Ginger Spice Cookies

The smell of gingerbread wafting from the kitchen makes every day feel like Christmas. And best of all, these sweet spice cookies are gluten and lactose free!



  1. Pre-heat your oven to 325° F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the shortening and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and molasses and beat until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the GF flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture in spoonfuls, beating well after each addition and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Roll dough into small 1 oz balls, roll them in sugar and space them out on a parchment covered bake sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies appear crackled on top.
  5. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool and sprinkle with extra sugar.
  6. Try not to open the oven while these cookies are baking as they do fall once removed from heat. Also, if you\'re looking for a quick, home-made gift your friends and family will enjoy, these cookies look great stacked and tied with a bit of ribbon and personalized gift tags!
