Steps

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg.
  • Add vanilla and molasses and beat until incorporated.
  • Add dry ingredients to the bowl and beat until just combined. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to fold in candied ginger and cherries. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Adjust oven rack to upper and lower-middle positions and preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop dough by the rounded tablespoon (I like to use a 2 1/2 ounce cookie scoop) onto prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake until darkened and color and just drying on top, about 15 minutes.
  • Let cool 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
