triple ginger cookies
from dave jonas
These are the most amazing ginger cookies I've ever had -- big, soft, and ginger ... fabulous.
Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat in the molasses and then the egg.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, ground ginger, baking soda, and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the butter. Mix with a wooden spoon until blended. Add the ginger root and crystallized ginger and stir until well mixed. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
Heat oven to 350F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place about 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake until browned, about 10 minutes.
Remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
