Testing Cookbook Recipes–Gingerbread Men

I need help. I am working on putting a gluten-free cookbook together as part of my graphic novel project, ASHES: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL. If you are able, please test the following recipe and comment your results. Did it work? Did the recipe make sense? Thank you!

Gingerbread Men

1 cup Namaste Gluten Free Perfect Flour Blend
1 cup Tapioca Starch
2 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground nutmeg
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
6 TBSP unsalted butter, melted
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
½ cup molasses
½ tsp vanilla extract

Combine flour, tapioca starch, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.

Combine butter and sugar. Beat until light and fluffy. Add molasses and vanilla. Mix.

Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Beat until a stiff dough forms.

Divide dough in half and wrap in plastic wrap. Press into a pancake shape.

Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm, up to 2 days.

Preheat oven to 350.

Lightly dust a piece of wax paper with tapioca starch. Roll dough to ¼ inch. Dip cookie cutters in tapioca starch and cut out cookies. Remove excess dough and re-roll until out of dough. Chill dough if needed.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until firm. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheets before transferring to racks to cool completely. Decorate with desired icing.
