Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger

  2. Drop small teaspoons of the batter about 3-inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets and bake the cookies in batches in the middle of a preheated 350°F (175°C) oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are golden.
  3. Let the cookies cool for 3 minutes on the sheet pan, then transfer them carefully with a metal spatula to racks, then let them cool completely.

Makes 4 dozen cookies.
