Lots of good alternative gingerbread recipes out there, but the story opportunity was too good to pass up, so I made my own! Easy peasy and this works for a gingerbread house as well (stay tuned for follow-up post). I like a lot of ginger flavor but feel free to reduce/adjust ground ginger if desired.
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine dry ingredients (first 9), whisking until well-mixed.
  3. Add wet ingredients (last 5, in order) and mix well. You should have a dark, pliable dough that is not too sticky or too dry.
  4. Roll out on a (tapioca/arrowroot-) floured piece of parchment paper. Cut out gingerbread shapes as desired.
  5. Place shapes on parchment-lined baking tray. Bake for ~12 minutes, until slightly browned and firm in the middle.
  6. While baking, prepare/mix glaze ingredients.
  7. Once cookies have cooled, decorate at will! Give buttons! Make pants! Go nuts, basically.
