Crunchy Ginger Cookies 脆姜饼

Crunchy Ginger Cookies

Just a while ago, we traveled to New Haven, US. The hotel which we stayed always had some ginger cookies displayed in a glass jar on the counter. It is free and my little ones love 'em! They would jump up and down and unanimously asked for the cookies whenever we passed by the counter. It became an habit, day by day, night by night... until the staff could even recognize those cookies monsters of mine!

After returned from our trip, even though I was still fighting my jet lag, I decided to make those little cookies that was much adored. Those cookies were such a gem! The ginger taste was intense and complemented well with the various spices added. Every crunchy bite brought delightful smiles on the face of my little ones.

It shouldn't be difficult, or so I thought. However, I have got to admit that it wasn't as easy as I assumed, it took me a while to get that nice crunch and sufficient gingery spicy taste. Try this out and you won't regret it!

Crunchy Ginger Cookies

  • 170g plain flour, sifted
  • 150g soft dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 level tsp bicarbonate of soda 
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 70g butter, soften
  • 2.5 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 40g egg, beaten
Cooking Directions
  1. Mix all ingredients (except egg) together.
  2. Add egg bit by bit to make a stiff consistency.
  3. Roll out to an inch size.
  4. Bake in preheated oven at 180C (350F) for 12 minutes, then gently flatten the cookies with a spoon and continue to bake for another 5 minutes.
Notes: Rolling the cookie dough into sphere shape and then flattening it is done merely for aesthetic purpose (the crackling effect). You can simply roll the dough without flattening for a side crisp with soft centre cookie, or flatten the dough from beginning (no crackling if you do so) for a crunchy cookie.

  4. 放入已预热焗炉以180℃(350°F)烤12分钟。打开烤炉,用勺子将饼稍微压平(不压也可以,饼干中间会稍微软些),然后继续烘烤5分钟。
