These gingerbread cookies are full of flavor and perfect for eating plain or frosted!
  • 3½ c thai rice flour
  • 1½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 1¼ tsp ground allspice
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 cup butter
  • ¾ c sugar
  • ¾ c packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup molasses
  1. Stir rice flour, baking soda, salt, and spices together in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl cream butter and sugars.
  3. Add egg and molasses to butter/sugar mixture and mix until combined.
  4. Slowly add flour mixture and mix well. If it looks crumbly just mix it at the end by hand.
  5. Refrigerate dough for about an hour or leave overnight.
  6. Pre-heat oven to 350 F
  7. Remove dough from refrigerator and allow to sit out for a few minutes. If it still seems hard just break it up into smaller pieces and work it in your hands to warm it up just a bit.
  8. Take about ½ the dough and roll it out between 2 sheets of wax paper until ¼" - ½" thick. The thicker the dough, the more the cookies will puff up.
  9. Cut with cookie cutters and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.
  10. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until edges just start to turn slightly darker or until desired doneness. The longer they bake the crisper they'll be.
  11. Allow to cool before transferring them to a wire rack.
  12. Enjoy plain or frosted/iced with your favorite recipe (or store bought icing).
