Gingerdoodle Cookies are chewy, soft cookies that taste like a cross between a gingersnap and a snickerdoodle. Add this to your baking list ASAP! You’ll love the texture of the cookies, but more importantly the molasses flavor with the cinnamon, ginger, and cloves is irresistible!
I just can’t wait another day to share this recipe for Gingerdoodle Cookies.
You may first be asking yourself, what are gingerdoodle cookies? Perhaps this will help…imagine a chewy gingersnap cookie combined with a soft snickerdoodle. Then dunk it in white chocolate. OMG these are seriously so amazing!
I first tried this recipe from I Heart Naptime over Christmas. I figured it seemed quite seasonal, gingerbread and all. Well, after my whole family fell in love, we decided these are the new chocolate chip cookies in our house. And that’s saying a lot as my husband and girls LOVE chocolate chip cookies!
And if we’re being honest, I’m not really a gingerbread cookie person. I love gingersnaps, frozen (weird, I know). I love the crunch to them. But soft gingersnaps? No thank you. I’d rather eat these Gingerbread flavored Krispie Treats, or this Gingerbread Fudge!
Until I tried this delicious cookie. And please, for the love of all things delicious, do not skip the white chocolate. It truly adds an amazing touch to an already wonderful cookie.
So, since it’s not really Christmas, and I probably shouldn’t be sharing a gingerdoodle cookie recipe in January, we dressed these cookies up for Valentine’s Day and Spring. I mean. Why not?
