Love ginger? These cookies are for you! They taste just like ginger snaps, but they’re much better because of the candied ginger.


  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup minced crystallized ginger
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (non-dairy) margarine, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh peeled ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup sugar


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Whisk flour, crystallized ginger, baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in medium bowl.

Step 2

Using electric mixer, beat margarine and brown sugar in large bowl until creamy and light. Add applesauce, molasses, fresh ginger, ground ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. Beat to blend. Add flour mixture in two additions, beating on low speed just to blend between additions.

Step 3

Place 1/4 cup sugar in small bowl. Measure about two tablespoons of dough. Roll into ball between palms of hands, then roll in sugar in bowl to coat; place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cookie dough, spacing cookies 1 1/2 inches apart.

Step 4

Bake about 15 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
