Gluten Free Gingersnaps

Thursday, October 27, 2011

While I didnt initially love these (and think they need some work), Bobby and Maya disagree!!  They are still chanting cookie!  Slightly crumbly and delicately soft, they are lightly sweetened pieces of heaven with a cup of coffee or tea.  And, weighing in at only 90 calories each, you can happily indulge (and allow the youngest taste testers in your kitchen do so as well!)

Gluten Free Gingersnaps

Mix in a bowl and set aside:
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp Ginger, ground
1 tsp Cinnamon, ground
1/8 tsp Cloves, ground
1 3/3 cup GF flour mixture (I make my own but you can find them commercially available)


In a large mixing bowl (or the bowl of your electric mixer), mix until fluffy:
54 grams (or 6 tablespoons) whipped butter
4oz apple sauce (snack cup size)
1/4c Brown Sugar

Add and mix well:
1 large egg
1/4 cup brown rice syrup
2 tbsp lemon juice.

Add your dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

Make 20 balls of dough and press flat in a bowl of granulated sugar (5tbsp should do the trick). 
Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 for 9 minutes. 
Cool on baking sheet for 1 minute, then move to cooling area.
