Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until very creamy.
In another bowl, stir together the flour, ground ginger and salt. Add to the butter mixture, beating just until a smooth dough forms. With a fork, stir in the crystallized ginger just until evenly distributed. With floured fingers or the back of a spoon, spread in an ungreased 9 in (23 cm) square baking pan. Place in the preheated oven, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until evenly but very lightly browned on top. Let cool for about 15 minutes; then, with a very sharp serrated knife, cut into squares. Let cool completely before removing from pan.
