Ginger Creams Cookie Recipe

I LOVE Autumn! It conjures up many memories of growing up in the Midwest with the crisp cool days, breathtaking fall foliage, Ohio State Football and all the wonderful baking that my mom did. Whether it be apple pies from the apples we picked at Lynd’s Apple Farm or the following cookie recipe for Ginger Creams. This was the first time I tried to convert my mom’s recipe into a gluten free version. They turned out beyond remarkable! I cannot seem to keep these cookies in stock…I am on my third batch in a week. I am going to send these to Sam’s school tomorrow so I can get feedback from my toughest (but so cute) critics, 5 and 6 year olds! I love it when a child taste tests for me, as they have not yet been conditioned to say something nice if it is not true!

Ginger Creams

1/2 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Shortening
1 Egg

1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
1/2 tsp. Cloves

  • Blend in remaining ingredients.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees
