Gingerbread cookies are a common sight at dessert tables during the December Holiday season. Their rich, slightly zesty, and sweet flavor are delicious enough to forget that they hide a significant amount of ginger and are thus a potent anti-inflammatory and digestive regulator. This recipe lowers the cookies sugar content but retains the consistency and texture needed to shape them in the most festive ways possible.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C) and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.(2 minutes)
  2. In a single bowl, mix the baking soda, flour, cinnamon, ginger, and salt.(1 minute)
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar and molasses using an electric mixer at regular speed.(5 minutes)
  4. Turn the mixer to low speed, add the eggs, and continue mixing for 1 more minute.(1 minute)
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix on medium speed for 2 more minutes.(2 minutes)
  6. Add the crystallized ginger to the mix.
  7. Scoop the dough onto a flat, floured surface and roll the dough until 1/2 inch thick. Cut each cookie with your hands or with a cookie cutter, as desired.
  8. Press both sides of the cookies on the granulated sugar and place them on the sheet pans.
  9. Bake.(13 minutes)
  10. Let the cookies cool before storing them.(2 minutes)
