In keeping with a holiday theme, I have been eating and cooking with ginger as much as possible. A few weeks ago, I saw this post about a too good to be true gluten free gingerbread cookie mix that you could actually roll out. I had retired my cookie cutters since I started baking gluten free cookies, but I knew I had to give these a try.Mona’s mix worked splendidly. Her directions advise you to roll out small sections of cold dough while keeping the rest of the dough in the fridge. I found this to be imperative. As the dough warmed, it became more and more difficult to transfer the cookies to the parchment lined cookie sheets.
I highly recommend this mix. As my picky gluten eating Mom tasted these she said “Wow, you would never know they were gluten free.” That’s high praise from someone who could happily exist on just pastries and cookies. And for those of you that miss rolling out cookies and using fun cookie cutter shapes, you will be happy before you ever eat a gluten free gingerbread man.
Happy (gluten free) Holidays!
