The Best Chewy Ginger Cookies

made with Molasses & Honey

If you love a chewy cookie but want a restrained molasses flavor that is also light on clove, this is the cookie for you. Let me show you how to make them.

Here are all the ingredients you'll need to make these babies.

You don't even need a mixer or hand mixer to make these. You'll get great results with just a bowl, a whisk, and a spatula.

Mince your crystallized ginger really finely, then rub it into the sugar and spices so it doesn't stick together. Whip up some salted ginger sugar for rolling the balls of dough in.

Melt the butter, mix in the sugar and spice mixture, molasses, and honey followed by the egg. Whisk in the flour/baking soda to make a soft, sticky dough. Refrigerate for an hour.

Roll the dough into the salted ginger sugar, round into balls, and bake for 12 minutes. Bang the pan halfway through and at the end of baking to ensure an even spread and lots of crackles on top.

You'll end up with the soft, super chewy ginger cookies of your dreams.
