Chewy Ginger Cookies

Chewy Ginger Cookies - Never Dessert You

    Have you ever seen the Original Kings of Comedy?  My best part is the end with stand up comedian - Bernie Mac.  I crack up all the time when he talks about how his nieces and nephew driving him crazy.  My favorite part is when he imitates his nephew saying "To get some milk and ' coookies".   If you have not seen it you have to check it out.  You would be dying with laughter.

    When I made these cookies that is what came to my mind.  

Chewy Ginger Cookies - Never Dessert You
    
    I was constantly cracking up in my kitchen saying "Who wants some milk an coookies".  So who want some?  These cookies are right in time for fall.  They have that spice flavor with a ginger-sweet bite.


Chewy Ginger Cookies 

Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. fine salt
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup finely grated fresh ginger
1 large egg
1/3 cup unsulfured molasses
3/4 cup raisins
   sanding sugar, for rolling

Directions

1. Whisk together flour, ground ginger, baking soda, and salt.  In a large bowl, using a mixer beat butter and granulated sugar on medium-high heat until pale and fluffy, 3 minutes, scraping down bowl as needed.  Beat in fresh ginger, egg, and molasses.  Beat in flour mixture: fold in raisins.  Scoop dough into 1 1/2-inch balls onto a parchment -lined baking sheet.  Refrigerate until firm, 30 minutes.

2.  Preheat oven 350 degrees F.  Roll balls in sanding sugar, placing 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.  Bake until centers are just set, 16 minutes, rotating halfway through.  Let cool on sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes.  Transfer cookies to racks: let cool completely.
