White Chocolate Dipped Gingerdoodles


White Chocolate Dipped Gingerdoodles… so soft and full of flavor! The ultimate Christmas cookie!

I had to squeeze in one last Christmas cookie this year. Gingerdoodles, gingersnaps, ginger cookies, molassis cookies are just a few names I’ve heard these cookies called, but gingerdoodles are my favorite. Mainly because they remind me of snickerdoodle with all the delicious Christmas flavors mixed in.

My friend made these for our church party last week and everyone loved them. Two hundred of them, to be exact (she is a saint). When she gave me the recipe, I realized that it was from my cousin who lives all across the United States. Such a small world! It’s been years since I’ve made her recipe and I couldn’t wait to whip up a batch again. I ended up cutting the recipe in half, since the original makes 4 dozen. Feel free to double this one though if you will be making them for a crowd! They are seriously the best ginger cookies I’ve ever had. If there is one cookie you make this week, make these!

These cookies have a slight crisp around the edges and are super soft in the middle. Just they way I like my cookies. The white chocolate also adds the perfect touch.

Here are a few variations for White Chocolate Dipped Gingerdoodles:

  1. Bake them rolled in sugar and enjoy them as is. If making these plain, you can put the dough in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before baking to make them bake a little fluffier.

2. Drizzle white chocolate over the top.

4. Add holly berries to the white chocolate

There are lots of fun ways to decorate these Gingerdoodle cookies. I personally love the white chocolate dip and my kids loved the dip with sprinkles (of course).

  1. Wow, these are insanely cute! So perfect for gifting!

  2. Yummy, this is a fun take on one of my fave cookies! xo Loren

  3. Just need a cup of tea. Can’t wait to make these.

  4. Can these be frozen? I’m making them for a Christmas party on Friday and am having surgery on my right hand Tuesday so I want to make them today (Sunday) or Monday.

  5. These are a quick and easy recipe and turned out great! Chewy with a good amount of spice and made even better with the dunk in white chocolate!

  6. Is the brown sugar packed or is it just a cup of brown sugar. Thanks! Can’t wait to make these.

  7. I made these and they came out tasting like there is to much baking soda. Is the 2 teaspoons correct?

  8. Can unsalted butter work as well? If so, how much more salt do I add to adjust?

  9. Just wondering if you can freeze the dough to bake later. These look divine! :)

    • Hi Janice! I haven’t tried freezing this dough but it should work great. I would recommend rolling them into balls, freezing on a cookie sheet and then storing them in an airtight container. When you are ready to bake, pull them out of the fridge for 15-20 minutes and roll in the sugar. Hope you enjoy these! :)

  10. Decided to try these cookies because they are so cute. These cookies are just as awesome as they look. I have made several batches to give to friends for Christmas. All have said that they love them! I would definitely give this recipe 5 stars!

  11. I made these cookies and they are delicious!  Everybody loved them!!

  12. How did you get the green holly to stay on the cookie. I see the red is stuck to white icing. Thanks Paula in KY

  13. Can the dough be chilled before rolling into balls? I found the dough very soft and messy to work with especially without a cookie scoop. I am wondering if chilling would change the texture. Otherwise they are delicious.

  14. I was SO excited about this recipe. I am a baker. Followed your recipe to a T… but had no crackle top. Only had a dome, no pretty cookies. Don’t know if I will use this recipe again, sadly. :-( I had photos, but don’t see a way to post them?

  15. I made these cookies and they were a huge hit! I baked for 8 minutes and dipped in white chocolate!  I was able to get 3 dozen per batch.  I needed 19 dozen for a few cookie swaps.  Will definitely make again next Christmas!

  16. I made these for the first time this Christmas. I took a plate to our pharmacist and his staff, they have been great little elves this year. He raved about them and told my husband they are his new favourite Christmas cookies. We loved them too, making again very soon. Cheers!

  17. We loved these even tho I ran out of Ginger ,subbed nutmeg and more cinnamon . Getting it tomorrow .Made a double batch got 6 dozen cookies

  18. Just made these, and my children devoured them!!! It’s snowing here. So, we decided to make two more batches. They are so, so good!!!

  19. Fantastic recipe!!! Everyone loved them and asked when I would be making a second batch. Thanks for sharing 😊

  20. I wanted to let you know, I have a Grandson in 4th grade who is so picky he seldom eats anything , BUT he LOVES these cookies! Thanks for giving me something I can bake that he likes! <3
