Day Eleven: Chewy White Chocolate Chip Ginger Cookies Recipe

Day 11 of the PammiCakes 12 Days of Christmas Indulgences brings you Chewy White Chocolate Chip Ginger Cookies.  These cookies are sugar and spice and everything nice!

I love how ginger works so well in savory and sweet foods.  The ginger in these cookies is complemented nicely with the creamy white chocolate chips.  I made these cookies extra big, plus they are soft and chewy.  Enjoy!

Chewy White Chocolate Ginger Cookies Recipe
Recipe Modified from A Farm Girls Dabbles
Preheat oven to 350°

3/4 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 large egg
1/4 c. molasses
2 c. all-purpose unbleached flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 cup white chocolate chips
sugar, for rolling dough balls in

Beat butter and sugar until creamy.  Add egg and molasses and beat until well mixed.  

Combine all the dry ingredients in one bowl and stir well.  Add wet ingredients until well combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Chill dough for at least 2 hours or overnight, as the dough is quite sticky.  Roll dough into 1″ balls and then roll the balls in sugar.  Place sugared dough balls on parchment lined baking sheet and bake until cracks form on top of the cookie, about 8 to 10 minutes (Mine took about 15 minutes because I made mine cookies about 1.5’’).  

Remove from the oven and let sit on the baking sheet for a few minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
