Nicole Richie Shares Her Gluten-Free Gingerbread Cookie Recipe
We can all thank our favorite sarcastic and hilarious Vixen Nicole Richie for allowing us to indulge over the holidays without the guilt! As a design and cooking guru (oh and did we mention a mother of two?), Nicole is sure to have company over at all times during the holiday season. “On any given night, Joel will bring home some rapper to have family dinner with us,” she says of husband Joel Madden. The designer/socialite just launched a holiday collection with Joss & Main that includes classic white dinnerware, pillar candles, spunky glasses splashed with Moroccan-style prints and miniature mercury glass trees with antique white finishes. The best part of her new collection is that you can mix and match almost anything and still have an classic and elegant feel to your dinner table.

Nicole Richie’s Gluten-Free Gingerbread Cookies
2½ cups gluten-free baking flour
1½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup molasses
½ cup solid shortening
1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon. Set aside.
2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine molasses and shortening and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
3. Stir the dry ingredients into the cooled molasses/shortening mixture until a thick dough forms. Cover and refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 2 hours.
4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Turn out dough onto a well-floured surface, roll to about ¼-inch thick and cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Place on cookie sheet and bake for about 8 minutes, or slightly less if you like your gingerbread soft.
