Orange-Ginger Rounds

Chill this soft dough very well so it holds its shape when rolled in the ginger.

  1. Place two 12-by-16-inch pieces of parchment on a work surface. Divide dough in half; form each half into a rough log on parchment. Fold parchment over dough; using a ruler, roll and press dough into a 1 1/2-inch cylinder. Wrap. Chill at least 3 hours.

  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment. Spread crystallized ginger on a work surface. Unwrap logs; roll in ginger to coat. Cut logs into 1/4-inch-thick rounds; place on sheets, spaced 2 inches apart. Bake until edges turn slightly golden, about 15 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool. Bake or freeze remaining dough. Store in an airtight container up to 2 weeks.

    I have made these cookies every year at Christmas for over 8 years. They are delicious, pretty, unique and keep well.

    The orange sable dough is lovely and delicious with either the sugar or the crystallized ginger on the edges. I really like the ginger ones, they are delicious and different. They were the favorites of several of my guests during the holidays.

    These cookies are terribly delicious! I made the dough and baked them about three days later (so they chilled for quite some time) and the colder/harder the dough is, the easier it is to cut it cleanly keeping the sugar on it. I baked mine for 14 minutes and they were perfect. Take a bite, and they crumble in your mouth. Amazing rosemary taste, and perfect with the sugar crunch (I used turbanado sugar.)

    I think the chocolate cookies are a different kind. They look a little flatter...

    The top ones look like they're dipped in chocolate...
