- ¾ cup (170g) dairy-free salted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- ½ cup (160g) fancy molasses
- 2 ½ cups (300g) gluten-free baking blend *
- 3 teaspoons ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground clove
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
- ½ teaspoon xanthan gum **
- optional: ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar for rolling
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF and prepare two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large mixing bowl with electric beaters, cream the butter and sugar together on high for 2 minutes or until light and fluffy.
- Add in the egg and molasses and mix again on high for another 2 minutes.
- Add in the remaining ingredients (except for the rolling sugar if using) and turn the mixer on low and allow to mix until a dough forms.
- With a 1½ tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the gingersnap cookie dough and roll each ball in the granulated sugar if desired.
- Place on the prepared cookie sheet approximately 2 inches apart from each other and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges are set and the center of the cookie appears to be slightly underbaked.
- Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to fully cool on the cookie sheets. Enjoy!
- Store leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
* Check to see if the gluten-free flour blend contains xanthan gum.
** Omit xanthan gum if your gluten-free flour blend already contains it or if you are using regular all-purpose flour.
