White Chocolate Dipped Ginger Cookies . . .with plenty of spicy ginger and a coating of white chocolate, these are the perfect holiday cookie!
These dipped gingersnaps are definitely one of my most requested Christmas recipes. We give them out to friends and family for Christmas and they are a huge hit. In fact, if we happen to give out something else, I always have a few people
complain call and tell me how much they missed them.
I was in high school when I tasted my first homemade gingersnap. A neighbor brought it to a church party. After just one bite, I was in love. It was soft and chewy, perfectly spiced, and covered in sugar. So yummy. I made sure to get her recipe, and I have never found a better one!
After making them a couple times, I tried dipping a batch in melted white chocolate. The sweet creamy chocolate with the spicy ginger cookie is a match made in heaven. A new favorite cookie was born, and I have never looked back. These are seriously amazing cookies!
I like to make these cookies on the smaller size so it is easier to dip them. You can definitely make them bigger, but you will need to increase the cooking time by a minute or two.
- 1 cup oil
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 4 cups + 2 Tbsp flour
- 4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- Sugar for rolling
- 3 cups white chips (I use Guittard brand)
- 3 Tbsp oil or shortening
- Beat oil, sugar, eggs, and molasses in a large mixing bowl. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Stir into the sugar mixture till well combined. Roll dough into small balls and roll in sugar.
- Bake on lightly greased cookie sheets at 350° for about 6-7 minutes. Cool completely.
- Combine chips and oil in a small glass bowl. Microwave at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Dip cookies halfway into the white chocolate and lay on parchment paper or silicone pan liners till set.
-When you get to the last of the cookies, it will be hard to dip them. You can just spread the chocolate over the top of them, kind of like frosting.
