Ginger Snowflake Sparkler Cookies
Deliciously spiced and topped with beautifully sparkling crystalized ginger, these decadent cookies are a treat that look as good as they taste.
- Cream brown sugar, butter, molasses, and egg thoroughly on high speed of electric mixer. Add remaining ingredients, mixing until combined. Divide dough into two, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Roll dough on very well floured surface to ¼” (0.5 cm) thick. Cut with well floured 2” (5 cm) cookie cutters. Place on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with white coarse sugar, if using.
- Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned around edges. Let cool on pans, 5 minutes, then remove to cooling rack.
