I know a lot of people who fall back on old favorites when it comes to their holiday baking. But for me, I leave the chocolate behind. The holidays, to me, are about the more exotic and interesting flavors.

Ginger is one of those baking spices that only seems to come out during the holidays. And this recipe will absolutely delight any ginger fan.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup butter, browned and chilled
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup dark molasses
  • ½ cup sugar, for rolling
