Molasses Ginger Cookies are thick and chewy unlike a ginger snap and they are loved by many. There’s a lot of science in cookie making and everyone’s idea of the perfect cookie is different. Add to that the different gluten free flours available and your cookie will probably turn out differently than mine. So if you’re looking for your perfect cookie pay attention to what you did and the flour mix you used. That’s what you need to do to find your perfect version of gluten free Molasses Ginger Cookies.

Whether you chose a homemade flour mix or a store bought one your cookies are going to be different if you use a different flour combination. Sometimes that make little difference yet other times it can be the difference between success and failure. It’s good to know that before you start. Keep track of what works and try to learn from those recipes that didn’t work out as well as you hoped.
You don’t need anything fancy to bake cookies but you do need a few tools.
-Power tools are ideal for making cookies. For my baking classes I pull out my trusty Cuisinart Food processor, my decades old Sunbeam stand mixer plus my Kitchen Aid and let people use whatever they like.
