Home | Recipes | G


  • 1 1/2 c Powdered sugar
  • 1 1/4 c All purpose flour
  • 1/2 c Chilled unsalted butter; diced (1 stick)
  • 1 tb Minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tb Ground ginger
  • 1/2 ts Ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 3/4 c Whole almonds; toasted
  • 3 tb Whipping cream
  • 3 tb Chopped crystallized ginger
  • Powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 325F. Line 2 heavy large baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine first 7 ingredients in processor and blend using on/off turns until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add almonds, cream and crystallized ginger and process just until moist clumps form. Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch-diameter balls. Place on prepared sheets. Moisten bottom of glass; dip into powder sugar and press each dough ball to 1/4-inch thickness.
Bake cookies until brown on bottom and edges, about 28 minutes. Transfer cookies to rack and cool. (Store airtight at room temperature.)
Makes about 26.
