Ginger Coins

Here's a great recipe to make for Chinese New Year!

Makes 5 dozen

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 cup sifted powdered sugar

1/4 cup minced candied ginger

2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts

60 walnut halves

  • Cream the butter and powdered sugar in a large bowl until                                                                 light and fluffy. Beat in the candied ginger, lemon peel, and fresh ginger. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, ground ginger, and salt. Add the creamed mixture, a little at a time, to the flour mixture and mix well. Add the chopped nuts and gently mix to combine

  • Divide the dough in half. Roll each half into a log about 1 /2 inches in diameter and 15 inches long. Roll each log in waxed paper and twist the ends to seal. Refrigerate the dough overnight or place it in the freezer for 2 hours.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. cut the dough into 1/4-inch slices and place the slices 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Press a walnut half on top of each cookie. Bake until the cookies are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the cookies to wire racks and cool.
