Molasses Spice Cookies (Gluten-Free)


The finished holiday cookies.

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 GF 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.

A ha ha ha ha This article is so flip floppin I can't even begin to comment I.e. - you might be gluten intolerant but can eat some gluten !!!!????? may all potential people with real intolerances find their way here and not use this as their primary source of info on celiac, ...

Yes the crumpets are excellent. I have them quite often in the winter. Look and taste is excellent. They're probably not as chewy as the gluten ones but that's not really an issue as they are chewy in comparison to what I eat now.

Wow! Didn't realise that was a possibilty! I've had the little biscuits they make, they're really nice and the only danger is finishing the entire bag at a sitting! The weird thing is that I wasn't that fussed about panettones until I couldn't have them any more, now I really want one The Be...

If you are still worried you can also ask that the dry ingredients be mixed/poured outside (eg. on a deck, balcony etc.) and only be brought inside once combined with the wet ingredients. I believe someone else on the board once posted this as a suggestion, and I took it up to avoid roommate muti...

I am more stressed about what sales will be out on cyber Monday and black Friday then the actual thanksgiving holidays lol. Cooking is just cooking, I do it daily, just doing more and some special dishes. NOW once a year sales on products I use daily like supplements, spices, foods, flours, etc.....
