Homemade Ginger Cookie Recipe

Ginger Cookies

These ginger cookies are unlike any other ginger cookie you’ve ever had. They’re soft and crispy, oh so buttery, with a soothing vanilla and ginger finish. When possible, serve them still warm from the oven (after cooling 10-15 minutes). This recipe was adapted from the recipe printed on the back of a bag of Melissa’s crystallized ginger.


2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
7 oz sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 Tbl vanilla extract
2 Tbl ginger root, minced
10.625 oz all purpose flour
3 oz crystallized ginger, minced


  1. Cream together butter, sugar, and salt until creamy.
  2. Add eggs. Mix well.
  3. Add vanilla and ginger root. Mix well.
  4. Add crystallized ginger and flour to cookie dough.
  5. Drop heaping tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake at 375° F for 12 minutes.

Makes approximately 30 cookies (1 oz each)
Each ginger cookie is approximately 135 calories.
