Coarse sugar coats these delightful cookies, giving them an icy glow. Baking them just until the edges begin to firm up delivers chewy cookies; for crispier results, bake until the tops are firm too, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Keep in mind that these cookies harden while cooling, so it pays not to bake them until they're overly crisp.

Use our Basic Ginger Cookie Dough recipe.
Place sugar in shallow dish. Roll dough by scant 1 tbsp into balls; roll in sugar to coat. Place, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper-lined rimless baking sheets; press tops to flatten slightly.
Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 350°F (180°C) oven just until edges are firm to the touch, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on pans on racks for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool completely.
Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and store for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.
