How to Make Double Ginger Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Cream butter, ginger, salt and 1¼ cups sugar. Blend in molasses and egg. Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda; blend into the mix. Stir in minced ginger. (Chill dough slightly if desired for ease of handling and to reduce spread.)
  3. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar to coat, then arrange approximately 2-inches apart on a buttered baking sheet.
  4. Bake 10 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes before transferring to racks to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container.
