White Chocolate Cookies Recipe

During the winter months, I enjoy the classic gingerbread spices cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and allspice. Years ago, I received a recipe card featuring a recipe for gingerbread cookies dipped in melted white chocolate. I can’t believe I waited until now to bake it.

The original instructions call for kneading the dough on a floured work surface which I decided to change.

I used my stand mixer. Preparing the dough in a stand mixer bowl with the dough hook attachment makes dough mixing a breeze. The dough requires chilling for a couple of hours before rolling it out and cutting into shapes. Once the cookies have cooled, they’re ready to be frosted. Oh, yeah. The frosting is optional, but I highly recommend it.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup 2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 12 ounces white chocolate baking squares
  • 1/4 cup organic shortening

Instructions

  1. Combine the molasses, water, vanilla and egg in a small bowl. Set aside.

  2. In a stand mixer bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and allspice.

  3. Cut in the butter with a fork, knife, or pastry blender.

  4. Add the molasses mixture to the bowl and beat the ingredients with a dough hook attachment until a dough forms. Beat for 5-7 minutes, to knead the dough properly. Remove the dough from the bowl, shape it into a ball, wrap the dough with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 hours.

  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  6. Roll the dough out between two sheets of waxed paper to 1/8-inch thick. The dough will be cold and a little sticky. Cut the dough with cookie cutters and place on baking sheets. Gather up leftover dough into a ball; roll out the dough to 1/8-inch thickeness, cut with cookie cutters, repeating the process until all of the dough has been cut. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool the cookies completely.

Recipe Notes

Make the white chocolate coating: Melt the white chocolate chips and shortening together in a saucepan. Dip half of each cookie into the chocolate, and place it on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper to harden.
