  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, cocoa and spices. Set aside.
  2. With a hand blender or stand mixer with the paddle attachment combine the sugar and butter till fully combined (1-2 minutes). Minimal creaming will help the cookies keep their shape when baking. Add the molasses and milk and beat until fully combined.
  3. Add the flour mix and mix until fully combined.
  4. Press into a disc, wrap, and refrigerate for at least one hour until thoroughly chilled. Colder dough will be easier to roll and cut.
  5. Preheat the oven to 325˚F.
  6. Roll the dough out to ¼" thickness, cut desired shapes and transfer to a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  7. Cool on pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  8. Decorate and enjoy!
