Double chocolate, double ginger cookies

Double chocolate, double ginger cookies
From: taxi78cab, who says:

"...(I)inspired by the success of the crystalized ginger in the chocolate chip cookies last week, plus thoughts of Trader Joe's triple gingersnaps, plus Haze's lesbian chocolate gingerbread, I invented double chocolate, double ginger cookies. They were AMAZING!"

3/4 C butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 C sugar
1 egg
1/4 C molasses
1 3/4 C flour
1/4 C cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 Tbsp powdered ginger
1 tsp cinnamon (I used this but it's probably optional... so much going on that it really isn't noticeable.)
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 C chocolate chips
1 C small chunks of crystalized ginger

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in egg and molasses.

Mix together dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, spices, baking soda, and salt). Add a quarter at a time to the butter mixture and stir to combine. Repeat until all flour is incorporated.

Stir in chips and crystalized ginger. Mix to combine.

Drop by tablespoonful onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 min.
