What a great quick cookie recipe! Brown sugar, butter and ginger cookies. Very fast to make... And to eat! These cookies will become an essential at home if you try them, because they are delicious.

Today we have made cookies with the children, and apart from having a great time forming and decorating their cookies each one to their liking, some SUPER DELICIOUS cookies have come out. These are cookies that, although they have an interesting dose of ginger, the flavor is mixed in the butter and brown sugar and do not have an abusive intensity of ginger flavor, but on the contrary: you get cookies with a spicy flavor but really delicious. So I leave you the recipe in case you dare to also make your Sunday a cookie Sunday.

Give them the shape you like the most, be it round, square, in the shape of churros or in the shape of animals, stars or whatever the little ones want. Then, simply decorate them with sugar or chocolate chips, anything looks great on them.

Brown Sugar Ginger Butter Cookies


  • 150 gr of butter at room temperature
  • 90 g brown sugar
  • 1 XL egg
  • 50 ml of milk at temp. ambient
  • 1 dessert spoon of vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp smooth ginger dessert
  • 1 dessert spoon of bicarbonate
  • 130 gr pastry wheat flour
  • 130g wheat flour


  1. Put the butter in the KitchenAid bowl and turn on the robot with the flexible side paddle accessory on speed 2.
  2. Add the brown sugar and let it integrate.
  3. Add the slightly beaten egg.
  4. Add the milk, vanilla extract, and ginger.
  5. In a bowl, mix the flours with the salt and baking soda and add it to the KitchenAid bowl. Mix everything until it is well integrated and ideally reserve in the fridge for half an hour.
  6. Preheat the oven to 190ºC.
  7. While the oven is heating, form the cookies: in a perforated tray and with a cooking paper or mat, form the cookies (you can make balls and flatten, to obtain round cookies, or stretch the dough and give the shape you want).
  8. Add whatever filling or garnish you'd like (ideas below), or simply sprinkle vanilla sugar on top.
  9. Bake the cookies at medium height of the oven for about 10 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown but to the touch they are still a tender point. Take out of the oven and let them cool, they will harden and settle in a few minutes.

Butter, Brown Sugar, and Ginger Cookies

Ideas to decorate your butter and ginger cookies (inspired by my little ones)

A little joy to the cookie will do you great. There are many options, such as adding icing or pouring a little syrup on top, but you have some very simple options that we love at home and are the ones we are most used to doing, such as:
  • Sprinkle vanilla sugar or brown sugar (one of my favorite options) all over the cookie or a little bit in the center. Decorate, add flavor and a little delicious crunch.
  • Add churritos or dark chocolate balls.
  • Decorate with churritos or colored balls.
  • Decorate with grated coconut, or with coconut and chocolate chips (a winning combination).
  • Mix the dough with the chocolate and/or coconut churritos, and then form the cookies. They will be cookies with a surprise inside.
  • Instead of churritos, use chocolate chips or chop dark or white chocolate and add it to the dough.
When you add these decorations, remember not to leave them loose but to lightly press the sugar and seeds with your finger so that they stick slightly to the dough, otherwise they can be loose and when you lift the cookies they would all fall.
Simple and the most successful, these cookies are addicting. I recommend you do them!
