Ingredients

COOKIES ::

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • ¾ cup organic pure cane sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups tapioca flour
  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp xanthan gum

FROSTING ::

  • ½ cup softened butter
  • 1 ½ cups organic pure cane POWDERED sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 TB whole milk or cream

Instructions

  • Cream the butter, molasses, and sugar with hand beaters.
  • Add the egg and beat through.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and combine – I start out with a spatula and finish it off with hand beaters to really get it all combined well.
  • Let the dough chill for an hour in the fridge – I split the dough up into 2 disks so it chills faster.
  • Knead the dough with your warm hands to make it pliable, roll out onto a rice floured surface, cut out your shapes, and place the shapes onto a silpat lined or parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

FOR THE FROSTING ::

  • Cream all of the frosting ingredients together until well combined. You can frost your cookies once they have cooled!
