Grab our Sweet Creations His & Hers Ugly Sweater Cookie Cutters and whip up a batch of this simple gingerbread. Ideal for cutting into shapes, because the dough maintains it’s shape, even after baking. So you’ll have ugly sweater cookies ready to decorate in just about 20 minutes.


  • 1 box spice cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted butter
  • 2-3 Tbsp flour (optional)


Heat oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, stir together cake mix, egg and butter.

If dough is sticky to the touch, add just enough flour to make it no longer sticky.

Turn dough out onto a piece of parchment. Cover with a second piece of parchment and roll to 1/4-1/2” thick.

Cut dough into desired shapes. Transfer to a nonstick baking sheet.

Bake for 9-12 minutes, or just until cookies are set.

Remove and cool. Decorating with icing or buttercream, as desired.
