Double Ginger Cookies

As you may have noticed from last week’s recipes, I am a big ginger fan. I also like to use crystallized ginger in cookies. This is a heartier cookie than your typical Ginger Crinkle.

1-1/2 cups flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
¾ cup chopped crystallized ginger
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon ginger
1 cup sugar
½ cup applesauce
¼ cup oil
½ teaspoon vanilla

Combine all dry ingredients. Make a well in center. Whisk together sugar, applesauce, oil and vanilla. Add to flour mixture and stir until just moistened. Cover and chill for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into balls and roll in sugar. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets and bake for 15 minutes. Let set for 1 to 2 minutes on pan; them remove to wire racks to finish cooling.

    • I don’t know where to find it in Israel; maybe another reader can help??? In Los Angeles, It’s Delish makes it with a reliable hechsher.

    • i would look in the machane yehuda shuk (that is if your from yerushalayim) there are a few spice stores that carry fresh ginger as well as many other things so maybe they would have the crystallized ginger too…
