I'll start with an apology because I'm sure this recipe came in part or in whole from someone else, but we've made it so long I can't remember where it came from. However, there was a recent request so here it is:
In mixing bowl:
775 g AP flour
4 t. Baking soda
1/2 t. Salt
In your mixer bowl:
345 g Butter, no salt, softened
350 g Brown sugar
1/2 C. White sugar
3 T. Ground ginger
2" Fresh ginger, grated
1/4 C. Candied ginger*
1 t. Cinnamon, freshly grated
1/2 t. Cloves, freshly ground
Mix with paddle attachment until light and fluffy. Add directly into this bowl:
1/2 C. Molasses
Mix until combined. Add the flour mixture all at once but only paddle until is just combines - no more! Do NOT overmix! Use an ice cream scoop to shape, and chill at least one hour.
Every oven is different but we bake at 350º for 25 minutes on a silpat lined baking sheet.
*The candied ginger makes a big difference. Store bought tends to be too sweet, so we make our own using fresh ginger. This gives you a spicy hot ginger that's minimally sweet.
