  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and molasses. Combine the flour, ground ginger, baking soda, and salt; stir into the molasses mixture using a wooden spoon. Mix in the fresh and crystallized gingers. Cover, and refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Shape dough into 1 inch balls, and place about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

YUMMY!!! These are wonderful! The grocery store near me ran out of crystallized ginger (available in the baking aisle near the candied cherries for fruit cake). I ended up tripling (actually pro...

As much as I REALLY like ginger, I made sure that I chopped the crystallized ginger into very small pieces. I really do think these are the BEST ginger cookies that I have EVER eaten, and I'm al...

AMAZING! I wanted to ensure they would be crunchy and chewy so I added 1/4 c more butter and decreased baking soda to 1 1/2 tsp. Theese are the best Ginger cooies ever.

Dee-lish-us!!!The prep isn't bad for such a great product. I even rolled to cookie balls in turbinado sugar before baking (makes a great sweet crunch).
