Ingredients

    1/2 c coconut oil
    1/2 c granulated sugar
    4 tblspn brown sugar
    4 tblspn molasses
    4 tblspn orange marmalade
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    2 c gluten-free cookie flour mix
    1/2 tsp xanthan gum

    1/4 tsp salt
    2 tsps ground ginger
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two cookie sheets. Beat shortening and granulated sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and fluffy. Add brown sugar, molasses, orange marmalade and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly. In a separate bowl mix together gluten-free flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt and spices. Add flour mixture to shortening mixture and beat on low speed to combine. Using your hands, roll uniform-size pieces of dough (about 2 tsp) into balls. Roll in sugar and bake. Smaller balls yield smaller cookies. Once cookies are completely cooled dip in white chocolate. Melt white chocolate chips with 2 tblspn oil in saucepan or microwave.
