    Molasses Spice Cookies (Gluten-Free)

    Lisa Clauset


    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    These are the perfect holiday cookie. They are soft on the inside with just enough crisp on the outside. Delicious with a cup of tea!

    Ingredients:
    2 ¼ cups gluten-free flour (optional: Bistro Blend All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour*)
    1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (combo of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and cardamom)
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    2 tsp baking soda
    ½ tsp xanthan gum
    3/4 cup butter, melted
    1 cup sugar, plus more for rolling or sprinkling
    1 egg
    1/3 cup molasses

    Directions:
    Mix gluten-free flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda and xanthan gum in a bowl, set aside.

    In a stand mixer, mix melted butter, sugar, egg and molasses for about 2 minutes or until well combined. Slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture until well combined.Remove dough from mixer, shape into a large ball and cover completely in parchment paper. Store in the refrigerator for 2 hours or more.

    When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F. Remove chilled dough from fridge, and scoop out dough 2 tablespoons at a time. Roll into balls and then roll the dough balls in a small bowl of sugar. Arrange on parchment lined baking sheet, leaving about 2 to 3 inches between each cookie.Bake at 350°F for 12 minutes. Let cool on a cooling rack.

    *The Bistro Blend is a blend of whole grain flours [eco-farmed brown rice flour, sorghum flour, tapioca starch, buckwheat flour, organic coconut flour, xanthan gum].

    Yum! The cookies turned out great!

    I used Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all purpose flour. They turned out flatter than the picture shows, but very yummy!

    These were delicious! However, I did decrease the baking soda to 1-1/2 tsp and add 1/2 tsp salt (even 1/4 tsp salt would probably do it). I used a flour mix of 2 cups superfine brown rice flour, 2/3 potato starch, and 2/3 cup tapioca starch. My cookies were also a little flatter than the picture, but I liked them that way. In my opinion these were just perfect - chewy and flavorful with a little crunch along the edges. These will definitely be made again in our household!

    These were so good. I changed to Bob Red Mill's all-purpose flour. Everyone ate them up fast. Excited to use them this Christmas.

    Turned out great. I used Maui Gold natural sugar to coat them. It is coarse sugar with a molasses flavor. I don't have celiac but my wife does but I'll share some with her.

    I live in Boulder, Colorado which is a town that is very educated about living gluten-free. I have a background in education and nutrition. Currently I work with a company called the Gluten Free Bistro that produces gluten-free pizza crusts, pasta and flour to restaurants. I also have a deep love for cooking and baking.

    In the celiac world, there remains a long-standing controversy over whether to exclude oats and oat products from the list of "safe" gluten-free grains.  When I was diagnosed with celiac disease, standard protocol recommended against including oats in a gluten-free diet, but more recent studies show that oats themselves are likely not the source of a celiac reaction.  Instead, ...

    Using a pre-made baking mix can often be hit or miss. Truly making them your own comes with the personal ingredients you add. Thick coconut shavings give these cookies phenomenal texture. The cranberries add a nice layer of sweetness that to try and have just one—even two—of these simple indulgences is near impossible.
