25 to 25 servings
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup crystallized ginger , cut into 1/4-in. chunks
- 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.
