How to make it

  • In a large bowl, combine butter, 3/4 cup sugar, ginger, lemon zest and salt. Cream mixture until well blended, about two to three minutes on medium speed. Scrape the bowl.
  • Add yolks and vanilla. Mix until well blended, about 1 minute.
  • Add flour. Shape tablespoons of dough into 1 inch balls and set them 1 1/2 inches apart on prepared cookies sheets.
  • In a small, shallow dish, mix the crystallized ginger and the remaining 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar.
  • With the palm of your hand, press on the dough balls until about 1/4 inch thick and 2 inches in diameter.
  • Brush tops with egg white and sprinkle with ginger sugar mixture.
  • Press gently on the cookies with the bottom of a metal measuring cup to help the topping adhere.
  • Bake until cookies are light brown on the bottom and around the edges, 11 to 13 minutes.
  • Let cool for five minutes. Transfer to rack to cool completely.
  • When cool. Store in airtight containers.
