Chewy Ginger Chocolate Chip Cookies

barbara hale


I first saw this recipe in a Martha Stewart magazine.I tried it-and it quickly became a big favorite!Between the chocolate and chopped ginger,it combines the best of two worlds in one bite!Usually these would be just "everyday cookies" as I say,meaning if it rains or snows,or if a game is on-we make cookies!But these are truly so yummy that my family now asks for them also at Christmas time too,along with our other traditional and special Christmas cookies! It's gotta be a good one tho to be in my holiday category!Enjoy.. as much as we do!!

"grandmas" dark molasses
1 1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Set oven to 350.
Cream butter and brown sugar.Add molasses and stir to blend.
Add the dry ingredients:flour,baking soda,cocoa powder and spices,blending well with the butter/molasses mixture.
Lastly,add in the choc chips,mixing till blended into the batter.
Take dough by rounded teaspoons and put onto a greased cookie sheet.Leave a bit of room in between each one.
Sprinkle pinches of white sugar on top of each cookie before baking.Can use colored sugars too!
**Bake for betw about "11-15" min..OR until the tops are slightly cracked.
Careful not to overbake bec they will be too hard.
**I played with the cooking times from the original recipe.Time varies for whatever reason.Naturally the size you make them effects the cooking time too.You may do as I do..and just watch carefully till done-always within the time frames listed.
Once they're done,be prepared to hide the goods! Warm ones are deadly!
