Bon Appetit is a dependable source for good recipes, and this ginger cookie is quite good. Crispy edges, soft chewy insides and bursting with spicy ginger flavor, it will have you coming back for seconds….and thirds….and more. A combo of ground, crystallized and fresh ginger, along with brown sugar, molasses, cinnamon and cloves produces the intense flavor and pleasing texture of this outstanding cookie. Full disclosure: You’re going to have to be a real ginger lover to appreciate this cookie, because ginger is the dominant flavor here, and it’s strong.
The recipe calls for two kinds of brown sugar: golden and dark. I only had light brown sugar in my pantry, and that’s what I used, without detriment. If ginger is your thing, then this is your cookie.
