DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 2-3 cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.Combine the sugar and candied ginger in a food processor and grind until fine.
  • Pour into a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, wisk together the melted butter and brown sugar. Add the egg and molasses and mix well.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices and sift into the butter mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to blend.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour.
  • Using a #20 cookie scoop or a 1/4 cup measure, scoop balls of dough, and gently flatten to form 2-1/2 to 3 inch discs.
  • Roll each disc in the ginger sugar, and place on the lined cookie sheet, leaving about 3 inches between each cookie.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes, until just golden brown around the edges, but still slightly soft. Do not overbake.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately slide the paper or mat onto a metal rack to cool.
  • I use a small cookie scoop for these to make smaller (and more!) cookies. Start out baking them for 8 minutes and then adjust the time accordingly.
