🍪 Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies Recipe-

🍪 Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies Recipe:-These gluten-free gingerbread men cookies are excellent for all of your Christmas cookie baking needs since they are soft, chewy, and perfectly spiced. You can use them at any time of the year. I really like how simple it is to put them together!
Furthermore, who could possibly be unable to resist the aroma of warm cinnamon, ginger, and brown sugar that is floating throughout the kitchen? Additionally, as an additional perk, you can even prepare this dough in advance and store it in the refrigerator so that you can deal with it at a later time.

🍪 Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies Recipe


  1. 1 ½ cups(210 g) all purpose gluten free flour blend (I used Better Batter)
  2. ¾ teaspoonxanthan gum omit if your blend already contains it
  3. ½ teaspoonbaking soda
  4. 1 ½ teaspoonsground cinnamon
  5. 1 teaspoonground ginger
  6. ¼ teaspoonkosher salt
  7. ½ cup(109 g) packed light brown sugar
  8. 6 tablespoons(84 g) unsalted butter at room temperature
  9. 4 tablespoons(84 g) unsulphured molasses
  10. 1 tablespoon(21 g) honey
  11. 1(50 g (weighed out of shell)) egg at room temperature, beaten
  12. ½ teaspoonpure vanilla extract
  13. Royal Icing for decorating (optional)



  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the parchment paper that has not been bleached from the baking sheets that have rims and set them aside.
  • Mix the flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt together in a large basin using a whisk to ensure that everything is thoroughly combined.
  • Once again, whisk the mixture to integrate the brown sugar and break up any lumps that may have formed.


  • A well should be made in the middle of the dry ingredients, and then the butter, molasses, honey, egg, and vanilla should be added to the well. A thorough mixing should be done after each addition. You can expect the dough to be thick and sticky.
  • The dough should be transferred to a wide sheet of unbleached parchment paper, covered with another sheet of parchment, and then rolled out into a rectangle with a thickness of around 3/8 inches (greater than 1/4 inch, less than 1/2 inch per inch).
  • Place the dough in the refrigerator or freezer after you have rolled it out to allow it to firm up. This is something you should do if you are afraid that the dough will be tough to manage.


  • A gingerbread man cutter should be dipped in all-purpose gluten-free flour or cornstarch before being used to cut out forms from the cookie dough. The top layer of parchment paper should be pulled back and then used to cut out shapes.
  • In order to produce a tidy form, you should jiggle the cutter back and forth through each cut.
  • Put the dough on a surface that is flat and portable, such as a cutting board, and place it in the freezer until it becomes hard, which should take around ten minutes.
  • After the dough has been allowed to chill, remove the remaining dough from the area around the cut-outs and take the scraps that are left over. After that, carefully peel off the shapes that you cut out and set them on the baking sheets that you have prepared spaced approximately 1 1/2 inches apart.


  • It is necessary to repeat the process with the remaining dough until all of it has been utilized.
  • The cut-outs should be placed on the baking sheets and placed in the refrigerator or freezer until they become hard.
  • This should take approximately twenty minutes in the refrigerator and only five minutes in the freezer. Because of this, they will be able to maintain their shape when baking.
  • After placing the pan in the middle of the oven that has been warmed, bake it for around eight minutes, or until it is almost completely set. After taking the baked goods out of the oven, allow them to cool completely on the baking sheets.
  • If you so want, sprinkle royal icing on top of the cookies once they have completely cooled. Before stacking the cookies, you need wait twenty-four hours for the icing to harden.

Tips for making the best gluten free gingerbread cookies:

  1. If you want to avoid using an excessive amount of your gluten-free flour blend, it is best to measure it out by weight rather than volume.
  2. Should you find that your gluten-free gingerbread cookie dough is challenging to work with and sticky, do not be afraid to chill it as frequently as you require.
  3. In order to avoid your cookies being overheated or taking longer to bake, it is important to ensure that the dough for your gluten-free gingerbread cookies is rolled out to the appropriate thickness.
  4. If you want your gingerbread man cookies to be chewy and soft, you should make sure to set a timer so that you don’t wind up with one that is more crunchy than the other.
  5. In order to prevent your gluten-free gingerbread men from crumbling, you should wait until they have completely cooled down before touching them or icing them.
