Three Ginger Cookies



Three Ginger Cookies

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 1/4 cup unbleached flour
2 tsp. ground ginger
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh ginger root
1/2 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger

Cream the butter and brown sugar in a large bowl. Beat in molasses and
then the egg. Sift the flour, ground ginger, baking soda and salt
together. Stir into the butter mixture until blended. Add the fresh and
crystallized ginger and stir until well mixed. Refrigerate the dough
covered at least 2 hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease cookie sheets. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place about 2
inches apart on the cookie sheets. Bake until browned - 10 minutes.
Remove to wire racks to cool completely - makes 3 1/2-4 dozen cookies.
Excellent cookies!
