Nicely spiced, these White Chocolate Ginger Molasses Cookies are soft, chewy, and smell just like the holidays.
The holiday season just isn’t complete without at least one batch of spice cookies.
I have a recipe for dipped gingersnaps that is a holiday staple at our house. The combination of spicy ginger and white chocolate is absolutely amazing! I wanted to come up with a cookie that had the same flavors, but that was a little easier to prepare. Because dipping cookies is a little time consuming when you are making ten dozen to give as gifts!
I found a recipe for molasses white chocolate cookies at Sweet Recipeas and decided to give it a try. Instead of dipping the cookies in white chocolate, they are filled with white chocolate chips. All of the flavor without the work! I made a few changes to the original recipe, and they turned out just as yummy as I imagined.
I love how the deep flavor of the molasses compliments the sweet white chocolate. And the addition of oats gives them a nice crunch. These molasses cookies are a perfect holiday treat, and they make your house smell just like Christmas!
