I have a bit of a ginger addiction. It's certainly one of my favorite flavors, and when I went gluten free, ginger cookies were definitely at the top of my list for duplicating in gluten free form.
After playing around for a bit, I came up with these beauties. They are deliciously chewy, and have just the right amount of ginger kick...

Subtly Ginger Cookies (Gluten Free)
by Kristen Wood | MOON and spoon and yum Feb-04-2016
Deliciously chewy gluten-free ginger cookies with just the right amount of sweet and spice!
In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves & salt. Set aside.In a separate mixing bowl, cream together the butter & sugar, and then mix in the egg, honey/syrup, and chopped crystallized ginger.Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until well mixed, cover, and let firm up a bit in the fridge for about 1 hour.Preheat oven to 375°F.Using about 1 tbs of dough, roll out your cookie in your hands to form a ball, roll in your extra sugar & then press flat on a parchment lined cookie sheet.Top each cookie with a portion of a chunk of your extra crystallized ginger (I used a quarter of a cube of ginger). Repeat with your remaining dough.Bake for approx. 10-12 minutes, or until beginning to brown on edges, & then transfer to a cooling rack.Enjoy.
