Quick and Easy Gingerbread Cookies Recipe

This is what I like to call a "cheater" recipe because it utilizes a boxed mix but it does save you a lot of time and effort. This is a great cheater recipe for those of you who are too busy to spend hours upon hours in your kitchen baking.

Quick and Easy Gingerbread Cookies Recipe

1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 box (any brand) Gingerbread Mix

In a large mixing bowl add the milk and vegetable oil to the ingredients from the boxed gingerbread mix. Stir the batter well, it will be thick! Cover the bowl and place into the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove bowl and roll out the gingerbread dough onto a lightly floured surface and cut out your cookies using a 2" round cookie cutter. (you can also just drop them onto a lightly greased cookie sheet by using a tablespoon and making drop cookies).

Bake your cookies in a preheated 350 degree oven for approximately 10 minutes. Remove and let them cool on a wire rack. The recipe will make about 34 cookies.
