Candied Ginger Cookies

Candied Ginger Cookies created by Annacia

Even though I have several cookies that are traditional to make for Christmas, every year, I like to try a new cookie. You never know when you'll find a real winner. Last year I found this recipe -- and a winner it is! I had just gotten some fresh crystalized ginger and wanted to use it in an easy recipe. This cookie, which I found at Cooks.com. fits the bill perfectly. It has a hauntingly subtle flavor -- and when you get to a chunk of crystalized ginger, WOW! Deliious!

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and mix well. Combine flour, soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt, mixing to combine. Add to creamed ingredients and mix well. Chill.
  • Roll into balls smaller than golf balls and flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. These spread a little so don't crowd.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  • NOTE: These are very plain looking cookies. You may want to melt chocolate chips and drizzle over the cookies to "fancy them up" a bit.

    These are yummy cookies alright. I used Splenda for the sugar and then sunk my good intension's by doubling the candied ginger, lol. I made the recipe for 1 dozen cookies and got exactly that. I set the timer for 10 mins and then did the dishes. I did find that the 10 mins was just a little bit too long for my oven. They would have been perfect with 1 -1.5 mins less. That was my fault for not watching them more closely since I know that my oven runs hot. This was a great trial run for Christmas and I'm going to enjoy eating this dozen :D
