Instructions Checklist
  • Beat together the butter with 1 cup of sugar in a mixing bowl until the mixture is smooth, and stir in beaten egg and molasses. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt; stir the flour mixture into the molasses mixture by half cupfuls. Stir in the white chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Scoop up a generous spoonful of dough, and roll it into a ball. Roll the ball in sugar, place onto an ungreased baking sheet, and flatten slightly. Sprinkle a little sugar onto the cookie, if desired. Repeat for the rest of the cookies.

  • Bake the cookies in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for about 1 minute before removing to finish cooling on racks.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

OMG! These are delicious! Heavily spiced and they get better with age. Don't roll in sugar. I did half rolled in sugar and half not and everyone liked the unrolled ones better. The sugar masks the gingerbread taste and they are plenty sweet without it. A keeper especially for fall and the winter holidays. YUM! Read More

I followed the recipe and these did not come out good at all. I had to throw away the entire batch. They burnt on the outside and were too doughy on the inside. I am not sure where I went wrong with these but I certainly won't be attempting to make them again. Read More

These are super delicious and chewy. The first time I made them (as written) they fell apart because there were so many chocolate chips, so I halved the amount in the second batch and they stayed together much better. These are a little hard to get off the cookie sheet without mutilating them, so I used parchment paper and just slid the entire sheet off of the cookie sheet until they cooled and they turned out great.

Tried these out even though it sounds like a Christmas cookie. Brought them to work and two batches were devoured. I would suggest to nix the last step of rolling dough in more sugar as this cookie is sweet enough to kill a diabetic. Next time I make it I will cut some sugar. They were pretty tasty. Read More

These are so great! I did applesauce instead of butter and 3 tbsp 3/4 tsp of Truvia and 1/2 cup sugar instead of 1 whole cup and they turned out delicious! Didn't roll in the sugar either. I highly recommend. My friends and co-workers loved them. I will definitely be making them again. Read More

This was an easy to make and hot seller at my bake sale. I sold out the first day so I made a second batch with butterscotch chips. An even more outstanding combination and I didn't roll them in sugar either. They are on the sweet side so I made a batch with out the chips and they were good rolled in sugar. I recommend chilling the dough in a log shape with plastic wrap store in your fridge to have handy for a quick batch of cookies! They make a great crispy cookie (with out the chips) if you make them smaller and cook them longer. Otherwise they are a wonderful chewy and spicy cookie! Read More

As someone who usually doesn't like white chocolate and who really doesn't care for gingerbread at all I can honestly say that these are hands-down the best cookies I've ever eaten. I brought about three dozen of them into my office and within a few hours they were completely gone with my coworkers eagerly asking for me to bring more in as soon as I could! These cookies are like nothing else on Earth! Read More

Yum yum and yum. I followed the recipe exactly as written except I left off the last step of rolling in the sugar as recommended (they are really sweet without it). I baked my cookies about 9 minutes and they were perfect. My husband wasn't thrilled when I told him what cookies I was baking but that all changed when he tasted one. He loves them!! Read More

I've made these dozens of times and EVERY time someone says," Oh, I don't like gingerbread cookies" but without fail they do like these ones. They are SO delicious. I don't change anything. Sometimes I use the raw sugar to roll them in and that works nicely too. Read More
