I love molasses cookies and found a perfectly wonderful way to have them gluten free, The Gluten-Free Pantry Spice Cake and Gingerbread Mix!
I think I added egg, shortening, a bit of ground ginger, and a few tablespoons of molasses. The balls of stiff dough are rolled in granulated sugar and baked on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. They turn out so much like the cookies Mom used to make that I have to hide them from myself! Good thing the store was all out of mixes on my last shopping trip... Now I am down to my very last cookie. Guess it's time to start that long awaited diet.
PS. It appears this particular mix has been discontinued by the manufacturer. Now that is really, really disappointing!
