Methods of Preparing Step by Step:

Step 1:

At first, we have to prepare the dough for cookies. Take flour in a bowl and sugar to it. Start to mix the ingredients with a hand mixer or with a stirrer thoroughly. After that, add salt while whisking the ingredients to give a flavorful taste to the doughy mixture.

Step 2:

Then remove heat and with a hand mixer, whisk the ingredients for a few minutes under medium speed and add ginger. It will give a savory gingery flavor to your old Salem cookies.

Step 4:

When the dough gets smooth and soft, place it on a greased baking pan. Cover the dough with a cloth and place it in the refrigerator to cool overnight. It will make the dough firm and will enhance the buttery flavor perfectly.

Step 5:

The next day, take out the baking tray and place the dough on a tray greased with flour. Then cut the dough into thin slices by giving desired shapes. It will ensure a strong gingery and buttery fragrance along with a crispy layer.

Step 6:

Then transfer the prepared thin cookie to a baking tray. After that, place the tray in a preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes under 220-degrees. Keep an eye on the upper layer of the cookies to prevent excessive cooking.
