Chewy Ginger Cookies from Blue Bottle

Posted by on January 28, 2014

Blue Bottle Ginger Cookies - Meatballs & Milkshakes

I’ve been hearing about how amazing these ginger cookies from Blue Bottle coffee are, and it turns out, it’s true. I found the recipe on another blog and made a few tweaks, and they’re definitely our favorite ginger cookie. I made these over Christmas, and they didn’t last long. They’re the perfect chewy texture for a ginger cookie, and with the whole wheat flour they’re even pretty healthy! Enjoy!

Chewy Ginger Cookies

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

1 tablespoon dried ginger

3 tablespoons grated fresh ginger

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon cardamom

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup molasses

Combine the flour, baking soda, and dried spices together in a large bowl. In a mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the molasses and fresh ginger and allow to combine. Scrape down the bowl and then add the dry ingredients slowly. Refrigerate dough for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Roll into 1/4 cup balls and then flatten them into discs. Place on a silpat or parchment paper at least 2 inches apart and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until they start to crackle on top. They will still be a little soft but will firm up as they cool. Allow to cool on the baking sheet.

    Those cookies look great. I love ginger cookies, never made with whole wheat flour. Have to give these a try.
