We love our ginger cookies a little puffy, soft and chewy, with plenty of ginger and spice! Slightly more or less flour will make a thicker or thinner cookie – adjust the flour to suit your preference.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (170°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper, if desired.
  2. Stir dry ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and creamy. Beat in molasses and egg.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet mixture. Mix well. Stir in Crystallized Ginger.
  5. Chop Crystallized Ginger and stir into mixture. Chill dough one hour for easier handling.
  6. Form into 1-1/4-to 1-1/2-inch balls (about 3-cm), or use a cookie scoop. Roll balls in coarse sugar.
  7. Place two inches apart on baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven while centers are still soft. Let stand 1 minute. Cool completely on baking sheet or wire rack. Crinkled tops form as cookies cool.

Notes

Bonus! Smash one scoop of vanilla ice cream between two cooled Ginger Snaps. Press cookies together to sandwich the ice cream. Serve immediately or wrap in plastic wrap and freeze. Repeat with additional cookies and ice cream.
