfer to a rack to finish cooling.

  1. I swear as I was reading this post, I got a whiff of gingerbread in my nose. I must be losing it or really tired..either that or those are some really good cookies...They look absolutely delicious and to be honest, I am not usually really much of a cookie person. Nice job
