Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons sugar divided
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons crystallized ginger finely chopped
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 T. water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a medium bowl.

  2. In a large bowl, cream butter with 1 cup sugar. Add egg and mix until uniformly combined. Stir in crystallized ginger, molasses, and water.

  3. Add the sifted dry ingredients in 3 batches, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Using wet hands, form rounded tablespoon-sized balls of dough. Roll each ball in the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and lay on ungreased baking sheets about 2” apart. Press down each to flatten slightly.

  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, rotating the baking sheet halfway through baking. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet slightly, about 5 minutes, before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
