To make gluten-free gingerbread dough, you need a good substitute for gluten, which gives the dough its stretchy quality so you can roll it out. Xanthan gum is a natural substance that helps mimic this property. Choose a gluten-free flour mix that includes it, such as Cup4Cup gluten-free all-purpose flour or Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 gluten-free baking flour. Or, add 1/2 tsp xanthan gum to your own gluten-free flour mix.
