Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies

‘Tis the Season for Holiday Baking. This time of year I love baking cookies. Gingerbread cookies are always at the top of the baking list. Christmas isn’t Christmas without Gingerbread cookies. Enjoy this easy to make and oh so delicious recipe. Your family and friends will eat them as quick as you make them. GFM Tip: I don’t have the patience for decorating these with faces and cute outfits like my mother in law so diligently does each year. So I cheat by sprinkling with coarse decorative sugar. They come in several holiday colors made by Wilton. They still look fabulous after baking and taste great too! Did I mention they make your house smell scrumptious too?
