Easy peasy cookies with a little zing – Easy Ginger Cookies with candied ginger.



7 oz. (200g) butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar
2 1/2 cups (300g) all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground ginger
3.5 oz. (100g) candied ginger, chopped

some raw brown cane sugar for sprinkling


1. Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and set aside. Chop the candied ginger finely and set aside.

2. Add the butter and brown sugar to a large bowl and mix on high speed until light and fluffy. Mix the flour with baking powder and ground ginger, add to the bowl and knead briefly until you get a smooth dough. Add the chopped candied ginger and knead in. Shape the dough into walnut-sized balls, flatten them and place them with some space in between on the baking sheet (they don’t spread a lot). Sprinkle with some cane sugar and bake for 12-13 minutes until lightly browned. Take out of the oven and let cool down completely on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining dough.


Enjoy baking!
