Gingerbread cookies

This week I finally got to make my favorite Christmas cookies; gingerbread people! I have included the recipe below.

Gingerbread recipe


1/2 c. salted butter (softened)

1/2 c. molasses

2  egg whites

1 c. tapioca flour

1 c.  coconut flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1 Tbsp. ground ginger

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. cloves


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl until well mixed.

Let the dough sit for 20 minutes at room temperature before rolling out.

Roll out dough on parchment paper to 1/4 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters, and remove excess dough. Repeat the process until dough is all used up.

Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. Remove cookies from the pan onto a rack, let cool completely before adding frosting.

Frosting recipe;

1/2 c. butter, softened

1/2 c. sugar (I used xyla)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine ingredients and mix with a standing mixer until smooth.

Spread onto cookies or use a piping bag to decorate cookies with.

  1. We took the kids to the reindeer farm in Clare over Thanksgiving, and for the first time ever my kids say on Santa’s lap. Hannah apparently is a believer despite the fact we don’t talk much about Santa. Anyway, Santa told them to leave out cookies for Rudolf so that his nose would be plenty bright. Thus, Beth insisted we make 12 gingerbread reindeer when we did our cookie baking. One to leave out for each reindeer Christmas Eve. They are baked & in the freezer. We’ve never put out cookies. Should they all disappear or just a few?
