Soft & Chewy Gingerbread Cookies


Hi y'all!  Christmas is ONE week away!!!  Gingerbread cookies have always been a cookie that I could pass on.  Which is pretty incredible because I love almost every form of sugar.  This year I wanted to try one of my favorite cake mix cookie recipes using a gingerbread cake mix.  Now I am sure your are thinking, "there is a gingerbread cake mix?!"  Well, no there isn't.  I thought there would be one with all the holiday baking specials but I was wrong.  Then I spotted this...


My first thought was, that is LAME LESLIE.  Make cookies with a cookie mix...come on, you can do better!!!   But then I read the ingredients which were almost identical to a cake mix and decided to go for it. 

Soft and Chewy Gingerbread Cookies

Ingredients:

Betty Crocker Gingerbread Cookie Mix
2 Eggs
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
Powder Sugar

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.   
2.  First remove a 1/4 cup of cookie mix and dispose {cookie mix came with too much...mix :) }.  In a mixing bowl combine cake mix, eggs, and oil.  Mix on medium speed for about 30 seconds.  
3.  Using a 2 TBSP cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a plate with powder sugar.


4.  Roll dough in powder sugar and place on cookie sheet.  Bake for 7 - 10 minutes.


Now these are gingerbread cookies I can't say no to.  They go well with my eggs at breakfast... afternoon coffee...  and after dinner dessert... So if you make these I recommend you have people over to eat them! 


Are you doing any Christmas baking?  I still have {these} cinnamon rolls and a bundt cake to make.   :)

  1. Thank you for doing this. I am not affected, but it really heartens me to see people reaching out and supporting their fellow human beings in times like this. If I can be of any help, please let me know.
