Miss Trishy M’s Chewy Ginger Cookies

I love these cookies. They’re spicy and chewy, and a great substitute for swearing, sex, and a trip to the sunny south.

Be sure to use fresh ginger, and grated ginger, not the dried, ground spice.

3/4 cup butter softened

1 cup sugar

2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 cup dark molasses

1 egg

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp ground ginger ( from a jar)

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1.5″ piece of fresh ginger, grated

Combined butter, sugar, molasses, egg and ginger. Beat well.

Mix dry ingedients and blend well.

At wet ingredients to dry ingredients to combine.

Chill for an hour (or overnight, covering the batter with plastic wrap).

Form 1 inch balls (or smaller) roll each in granulated sugar.

Place on greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.

Bake 8-10 minutes ( I only bake for 6 as I use a baking stone and my oven cooks hot)

Do not overbake as they cookies will not be the chewy pieces of culinary heaven that you were expecting.

Yield ~ 5 dozen.

One thought on “Miss Trishy M’s Chewy Ginger Cookies

  1. I’m glad you added not to over bake them because that’s what I usually do as I like my cookies a little brown around the edges. Another recipe I’ll take with me to my sister’s house to make for our baking cookies day. Thank you!
