  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg

Maple Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons maple-flavored syrup
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • Betty Crocker™ yellow sugar

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, stir together cookie mix, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Add butter and egg; mix until dough forms a ball.
  • 2
    On floured surface with rolling pin, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with assorted cookie cutters; place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 4
    In small bowl, beat powdered sugar and syrup with whisk until smooth. Gradually add water, a few drops at a time, beating until a thick glaze forms. Spread glaze over cooled cookies. Decorate with sanding sugars, sprinkles and chocolate chips.

  • Make whatever shapes match your theme. I chose turkeys and leaf shapes to match my table.
  • You can bake the cookies ahead of time and freeze them until you’re ready to decorate them.
