These soft molasses cookies are made even tastier with the addition of white chocolate. It is a perfect balance to the spicy ginger, and oats add a nice crunch. A wonderful update on a classic cookie recipe!
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. Crispy on the edges, but soft and chewy in the middle.
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!
