Pretty good. I liked the taste.
I followed this recipe to a "t", refrigerated the dough for over an hour but when I rolled it out on a more than "lightly" floured surface, I could not get the cutouts to lift off for anything. Started over adding more flour before rolling out and no better, even tried freezing the dough for bit.... very frustrating! Ended up just throwing the whole thing away... too bad because they sounded so good!!!
These are great and you can always find cook and serve pudding on Amazon.com.
I just KNOW that I'd love these, but cook-and-serve puddings are almost extinct where I live. Our main grocery store is Safeway, and I don't think ours has ANY of the cooked varieties. Anyone have tips on other sources for the pudding? - Linda in Silicon Valley
My daughter chose this as her first try at cutout cookies and a first attempt at gingerbread for us both. The dough was easy to work with, easy to cutout and kept a pretty good shape when baking. They taste very good and most important, they stay nice and soft!! Friends enjoyed them too. They made next year's list for our Christmas cookie bake-a-thon!
