Another entry from my Spice Cookie Baking Day with Ericka.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE ginger!
What's spicier than Candied Ginger?
I wanted to try it in a cookie. I love to just snack on little pieces of it. But I've never had it 'in' anything.
So another search of the interwebs turned up this recipe!
Moxie's Crystallized Ginger Cookies from recipezaar.com.
Moxie's Crystallized Ginger Cookies
11 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 TBLS sesame oil
1/4 C dark molasses
1 C granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 C flour
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 ounces candied ginger, coarsely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
Preheat oven to 375F.
Cream butter& sesame oil with molasses sugar and egg.
Sift together dry ingredients (except candied ginger) and add to creamed mixture.
Fold in candied ginger.
Chill for one hour.
Form into 1-inch balls, roll in granulated sugar.
Put cookies about 2 inches apart from each other on a greased baking sheet (or one you have lined with parchment paper).
Bake 8-10 minutes.
Cream butter, sesame oil, sugar, egg and molasses.
Mmmmm... the sesame oil smells AMAZING!!!
Whisk together dry ingredients (except ginger)
Chop candied ginger...
Chop it much finer than this...
My step-by-step pics are missing quite a few steps this time!
Fold in candied ginger and refrigerate for one hour.
Roll into one inch balls... and roll balls in granulated sugar.
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes.
These cookies totally ROCK!
Even Mr SpiceCookieHater like them.
The sesame oil gives them a really amazing nutty flavor that really compliments the candied ginger.
Plus these cookies are nice and chewy... and they stay that way!
Definitely a keeper!!
