These spicy ginger crackles are chewy, old-fashioned cookies with broad appeal.
Make Ahead Tips
To freeze these ahead, put the sugared dough balls on a tray in the freezer until they’re rock-hard and then stash them in zip-top bags. When it’s time to bake, arrange them on cookie sheets and let them thaw while the oven heats up.
I have to say, this is a no fail recipe. The hardest part is remembering to only add one cup of sugar to the dough. The other 1/3 cup is for rolling the cookies. FC, perhaps you could specify this in the ingredients section. This recipe made 36 using a 1-1/2 inch scoop and took about 12 minutes in my oven. Tasty, easy, what's not to like?
These are amazing! It is not often that I try a new cookie recipe that garners the reactions from friends and family all us bakers secretly hope for.... Super easy to make and the results made me feel like a superstar baker. So good. I will definitely make again.
*I followed the recipes by 'weight' on my scale, and I believe this makes a big difference in the results.
These are Fantastic! I made these for a fundraiser, and people said they were the best cookie they had ever had! I froze the uncooked dough balls and then just baked them off as needed after they came back to room temperature. Recipe doubles and triples easily. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. The combination of ginger, cinnamon, cloves & molasses gave the cookie great flavor. Even people who said they didn't like ginger cookies Loved these and came back for more. Shelf life was a good week. Perfect.
