Ginger Snap Cookies

1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

In medium bowl, cream butter, sugar, molasses, and eggs.

In large bowl combine dry ingredients; stir into butter mixture.

Scoop out dough, and shape into 1/2 inch balls.

Roll into granulated sugar.

Arrange at least 3 inches apart on a baking sheet. (They spread while baking).

Bake for 5 to 8 minutes. (Baking less time will give you a chewy cookie; baking more will make them crisp).
