Quite possibly the best ginger cookies ever, this recipe tastes like something your grandma might have made. Impossibly chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside, these cookies are packed with three levels of ginger—crystallized ginger, freshly grated ginger and ground ginger for a taste that truly embodies an old-fashioned ginger cookie. This recipe yields 54 cookies so you can keep some for yourself and share with your neighbors and friends—but once you try a bite of these tasty triple-ginger treats, you might not want to share at all!

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Crystallized ginger is fresh gingerroot cooked in a candy syrup and coated with coarse sugar.
  • tip 2
    To get cookies uniform in shape and size, use a small ice-cream scoop to measure dough before shaping.
  • tip 3
    When baking your cookies measure out your ingredients—or “mise en place,” which translates from French to “putting everything in place,” and is a step chefs and bakers take to make putting together a recipe quicker and smoother.
  • tip 4
    Bake cookies one sheet at a time on the middle oven rack for best results. This allows for an even distribution of heat, which results in even baking and browning of cookies.
