Double Ginger Cookies #SundaySupper

Double Ginger Cookies

I’ve been in a very strange spring cleaning mode. Suddenly I want to go through the whole house and rid myself of just about seventeen years’ worth of clutter.

I’ve gone through phases like this before, but I’ve never really made much progress. This time is different. Mom, Dad, and I are all determined to simplify life.

I’ve given away somewhere around ten bins of Barbies and accessories, and I have a few left to hand off, plus a couple things I couldn’t part with. And some was so played with it had to be thrown out.

Double Ginger Cookies

Now I’m onto old board games that have broken boxes they were so often used to bring a little happiness to our lives. Old pictures that now look so blurry or were taken on days I didn’t look my best are in the trash.

I found Teenie Beanies from McDonald’s and pins from our trips to Sea World and Disney World when I was little.

I even came across a few things I’d been thinking about as of late. Like the pennies that were pressed into designs in Disney Land. And the photos from my eighth grade dance. There are a lot of good memories in our house.

Double Ginger Cookies

I keep some and love that I can pass some on to other people so they can make new memories with them.

I should throw in a few of these Double Ginger Cookies. While I love many tropical ingredients, this week’s Sunday Supper theme, ginger is one of my favorites. The flavor is wonderful and it is so good for you with its anti-inflammatory properties.

While I wouldn’t call these cookies a health food even with all that ginger, they are soft and chewy with fun surprise pieces of candied ginger and plump raisins. I think I need to take a break from my spring cleaning and whip up another batch of these cookies.

Double Ginger Cookies #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 27 minutes

Yield: About 20 cookies


2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 tablespoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground cloves

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 ½ sticks unsalted butter, melted

1/3 cup molasses

1 large egg

½ cup coarsely chopped candied ginger (Trader Joe’s has awesome candied ginger)

¼ cup raisins (I like Trader Joe’s Jumbo Raisin Medley)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, baking soda, and salt until well combined.

In a large bowl, stir together butter, molasses, and egg until fully combined. Stir in the flour mixture. Stir in the ginger and raisins until well incorporated.

Place heaping tablespoons of dough on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes until starting to set. Cool completely on pan. Cookies may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or frozen, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature about an hour or in the microwave for 30 seconds.

    My husband loves ginger cookies and usually it is the crispy, crunchy kind. I’ll have to put these on my to-bake list to see if he like a soft and chewy ginger cookie just as much.
