Almond GingerBread Men

Gluten-free Gingerbread Cookies

Preheat oven to 350F


Mix almond flour with all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, stirring and beating well to mix.

Divide the batter in half and wrap in plastic wrap. Place the wrapped dough in the freezer for at least an hour

When ready to work with the dough, remove one of the plastic wrapped lumps of dough. Place on a sheet of wax paper. Cover the dough with another piece of wax paper, and use a rolling pin to roll out dough to about 1/4 or 1/2". Use a cookie cutter, or the round top of a small spice jar to cut out the shapes. Use a spatula to move your "men" to a slightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes, depending on how chubby your men are. When I made these, I ended up shaping many of them with my fingertips as the dough softened to room temperature.. they all came out great!

Baking instructions: Bake at 350F on a slightly greased cookie sheet for 12-15 minutes, then cool on cookie rack.

Decorate with raisin bits, colored candies, and confectioners's sugar frosting

"Safe" Confectioner Sugar Frosting

Place sugar and tapioca starch (flour) in your blender, though a food processor works better, and faster. Grind for at least 3 minutes until sugar does not feel grainy any longer, but has been reduced to powder.

Add lemon juice and coconut milk until the powdered sugar is a good consistensy to spread on cookies. Allow the icing to dry on the cookies, then store in airtight containers
