Gluten Free Gingersnaps (or Ice Cream Sandwiches)

Crispy and full of zing, these classic Gingersnaps live up to their name and they’re so simple to make. This recipe comes from our bakery and uses our Gluten Free All Purpose Flour. If that particular flour blend doesn’t appeal to you or your family, try this recipe for gluten free Crispy Ginger Cookies.

For a fun  holiday dessert, make these into ice cream sandwiches- simply place about 1/4 cup of softened vanilla ice cream (dairy or non-dairy will both work fine) between two gingersnaps and gently press. When ice cream has filled to the edge, roll the edge in festive sprinkles. Then wrap in plastic and freeze for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Enjoy!

I didn’t like this recipe at all. The beans in the flour totally overpowered the spices in the dough.
