How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
  • Mix together flour blend, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, xanthan gum and salt. Set aside.
  • In separate bowl, mix butter, molasses and sugar together. Beat in egg.
  • Slowly stir in dry ingredients. Dough will be sticky. Refrigerate for several hours.
  • Divide dough into three equal parts. Roll into logs between 1/2 to 2-inches thick, depending on the size of your cookies.
  • Cut logs in slices about ¼ to 1/3-inch thick. Press both sides of each slice in sugar. Place on prepared cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches between each cookie.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely and transfer to a rack. Store cookies in an airtight container.
  • TIP If dough is too sticky to shape into a log, place each portion of dough onto a piece of plastic wrap and roll it up. Refrigerate until dough is stiff enough to slice.

    These were excellent! I lowered the sugar to 3/4 cup and used coconut sugar. My flour blend was oat, tapioca and almond. I'll definitely be saving this recipe. Thanks!

    thank you for letting me know how these turned out....

    I like your change of using brown sugar rather than the white sugar....some the best changes come from a ''mistake''

    a stick of butter is 1/2 cup ... I will put that in the recipe...
    thank you again...

    This was a hit even though I made mistakes with measurements and used brown sugar instead of white. We have a clay baking pan so no need to grease the sheet. (How much is 1 stick of butter? I guessed it might be about 2/3 cup of margarine. ) I want to make these again. PLUS, I made the suggested flour blend -- Much thanks!
