White Chocolate Chip Ginger Cookies

I came up with this recipe when I wanted a ginger cookie and didn't have any molasses. This has a delicate flavor, not as strong as your typical ginger cookie or gingerbread, but the vanilla chips give it a great creamy richness that complements the spice. It makes an excellent Christmas cookie, and 1 cup of walnuts can be added for another layer of flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1 (12 ounce) bag vanilla chips

Directions

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

  2. Beat butter and sugar together in a large bowl until creamy. Add egg and vanilla extract; mix well.

  3. Whisk flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, and cloves together in another bowl. Beat flour mixture into butter mixture until dough is just-combined. Stir vanilla chips into dough. Drop dough by the 1/8-cup full 2-inches apart on a baking sheet.

  4. Bake cookies in the preheated oven until golden and soft, 10 to 11 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
