    Manami's Note:

    What could male a zingy gingersnap even better? Sweet creamy frosting sandwiched between two gingersnaps! From Great Food in the February, 2008 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, created by Rori Trovato. Chill the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes or up to a day.

    1. 1
    2. 2
      In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt; set aside.
    3. 3
      In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup granulated sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add molasses, egg, and vanilla, and beat at medium-high until incorporated, about 30 seconds.
    5. 5
      Reduce speed to low; add flour mixture and mix until well combined.
    6. 6
      Cover and chill at least 30 minutes or up to 1 day.
    7. 7
      Preheat oven to 350°F
    8. 8
      Place remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar in a shallow bowl.
    9. 9
      Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar to coat.
    10. 10
      Arrange about 2 inches apart on 2 ungreased baking sheets.
    11. 11
      Using the bottom of a glass that has been lightly greased, then dipped in sugar, flatten dough into 1/4-inch-thick disks.
    12. 12
      Bake 13 to 15 minutes, or until firm.
    13. 13

    14. 14
    15. 15
      In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients; mix until smooth, adding more powdered sugar as needed (filling should have consistency of very thick frosting).
    16. 16
      With a small spatula, frost bottoms of half the cookies (about 1teaspoon filling each); top with remaining cookies (so bottom sides are together) to make sandwich cookies.
    17. 17
      *The fresh ginger should be peeled unless otherwise noted. To grate fresh ginger, use a microplane grater or a triangular ginger grater, which will catch unwanted ginger fibers in its teeth, leaving behind a juicy, concentrated pulp.

      I loved these cookies! The filling was so good, I plan on using it for many more dessert item. And the cookie itself was very tasty too, you did not even really need the filling to make this cookie taste great!

      These are so delicious! I love the orange-ginger filling and the light and crispy gingersnaps. I expected these to come out hard but they were nice and thin and perfect! Next time I would use a little less sugar, a little less molasses, and a little MORE ginger. I used boxed ground ginger. This really does call for fresh ginger. And the filling was so yummy. Well done to my PAC (2008) baby!!! (-:
