Gluten-Free Gingersnap Cookie Recipe

That´s a very special post for me,i really think how important is to combine food with sport,and also I like healthy food,and we have kids with different problems,celiacs,alergics,etc..
Here we are going to cook some great cookies,but the difference is that we are going to teach them that there are some kids that have to be careful with some ingredients,so let´s do it without gluten!!!!
They are so so yummy aswell,and we can decorate them also with yummy things!!!!
I´ve got the recipe from a great blog i really like find it here

Here we will work how important is the tolerance,they have to grow up knowing that we have to be tolerant with the other,and we have to respect everybody.

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature OR dairy-free Spectrum organic vegetable shortening at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown cane sugar, pressed firmly into measuring cup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup unsulphured molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup / 127 grams / 4.5 ounces garbanzo bean flour (Bob's Red Mill brand used in this recipe)
  • 1 cup / 140 grams / 4.9 ounces sweet sorghum flour (Authentic Foods brand used in this recipe)
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup granulated cane sugar to roll dough ball in prior to baking
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl use an electric mixer or stand mixer to cream butter and sugar. Add egg, molasses and vanilla and beat until combined.
In a separate bowl, mix flours, spices, salt, baking powder and soda. Whisk to thoroughly blend. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until combined and smooth. The batter will be thick.
Cover bowl and chill cookie dough in refrigerator for about 1 hour. Or place dough in an airtight container and refrigerator for several days.

Hope you like the recipe!!!!

    1. How tasty is your blog!!! I think it is really interesting to create a Christmas activity in which the protagonist is food!! I also believe that sport is really important to take care of our body but I would have created a more personal recipe. In other words, I think in spite of using a lot of pictures, it would have been interesting to watch a video to observe step by step the recipe because children will be more interested in the video than in reading such a long recipe. Moreover, I don´t understand what the students have to do apart from reading the recipe. For this reason, although writing and pictures are outstanding, in my opinion, it would be necessary to modify the recipe to create a funnier activity with vokies, videos, songs, experiences... For instance, I was thinking in uploading a video about how to make Christmas biscuits and later, you can ask for children the ingredients and steps they have to follow to bake biscuits. Thanks a lot and good luck!!!
