Perfect Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies

There is nothing like soft, warm, gingerbread cookies. This is my favorite recipe. Not only is it gluten free, but I also provide Vegan options.

Ingredients

-3/4 cup of softened salted butter or for Vegan option replace with Vegan butter or coconut oil

-1/2 cup granulated sugar

-1/2 cup brown sugar

-1 large egg or for Vegan use a flax egg (2 Tbsp of ground flax, 1/4 cup of hot water)

-1/4 cup of molasses

-1 Tbsp of vanilla extract

-1 Tbsp of coffee

-2 1/4 cup of King Arthur Gluten free baking flour

– 1 tsp of salt

-1 tsp of baking soda

-2 tsp of ground ginger or 2-3 drops of ginger oil

-1 tsp of cinnamon

– 1/8 tsp allspice (optional)

– dash of nutmeg (optional)

-extra sugar for rolling

Optional: candied ginger or chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Cream together butter, sugars, and molasses. Add egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together remaining dry ingredients. Use a truffle scooper to form 2-3 inch balls. Roll in sugar and place 2 inches apart on silicone baking mat or baking stone. If using candied ginger, or chocolate chips, place one in the center and press down. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes. For thinner cookies, add in an extra T of butter to batter. For thicker, leave out.
