Gluten free Molasses Crinkles

GF molasses crinkle


One of my favorite cookies is molasses crinkles. So I adapted the recipe:

Mix thoroughly:

3/4 cup soft shortening
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 egg
1/4 cup dark molasses

Sift together and stir in:

2 cups gluten free AP flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 cup tapioca flour
2 tsp xanthum gum
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger

Chill dough. Roll into balls the size of large walnuts. Dip tops in sugar and place on greased cookie sheet sugar-side up 3 inches apart. Sprinkle each cookie with a couple drops of water. This will create the crackled look.

Bake until just about set but not hard, 8-10 minutes in a 350F oven. Let cool on cookie sheet for a couple of minutes and then transfer to a rack to finish cooling.
