Gluten-Free Ginger Snap Cookies

by | Updated: October 13th, 2020

Ginger snaps should literally snap. That’s not easy to accomplish when you’re baking without gluten. Often, cookies end up too chewy, too dry or – worse – too rubbery. But when it comes to texture, ginger snaps have high standards. By using a few less wet ingredients than traditional recipes, this gluten-free, no-molasses-needed version forms the perfect balance of spicy on your taste buds, crispy on the outside and a smidge chewy on the inside.

1 egg white
