Ultimate Ginger Cookies
I Love Me The Ginger Cookie

My ever increasing love for ginger continues...with these Ultimate Ginger Cookies. (You can find the Barefoot Contessa's recipe here)

a. 1 1/4 cups of crystallized ginger make this a yummy cookie.
b. Lots of spices including ground ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves.
c. The dough is pretty sticky and hard to mix...I broke my spatula!
d. I used an ice cream scoop to makes these blobs of dough. Then they were dipped in sugar.

Moist and chewy. I wish you could smell them!

This was super easy to make and has no dairy (uses oil instead of butter) but one egg. Try it!
Pin It!

Ohhhh...these look so good! I'm going to have to try these soon. Along with the chocolate pudding from your TWD. I appreciate any recipe I can make by hand and I love chocolate pudding!

Did I tell you I lost my hand blender last week? It just died on me and it was only 15 years old. I know, I know, I need to get to a Bed Bath and Beyond ASAP!

These are by far the VERY BEST ginger cookie I've ever made or tasted!

Need help!!!! i tried baking the Ultimate Ginger Cookie recipe of Barefoot Contessa twice and i can't seem to get it. The first time i tried it, the texture wasn't right so i thought i must have lacked 1 cup of flour. So, today i tried to bake another batch being mindful of the measurements and the timing..still the cookies turned out different from expected as seen in your pictures and the others who made it. What am i doing wrong?? The cookies didn't crackle on top and it wasn't chewy but hard. I used olive oil, can that be? or what vegetable oil should i use? Would appreciate your help!!

Dear Anonymous, Sorry, I don't know what happened! I used canola oil to make my cookies, not olive oil. But I don't know if that made the different. Are you overmixing the batter? Sorry I'm not a House-like baking diagnostician. ;) - mary the food librarian

Alright. I'm done: just meticulously went through ALL your ginger recipes, as I. LOVE. Ginger. (too.)

Wanted to make the best something soon, and I have settled on these cookies, which I haven't made since leaving Amsterdam. You don't see ginger snaps here in France (at least I haven't run across any). Ginger bread, oh yes. So I'll whip these up and see what some of my French friends think...Thank you for the inspiration!
