Ingredients

  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

  • 4 teaspoons ground ginger

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup butter, softened

  • 1 egg

  • ¼ cup dark molasses

  • cup chopped crystallized ginger (Optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Sift the flour, ground ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and allspice together into a mixing bowl; stir.

  3. Beat sugar and butter with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth and creamy. Beat egg and molasses into creamed butter mixture. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture until just coming together into a batter. Gently fold crystallized ginger through the batter.

  4. Roll rounded teaspoon-sized amounts of dough into small balls between your hands and place onto ungreased baking sheets about 2 inches apart.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until the tops are rounded and slightly cracked, about 10 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
