GFCF Gingersnap Recipe

This recipe is very yummy. I must have had a craving for cinnamon and ginger--autumn spices--because these hit the spot!

GFCF Gingersnap Cookie Recipe (You can't tell it's GFCF!)

¼ cup gfcf shortening

½ cup sugar

1/3 cup molasses

2 egg yolks

1 ¼ cups cornstarch

¾ cup potato starch

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ cup oil

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

½ teaspoon salt

1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

For Topping:

1 Tablespoon sugar

Preheat oven to 350*. In large bowl, cream together shortening, sugar and molasses. Add remaining ingredients, mixing well to remove all lumps.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Sprinkle well with sugar. Bake 8-9 minutes. Dough will be just set, with no wet spot in the middle. Do not overbake.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
