My family and friends know me well. They gave me the best baking-related gifts this Christmas! I'm so excited about my new cookbooks that I'm already having fun sharing lessons from!
The first recipe in American Cake was for "American Gingerbread." Instead of a cookie dough, this recipe was for a gingerbread flavored, light and fluffy cake. And it was delicious!
But this recipe also reminded me of a past favorite ginger cookie recipe. And since I was going to be ringing in the New Year with friends, I decided to make these as a portable, easy treat. One of the friends that I would be hanging out with is gluten-free and dairy-free, so I decided to try this recipe GF/DF. And it worked! They were a hit with GF and non-GF eaters alike.
