We all LOVE holiday treats right! But when trying to be GMO free we often find that our treat selections are limited.
We are happy to have a new GMO Free Idaho member and contributing writer on our team, Dawn Burkhart, who is a non-GMO cooking MASTER! She will be sharing recipes, along with other non-GMO information, on our website to share with all of you!
She’s getting things started with this awesome, yummy Non-GMO Gingerbread Cookie recipe!
Here is what you will need!
1/2 cup Organic sugar
3 cups sifted Organic all-purpose flour
2 tsp non-GMO baking soda
1 tsp Sea Salt
2 tsp powdered ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp each powdered cloves and nutmeg
1 cup Organic butter
1/2 cup local honey
Organic Powdered Sugar
Organic Egg Nog or non-GMO Silk Nog
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Melt butter, sugar honey in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir in honey until smooth.
Sift the sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg together into a mixing bowl.
Add butter mixture to flour mixture. Refrigerate dough about 2 hours or until ball has hardened enough to be rolled out.
Roll the dough out about 1/8-inch thick on a floured board or between sheets of waxed paper. Cut it into the shapes of Gingerbread Men. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes on a cookie sheet. Remove from oven and, after a minute, from cookie sheet with a spatula to cool on cake racks.
For frosting, mix powered sugar and egg nog until smooth. Frost your little gingerbread men and ENJOY!
