  1. Instructions

    Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease two tiny 6" cast iron skillets generously.

  2. Next, melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 20-30 seconds, or until completely melted.

  3. Stir in the sugar, brown sugar, molasses, and almond milk once the butter has melted. To combine, stir vigorously for about 30 seconds, then add the egg white.

  4. Then, on top of that, add the flour, spices, and baking soda.

  5. Stir the mixture until there are no more flour streaks.

  6. The batter should be split evenly between the two skillets.

  7. Bake the gingerbread cookies for 17-18 minutes in the lower third of the oven, checking after 16 minutes. You want the batter to stay moist, and a hot skillet will easily dry it out! With the residual heat from the skillet, the cookies will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven.

  8. Allow for some cooling time before coating the cookies with powdered sugar and serving.
