  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Mash the brown sugar, butter, and molasses together in a bowl with a spoon until the mixture is creamy and thoroughly combined. Mix in the ginger, eggs, and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir 1/4 of flour mixture into the butter mixture at a time, incorporating each addition before adding the next. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool before cutting.

These are outrageously delicious! Perfect just the way they are, we loved them.

I gave this recipe to my 16 yr to make for my b-day present. I had not baked it prior so I was not sure what to expect. (Risky yes) While I enjoyed the flavor, it did need a longer baking time (...

These are really good. I found them to have chewy and brownie-like texture. I did have to bake a bit longer (more like 40 minutes) but did not wait until my toothpick came out dry- just clean.

I like Big Soft Ginger Cookies slightly better, but these are really good and easier to make.

I went out of town for a day, came back, and the entire pan was gone! Beautifully moist and delicious, definitely not cakey, with a nicely balanced ginger flavor. I baked mine for around 38 mi...
