Ingredients for gluten free ginger and cinnamon cookies:

- 1 egg
- 50 g cane honey

How to make gluten free ginger and cinnamon cookies
First, mix the flours, the cinnamon, the ginger and the salt.
In another bowl, and with our hands, mix the two sugars with the butter (cut into pieces) until they are mixed.
Next, add the honey, the egg, half of the mixture of flours and knead with your hands only until mixed; add all the flour and knead with the hands, the shortest possible time, until obtaining a homogeneous dough.
At this point, the heat of the hands may have melted the butter dough excessively (that’s why we should try to knead the shortest possible time), so don’t worry if you have a sticky dough. Make a ball with the cookie dough, wrap it in cling film and let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
After this time, stretch it with an adjustable roller until the desired thickness is reached (I recommend you to make it thiny to make them crisper). Cut it with a cookie cutter.
Place the cookies, separated from each other, in a baking sheet covered with baking paper and bake it 10 minutes in the oven preheated to 180 °C. Remember that the baking time can changes depending on the thickness and size of the cookies. We will know when cookies are ready when it have a beautiful golden tone.
Finally, let them cool on a grid before we can enjoy them.
Until to 2 weeks in a metal cookie case or in an airtight container.
