A soft, chewy, moist center with a sugary, crunchy coating; Irish Ginger Cookies are golden nuggets of cookie perfection with the deep ginger flavour we all love.
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with a silicone liner or parchment paper. Set aside.
Using a hand-held mixer, blend together the brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
Add the egg and salt. Mix into the butter mixture.
Add the flour, baking soda, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, and ground cloves. Mix until just incorporated. Do not over mix.
Use a small cookie scoop, about 1 tablespoon in size, to scoop the cookie batter into even portions. Roll into balls and roll into the confectioner's sugar until well coated.
Place the dough on the baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately transfer to a wire cooling rack to completely cool.
