The one cookie Kourtney Kardashian bakes every Christmas without fail? It's the gingersnap, of course. Kardashian just shared her treasured recipe on her app and website, calling it "a must this time of year." We have to agree — that heavenly, chewy ginger-molasses cookie tastes and smells like Christmas.
And because Kardashian's family is gluten- and dairy-sensitive, her recipe is gluten-free and vegan. With the right ingredients, we think this cookie should be every bit as delicious as the original.
We can recommend a couple of vegan butters. Earth Balance is the most popular, but there's also Miyoko's Kitchen (founder Miyoko Schinner's recipe for DIY vegan butter is a cult favorite), and Nutiva's buttery coconut oil. For that matter, if you like the taste of coconut, regular coconut oil would work as well in this recipe.
There are many gluten-free flours on the market. If you want to make your own blend, though, there's Minimalist Baker's recipe for gluten-free flour or America's Test Kitchen's gluten-free flour. Of course, for cookies, you don't need as much leavening as you would for cake or bread, so Angela Liddon of Oh She Glows often uses a blend of gluten-free oat flour with almond flour for cookies.
Yields 36 – 48 cookies
