Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
You will need:
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper (you can substitute black pepper)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil ( I like grapeseed oil)
1/2 cup very warm tap water
Place flour, sugar, ginger, baking soda, white pepper and salt in a mixing bowl and mix with hands for 15-30 seconds until well combined. Add water and oil. Mix with hands or rubber spatula until dough is well incorporated. Set aside and let rest for 10 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use cookie scoop to scoop 12 cookies onto cookie sheet. Leave 2 inches between each cookie. Bake in oven for 15-18 minutes. Cookies should be golden brown. Remove from oven and allow cookies to completely cool.
Cookie glaze: 1 cup confectioners sugar + 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger + 2 1/2 teaspoons water. Mix until smooth. Drizzle cookies. Refrigerate leftovers.
