  • 2 Tbsp dried minced ginger*
  • 2 Tbsp water*
  • 1 cup 2 sticks salted butter, softened
  • 1 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C molasses
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 C chopped crystallized ginger*
  • 3 C all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 C turbinado sugar for rolling*


  • Place the dried, minced ginger and water into a small bowl and set aside to rehydrate.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar.
  • Beat in the molasses and eggs until combined.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, and ground ginger) into the bowl and mix until combined.
  • Gently stir in the re-hydrated ginger and crystallized ginger until well distributed.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic-wrap and place into the refrigerator to chill.
  • Chill the triple ginger cookie dough for at least 30 minutes.*
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon-sized portions of chilled dough into your hand and roll into balls. Then roll the balls in turbinado sugar to fully coat each dough ball.
  • Place balls 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are golden-brown.
  • Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Enjoy!
  • Store cooled cookies in an air-tight container.


*If you do not have or cannot find dried, minced ginger you can replace the 2 Tbsp of this item + 2 Tbsp of water used to rehydrate it with 2 Tbsp of fresh, finely chopped, ginger root.
*You can use sweet ginger bits in place of the crystallized ginger in this recipe if desired.
*You can use granulated sugar in lieu of turbinado sugar for rolling if desired.
*The dough can also be chilled overnight if that is best for your schedule.
