Molasses Cookies

Recommended Posts

Here's the recipe I use for molasses cookies. It was originally a gluten flour recipe and I rolled it out to make soft thick cookies. I haven't tried to roll it out with gluten-free flour, but we make drop cookies with raisins in them, and they would be great to frost and decorate.

1 C shortening

1 C sugar

1 C molasses

3 beaten eggs

1 C sour milk (milk with a Tbs of vinegar in it; I substitute rice milk with vinegar for casein free)

1 T (heaping) soda

3/4 tsp xanthan gum

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

5 1/2 C gluten-free four (I use Bette Hagman's original formula with rice flour, potato starch and tapioca starch)

1/2 -1 C raisins (optional)

Mix, drop by spoonfuls on greased pan. Bake in moderate oven until just done, 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

These are really good, and other people can't tell that they are gluten-free.


4/2007 Positive IGA, TTG Enterolab results, with severe malabsorption: Two DQ2 celiac genes--highest possible risk.

gluten-free since 4/22/07; SF since 7/07; 3/08 & 7/08 high sugar levels in stool (i.e. cannot break down carbs) digestive enzymes for carbs didn't help; 7/18/08 started SCD as prescribed by my physician (MD).
