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.
