Ginger Brown Sugar Cookies

These cookies were submitted to the cookie swap by my dear friend, Tori. I spent many mornings waking up to a cup of tea and a couple of these cookies. Thanks, Tori! Warning: Do not eat the crystallized ginger by itself : )!

1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger
2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Heat oven to 375 F. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, butter, vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, baking soda and gingers.
Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into 1-inch balls. On greased cookie sheet, place balls about 2 inches apart. Flatten to 1/2 inch thickness with greased bottom of glass dipped in 2 tablespoons granulated sugar.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are set. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool.
