Ingredients

  • 12 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (for rolling)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon canola or vegetable oil
  • Christmas sprinkles

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet by spraying with cooking spray, silpat liner, or parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, or bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and granulated sugar (1 cup).
  • Add in the egg and molasses. Blend together until combined. 
  • Add the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Blend together on low speed just until incorporated. 
  • Pour the 1/4 cup granulated sugar into a bowl or small plate. Take 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in the granulated sugar until it's completely covered. Place 12 per cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. I bake mine for the minimum time because they will continue to bake as they cool. 
  • Let cool on cookie sheet for 30 minutes. Drizzle with melted white chocolate and immediatley sprinkle the Christmas sprinkles over top. 
  • Move the cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely and to let the chocolate harden. 
  • **** To melt white chocolate chips : Place the white chocolate chips plus oil in a microwave-safe bowl (I use a glass measurer). Set the timer for 90 seconds and stir it every 30 seconds until it's completely melted and smooth. 

Notes

They make a 'lightly flavored' molasses, so if you're more sensitive to that flavor then be sure and use it. I used it for this recipe and all my kids loves these cookies. Even the 2 year old!
