  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger
  • Turbinado sugar, for rolling


Preheat oven to 350° F.

Combine flour, baking soda, spices and salt.

In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add molasses and egg and blend well. Add the flour mixture in batches until incorporated evenly. Fold in crystallized ginger.

Form cookies into 1 1/2-inch balls and roll in turbinado sugar. Transfer to parchment paper-lined baking sheets and flatten them slightly with the bottom of a glass or your fingers.

Bake for 12 to 13 minutes; cookies should be soft in the center.
