Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Mash the brown sugar, butter, and molasses together in a bowl with a spoon until the mixture is creamy and thoroughly combined. Mix in the ginger, eggs, and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir 1/4 of flour mixture into the butter mixture at a time, incorporating each addition before adding the next. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool before cutting.

Lovely, spicy, tasty bites. Since my crew loves their ginger baked goods to have a pleasantly warm afterglow, I added a full tablespoon of ginger and several good shakes of cayenne pepper. Then ...

These are really good! Very easy. The batter is quite thick, but gently spread it in the 9x13 pan. I baked mine for 35 minutes and have crispy edges and a soft interior. Mine are very much t...

These are incredible - chewy, sweet (but not too sweet), the perfect amount of gingery zip. Try these. Love them. As an aside, it did take a little extra time in my oven - almost 40 minutes.

These are outrageously delicious! Perfect just the way they are, we loved them.

I gave this recipe to my 16 yr to make for my b-day present. I had not baked it prior so I was not sure what to expect. (Risky yes) While I enjoyed the flavor, it did need a longer baking time (...

These are really good. I found them to have chewy and brownie-like texture. I did have to bake a bit longer (more like 40 minutes) but did not wait until my toothpick came out dry- just clean.

I like Big Soft Ginger Cookies slightly better, but these are really good and easier to make.

I went out of town for a day, came back, and the entire pan was gone! Beautifully moist and delicious, definitely not cakey, with a nicely balanced ginger flavor. I baked mine for around 38 mi...
