Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2021

I loved, loved, loved, these fabulous Ginger Meltaways, They’re filled with crystalized ginger! They also include vanilla chips so they have a soft texture with a tiny, little crunch. Amazing. These delightful cookies made our Christmas giving list this year and they were a wonderful addition.

I received a box of assorted candied fruits from Paradise Fruit Company to try out in new recipes. I have been working my way through the box and wondered what I could do with the crystalized ginger. I decided to try a new twist on my Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies. I chopped the ginger into smaller pieces. Then I added vanilla chips to increase the flavor. I can’t tell you how delicious these cookies turned out. I gave one to my neighbor when we were out talking in the back yard. She loved it. So did I!

Don’t be afraid to try these jewels. The ginger does not overwhelm the cookie. It adds a very pleasant taste and texture to a melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookie. I hope you give these a try because everyone’s gonna want seconds!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. real vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 5 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods)
  • 8 oz. container Paradise crystalized ginger
  • 12 oz. pkg. vanilla chips or white baking chips

Instructions
 

  • Mix butter, oil, eggs, vanilla, sugars, salt, cream of tartar, and baking soda with an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Stir in flour, crystalized ginger, and vanilla chips with a wooden spoon.
  • Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheets sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Chill cookie sheets with cookie dough in refrigerator one hour.
  • Bake at 350° for about 12-14 minutes or until done.
  • Rotate cookie sheets on racks every six minutes of baking time.

Notes

NOTE: If you have to chill the cookie dough balls for more than one hour, you will have to press the cookies down with a fork in criss-cross fashion. Otherwise the cookies will not spread.
NOTE: I had to refrigerate the dough for several hours before I could bake the cookies. I set the dough out about 30-40 minutes before rolling into balls. Then I baked without refrigerating the dough a second time.
