The sugar needs to be brown sugar not white to get the colour you require

Should there be molasses or dark brown sugar in the recipe?

Taste and cookie is goo overall but the cook time is too short. Mine was mine on the side of 14 minutes. Much lighter in color.

Has anyone tried making these a bit more diabetic friendly, like with sugar or flour alternatives?

over 3 years ago

Haven’t tried diabetic friendly version, definitely worth exploring. Please let us know how yours come out if you do try it. Happy baking :)

Can the dough or cookies be frozen to get ahead for a bake sale?

Delish. I added chocolate chips to half the batter....great combo!

I think ginger was used in the UK since it was brought over during spice trade and or from colonies like say India. I am NOT a historian, I’m making an educated guess here. My Scottish and Irish family always made gingerbread ( cake) and ginger cookies.

I need more ginger flavor! Otherwise I love how they rise!!! Any suggestions!

To you in Salt Lake City, I would add an additional 1 tsp of ginger. You can also, add fresh ginger. I use a fine grater, one used for nutmeg. This would give you plenty of flavor !

Yes, you may freeze the cookie dough. You would have to thaw the dough a bit, prior to baking them. You might try one or two cookies first, then adjust baking times, if needed.

Can I make these with sourdough? What adjustment would I need to do, and how much time should it rest before baking?

Delicious! Love the taste, crispness, and smell! Rolled them in Turbinado Cane Sugar versus the standard white sugar which I think added to the nice texture. Kids love them as well. Thx

Gosh I've just tried them! Sooooo good. Just the fact that I didn't have to roll and cut was amazing haha.
For me it was 8 minutes, I added some pepper and nutmeg to give them a swede touch and orange juice casuse I'm at 14.000 feet above sea level in the Peruvian Andes so we need to add more liquid to make recipes work. They turned out jus perfect! Thanks so much. I'll be making them a lot this season for all my American and Canadian friends :)

Perfect! Soft and rise so nicely...I like the lighter ginger flavor.. It's there, just not overwhelming.

Thanks SO much for this recipe my hubby LOVES anything with ginger in it. So I’m always on the look out for new recipes with ginger. Can’t wait to make these but will add more ginger as I know he will love them but LOVE more the extra ginger. Once again many thanks for posting this recipe.

I have come across a reference in a novel about “Christmas gingerbread “ that needed a couple of weeks to age properly. Is anyone familiar with a recipe like this?
