1 1/3 cup Gluten Free flour mix
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
¾ cup brown sugar
2 tbsp molasses
2 large eggs
1 tbsp milk
1 teas vanilla
1 teas almond extract
½ cup finely chopped or ground almonds

Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, combine GF flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, salt and spice. Set aside.
In another bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar, molasses, eggs, milk, vanilla, and almond extract.
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix, then add almonds and mix until combined. Spoon half of the dough onto your parchment paper into a line about 12″ long. Use wet hands to form the dough into a rectangle about 4″ wide. Repeat with the other half of the dough.
Bake 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Cool for 10 minute before proceeding. Using a serrated knife, slice the loaves into 1/2″ thick pieces. Place back onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn the cookies over and bake another 5-10 minutes until cookies are evenly brown on each side. Cool.
