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

Eggnog Frosting:

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!
