Triple Ginger Cookies

 Merry day after Christmas.  I am finally taking the time to post some cookie recipes.  I even have recipes left over from Thanksgiving to post, oops.  I will try to be better about that in the coming year.  To make up for it, here are some amazing cookies. 

They have three different types of ginger: ground ginger, fresh ginger, and crystallized ginger.  If you don't like ginger you should probably stay away from these, but in my opinion they are pretty awesome.

Triple Ginger cookies

1/2 cup large-grain sugar (i.e. turbinado)
2 cups flour
1 tsps baking soda
4 1/2 tsps ground ginger
1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup unsulphured molasses
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 large egg, well beaten
1 cup crystallized ginger, finely minced

1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, ground ginger, and salt.
2. Heat the butter in a skillet until it is just barely melted. Stir in the molasses, granulated sugar, and fresh ginger. The mixture should be warm, but not hot.
3. Whisk in the egg. Pour this over the flour mixture, add the crystallized ginger. Stir until just combined.
4. Place turbino sugar into a shallow bowl. Shape dough into small (1 tsp sized) balls and roll in sugar. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
5. Bake in a 350F degree oven for 7 - 10 minutes.

  1. Ooooh yours are even smaller than mine. Or more spherical... my spread out a bunch but I wanted them to be more tiny and round. Wonder what I did wrong...

  2. Since ginger is good for settling an upset stomach, this might be good for a New Years Day brunch!
