1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp ground ginger
1/4 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger* 

Beat together butter and sugar until creamy.  Beat in egg and molasses.  
Combine flour, baking soda and ginger in a small bowl; stir into butter 
mixture.  Roll into two disks, wrap in wax paper and refrigerate for one hour.

On a lightly floured surface roll one disk to 1/4 inch thick.  Cut out 
cookies. Transfer to ungreased cookie sheets.  Chill for 10 minutes, then 
bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool on wire racks.

While cooling, make frosting:
2 cups confectioners sugar

Blend powdered sugar, egg white and warm warm in a bowl; beat on high 
for 7 minutes until smooth with a honey-like consistency.  Spread over 
cooled cookies.
