Season & Occasion
Preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) | 350F | gas 4. Grease and line two large baking trays with greaseproof paper.
Cream together the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, about 3-4 minutes.
Beat in the egg followed by the warmed treacle. Stir together the flour mix, bicarbonate of soda, xanthan gum, spices, and salt in a separate mixing bowl.
Stir the flour mixture into the creamed butter mixture in three additions until a soft, even dough forms.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 0.75 cm | 0.333" thickness. Use a star-shaped cutter to cut out star shapes from the dough.
Arrange between the trays, spaced apart. Bake for 12-16 minutes until puffed and dry to the touch on top.
Remove the trays to wire racks, letting the gingerbread cool on the trays.
When ready to serve, dust with a little more ground ginger if desired.
