Gluten-free Molasses Sugar Cookies

Gluten-free Ginger Molasses Cookies

Recipe by: Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

My family loves cookies I mean all different varieties of cookies. This recipe goes way back in the family and has been around for generations and generations. I have no idea where this recipe actually started but one thing I know is that my husband's grandmother gave this recipe to me and I have been making these cookies for my family for a long time. Now that we are a gluten free family I have made modifications to this recipe to suit our gluten free needs. I appreciate recipes that go way back and am grateful that we can still have these delicious recipes once again being gluten free.

Prep time: PT15M
Cook time: PT11M
Total time: PT3H21M

  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 1-1/2 Cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Mild Molasses
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 4-1/4 Cups All Purpose Gluten-free Flour 
Cooking Directions
  1. In a stand mixer add sugar and eggs.
  2. Cream mixture until it becomes a very pale yellow.
  3. Once mixture is a pale yellow add vegetable oil and molasses.
  4. Slowly add baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and sea salt.
  5. Scrape the sides of the bowl and slowly add gluten free flour one cup at a time.
  6. Place mixture in the refrigerator for at least three hours.
  7. Once refrigeration is completed take mixture out of the refrigerator and using a small cookie scoop scoop dough into balls and roll in granulated sugar and coat evenly.
  8. Place cookies on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat to prevent sticking.
  9. Bake cookies at 350 for 11 minutes.
  10. The cookies will look like they are not quite done, I under bake just a hair to ensure the soft center and crunchy outside, if you prefer a crispier cookie than bake for a couple minutes longer.
