Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies (Egg free too!)

These were easy and turned out quite well, despite the fact the only cookie cutters I found in our supply drawer were an ornament and a moose/reindeer. (It looks kind of, but not completely like either animal.) I looked at a regular recipe from, then changed it into gluten free and added a bit more spice. Here’s the finished recipe:
1/2 C. butter
3/4 C. molasses
2 T. sugar
1.5 C gf oat flour
.5 C brown rice flour plus extra for rolling the dough out
3/4 t. xantham gum
1 t. baking soda
3/4 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
3/4 t. ginger
1 individual sized applesauce (or less, but at least 1 T.)
3/4 t. vanilla
pinch of both cloves and nutmeg (more on the nutmeg, less on the cloves.)

Cream the butter, molasses, and sugar. Add the applesauce, then the dry ingredients. Let it sit in fridge for at least 2 hours, then roll out the dough on brown rice flour and cut into shapes. Bake at 350 (on parchment paper lined cookie sheets) for about 10 minutes.
