This easy recipe for gluten free ginger cookies make soft, chewy cookies. These cookies are the best if you like ginger and molasses. The crystalized ginger really gives these cookies a gingerbread flavor.



1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 large Eggs
2 Tbsp. Molasses
2 1/2 cups Gluten Free Flour
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp. Ground Cloves
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 cup Crystalized Ginger, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup Demenara Sugar


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer beat together the butter and brown sugar until they are light and fluffy. Then add the eggs and molasses. Beat until blended together.

In a separate bowl whisk together the gluten free flour, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Beat just until they are combined.

Add the chopped crystalized ginger and beat to combine into the dough.

The dough will be thick. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon scoop the dough and then roll in the demerara sugar. Place on the baking sheet and smash slightly with the palm of your hand.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. The cookies will be cracked on top, slightly firm to the touch and golden brown when done.
