How To Make double ginger cookies

  • 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.
