    Gingerbread Cookies #2 (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    This recipe comes to us from Kathryn Przywara.

    ¾ cup margarine
    ¼ cup dark molasses
    1 cup light brown sugar
    3 cup gluten-free flour mix*
    1 teaspoon xanthan gum
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 Tablespoon baking powder
    2 teaspoon ground ginger
    ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
    ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ½ cup water
    Sweet rice flour for rolling

    Cream margarine and sugar. Beat in molasses. Sift dry ingredients into separate bowl. Stir into creamed mixture alternately with water. Mix thoroughly once everything has been added. Dough should be soft and will be sticky. Refrigerate dough for at least one hour. Using sweet rice flour, roll portions of dough on plastic wrap or parchment paper to about ¼. Cut and decorate as desired. Bake in 350F oven for 8-20 minutes depending on size. Cookies should just be getting browned. Bake longer for crispier cookies. Cool slightly on sheet before removing to rack to cool completely. Store in airtight containers.

    This recipe was just what we needed for making a gingerbread house for my nieces. It needed to be gluten, egg, dairy and soy free, and this recipe did it. A few tips we learned along the way: Add extra flour before refrigerating, we added half about half a cup. The dough is too soft to roll, so refrigerate for 24 hours to make it easier to handle, and use lots and lots of rice flour when rolling out. Two batches made an average size house and half a dozen gingerbread men. For solid big house pieces, bake a long time (we did 24 minutes) and check for air bubbles after 8-10 minutes. Bake the small gingerbread cookies for the shorter time for a chewy cookie. This is a tasty, not-to-sweet recipe that turned out great! My nieces had a blast decorating and eating with this one!
