So these cookies have been a hit whenever I’ve made them…they are chewy and gingery and rather tasty with a latte! Or a good old Americano. Pretty easy to whip up the only frustrating thing is chopping up the crystallized ginger…if you can get some crystallized ginger chunks…do it! It will save you time and effort and stop you from slicing your finger trying to scrape them off the knife blade!

2 1/4 c plain flour
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 c butter
1 c dark brown sugar
1/4 c molasses
1 egg
3/4 c chopped crystallized ginger
A sprinkle of sugar for coating

Preheat oven to 170 c

Mix dry ingredients into a bowl and put aside. In a stand mixer cream butter and sugar until fluffy…add the egg and molasses and mix until blended. Mix the crystallized ginger in by hand. Roll into golf ball sized balls and roll in sugar then slightly flatten them on a lined cookie tray and put in the fridge for about 15 minutes. Pop into the oven for about 10 – 12 minutes. Careful not to overdo it…they are meant to be chewy…not hockey pucks!
