Chewy Ginger-Molasses Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • Heat oven to 375 degrees farenheit. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In medium bowl, whisk together melted butter and brown sugar. Whisk in egg and molasses until well blended. In another medium bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients except sugar and crystallized ginger. Stir into butter mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, place sugar and crystallized ginger in food processor; pulse until finely ground. Pour into small bowl.
  • Working with one-third of the dough at a time (keep remaining dough refrigerated), use a #16 ice cream/cookie scoop or a 1/4 cup measure to scoop dough. Roll into 1 3/4-inch balls. Lightly roll and press each ball in crystallized ginger mixture; place on baking sheets, leaving about 3 inches between cookies. Gently flatten into 2 1/4-inch rounds.
  • Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until just golden brown around edges but still slightly soft. Remove from oven; immediately slide parchment paper onto wire racks to cool.
