In medium bowl, combine flour, almond meal, xanthan, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, pepper and salt; set aside.

Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add molasses and egg; blend well. Add dry ingredients in 3 batches, blending just until fully incorporated. Dough will be stiff. Divide dough into 2 balls, flatten into discs, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 3 hours or up to 3 days.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove one dough disc from refrigerator and roll out between 2 pieces of parchment paper or on lightly gluten-free floured work surface to 1/8-inch thick. Cut into desired shapes and place on parchment-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle cutouts with colored sugar, if desired.

Bake 9 to 13 minutes, until edges of cookies are crisp.Cool cookies on sheet 2 to 3 minutes. Remove cookies to wire rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.
