  • ½ cup large-grain sugar (such as turbinado)
  • 2 cups gram flour (can be bought at any asian store) or (spelt, all-purpose, whole wheat, or gluten-free).
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 1 tsp star anise, finely ground
  • 4½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp fine-grain sea salt
  • ½ cup unsalted coconut butter, room temperature
  • ¼ cup unsulphured molasses
  • 2/3 cup fine-grain natural cane sugar, sifted
  • 1½ tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 cup crystallized ginger, finely minced
  • Zest of 2 lemons



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with unbleached parchment paper or a Silpat mat, place the large-grain sugar in a small bowl and set aside.


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, star anise, ground ginger, and salt.


Heat the butter in a skillet until it is just barely melted. Stir in the molasses, natural cane sugar, and fresh ginger. The mixture should be warm, but not hot; if it is desirable to the touch, let it cool a bit. Then add bicabornate soda the mixture will raise with bubbles.


Now with a folding motion whisk very gently.


Pour mixture over the flour mixture, and add the crystallized ginger (make sure it isn't too clumpy) and lemon zest.


Stir until just combined.


I like these cookies tiny bite-sized.


Scoop out the dough in exact, level tablespoons and seperate them in two before rolling each 1/2 tablespoon of dough into a ball.


From there, grab a small handful of the large-grain sugar you set aside earlier and roll each dough ball between your palms to heavily coat the outside of each. Place a few inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until cookies puffs up, darken, get fragrant, and crack.
