1
teaspoon ground ginger
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
teaspoon allspice
1/8
teaspoon ground cloves
1/2
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
cup packed light brown sugar
2
tablespoons light molasses

Topping

2
tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger
2

  • 1 In medium bowl, stir together flour, ground ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, allspice and cloves; set aside. In large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar on medium speed 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add molasses, gingerroot and egg; beat on low speed until blended. Add flour mixture; beat until soft dough forms.

  • 4 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until puffed and light brown on bottom. Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely before storing in airtight container.

Expert Tips

Chopping crystallized ginger with granulated sugar prevents it from clumping or sticking to knife.

If desired, roll dough logs into granulated sugar before chilling and slicing.
