Gingerbread Cookies?

Does anyone have a recipe for gingerbread cookies? I thought I had found one, but I must not have printed it out and now I can't find it again. I don't think think it was on this site.

You can definitely try it with the other flour mix, but I haven't tried it personally. My recipe is a modification of a Bette Hagman recipe. Let me know if it works out.

Thanks Coleen. Can I make this using my regular flour mix (I use the one from Annalise Roberts), or does it need to be this flour mix specifically?

Annalise Roberts has a fantastic gingerbready-tasting molasses cookie recipe. Or maybe she even calls it gingerbread cookies? It's in her cookbook--do you have it?

I love her book. I actually emailed her to find out if she had a gingerbread cookie recipe and she said she has had several requests for this and was maybe going to work on it.

Actually one of the big reasons I want to make the gingerbread cookies is because one of my brother in laws requested I make the coconut cake (from her book ofcourse) for Christmas. It's always a hit so I figure why not; but it's not very Christmasy so I thought I'd make the cookies also. I bought a ton of fun holiday cookie cutters :)

Please excuse me if I'm wrong, but do you have Mission in the Kitchen?

I do! And I kept meaning to check it to see if it had a recipe for GB cookies, but would always remember at times like this when I'm at work and can't check and I forget by the time I get home. Something tells me there is a recipe in there ;)

I use this recipe - modified from Betty Crocker. You can cut it in half pretty easily.

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup Spectrum Shortening

1 1/2 cups dark molasses

2/3 cup cold water

7 C gluten-free flour mix (Annaleise Roberts mix + xanthan gum would work great)

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon ground allspice

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon salt

1. In large bowl, stir together brown sugar, shortening, molasses and water. Stir in remaining cookie ingredients. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

2. Heat oven to 350

Here's the recipe I use. It was originally a gluten flour recipe, which I used for rolling out. It makes thick soft cookies. Here's my adaptation, but I haven't tried rolling it out, just make drop cookies.

Molasses Cookies

Ingredients:

1 C shortening

1 C sugar

1 C molasses

3 beaten eggs

1 C sour milk (I use rice milk with 1 T vinegar in it)

1 T (heaping) soda

3/4 tsp xanthan gum

Spices to suit: 2 tsp ginger, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cloves

Gluten free Flour to about 5 1/2 C to make a soft dough. ( I use Bette Haagman's original recipe with rice flour, potato starch, and tapioca starch)

1/2-1 C raisins (optional)

Instructions:

Mix. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased pans.

Bake in moderate oven until just done, 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

This tastes great, I can't tell the difference with my original recipe. If too crumbly, you can increase the xanthan gum.
