Gluten Free Ginger Cookies
- ¼ cup vegan butter, softened
- ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
- 2 to 3 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
- 2 tablespoons natural honey
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1-¼ cups gluten-free flour
- 2 teaspoons powdered ginger (or 1-¼ tablespoons fresh ginger, finely chopped)
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon all-spice
- ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, finely grated
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with baking or parchment paper. Set aside.
- Cream butter until soft and creamy, about 3 minutes. Gradually beat in light brown sugar, molasses and honey. Continue beating for another 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla, until full incorporated. Set aside.
- Combine together flour, powdered (or finely grated fresh) ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, all-spice, salt and nutmeg. Sift together twice to mix well. Gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture in two to three additions, blending well after adding each portion.
- Brush a mini ice cream scoop or fruit baller with melted butter (or lightly coat with cooking spray). Scoop cookie dough and drop onto prepared cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are set and centers are still chewy. Cookies will harden as they cool.
- Remove cookie sheet out of the oven and allow to cool on cookie sheet for 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer cookies onto wire racks and allow to cool to room temperature. Store leftovers on lidded jars or containers to maintain crispiness.
- Makes about 24 to 30 cookies.
- If you do not have a mini ice cream scoop or large melon baller, light coat hands with cooking spray. Take a small piece of dough between both hands and roll into a small ball, about 1-inch in diameter. Once all of the dough balls are formed, arrange about 2 inches apart from each other. Continue recipe directions as stated.
