DIRECTIONS

  • Sift flour, sugar, cornstarch, and ground ginger into a bowl.
  • Cut in butter until mixture becomes a soft dough (requires working beyond the stage when particles are the size of rice kernals).
  • Mix in crystallized ginger. Shape dough into a ball. Knead lightly with fingertips until mixture holds together. Roll into tubular shape and place in cookie press or just slice into 1/8 inch slices. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minures. Cool. Spread ginger filling over the bottom of half the cookies. Cover with remaining cookies.
  • Ginger Filling; Cream 1/4 C butter and 1 t vanilla extract. Add 2 C confectioner's sugar gradually, beating until fluffy. Stir in 2 T grated crystallized ginger.
