Yes, it is possible to make gluten free gingerbread cookies using cookie cutters!
I really wanted to continue the Christmas tradition of making cookies with cookie cutters. I grew up making gingerbread men and other shapes with my grandmother and cousins every year.
How are you supposed to use cookie cutters with no gluten?! It's so frustrating to have a sticky dough that won't tolerate being moved from the rolling out board to the cookie sheet.
And who wants to spend all day digging out and measuring over a dozen ingredients? I tried several recipes and living a life of making everything from scratch gets old after awhile, especially when you're dealing with some fatigue issues.
If you need gluten free gingerbread cookies that are also egg-free and diary-free, you're really going to love this recipe.
I don't mind using a mix from a box when it uses quality ingredients. I am happy to support good companies, and devote more time to the cookie cutters and decorating.
The techniques in this recipe are very child friendly and fun to make. We loved using the spatula to practice flipping!

You can use melted butter instead of the coconut oil if you don't need the recipe to be dairy-free.
I find these store ok at room temperature for a couple of days.
But like all good cookies, you might not have to worry about storing them too long. Remember a box only makes one sheet of gluten free gingerbread cookies, so you might want to stock up so you don't run out. I like to buy them in bulk.
