Triple Ginger Cookies

I serve this cookie often, to remind people that herbal remedies aren't just teas and tinctures. Herbal remedies can also come in the form of delicious food!

Benefits of Ginger

Ginger has several benefits, and you can learn about them all in my recent blog post all about GINGER. However, I use these cookies specifically for gingers effect on the digestive system.

Ginger root is a warming spice that supports healthy digestion. It stimulates digestion, helps calm an upset stomach, decreases nausea, and can help decrease bloating and gas.

Therefore, these cookies are the perfect sweet treat for serving after a heavy meal.

My Recipe

  • 1 egg

  • 2 1/4 cup flour

  • 2 tsp ground ginger

  • 2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 3/4 TBSP grated fresh ginger (more or less to taste)

  • 1/3 cup chopped crystallized ginger (the soft ginger in the candy aisle)


  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the brown sugar. Beat in egg and molasses.

  2. Add in flour, ground ginger, baking soda and salt.

  3. Stir in fresh and crystallized ginger.

  4. Chill dough for 1-2 hours.

  5. Preheat oven to 350⁰ F.

  6. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, roll in sugar, and place on a parchment-lined baking tray. Space cookies about 2 inches apart.

  7. Bake 10 - 14 minutes (shorter time for a soft cookie, longer for a crispy cookie). Let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. (Note - cooking times vary due to the accuracy of your oven temperature.)
