Gingerdoodle Cookies are chewy, soft cookies that taste like a cross between a gingersnap and a snickerdoodle. You’ll love the texture of the cookies, but more importantly the molasses flavor with the cinnamon, ginger, and cloves is irresistible!
How to Make Soft Molasses Cookies
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!
These soft molasses cookies have a crackly top and the perfect amount of CHEW!
- Unsalted butter- make sure it’s softened to room temperature. Use our guide on how to soften butter quickly.
- Brown sugar- I use light brown since you will be adding molasses you don’t need dark brown (but you can use it if you prefer).
- Molasses- I usually choose a dark molasses. Blackstrap molasses is too intense for baking in my opinion. Grandma’s brand is what I find at most grocery stores.
- Spices- a good blend of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves is needed.
- Cinnamon sugar- I make my own cinnamon sugar mix for rolling the cookies in before baking. But you can buy it premixed at the store too.
- White Chocolate- Ghirardelli white chocolate melting wafers are my favorite. They taste great and melt smooth in the microwave without seizing up!
Soft molasses cookies are so easy to make.
- Make the cookie dough.
- Roll cookies into balls.
- Roll cookie dough balls into cinnamon sugar mix.
- Bake and cool. Dip in white chocolate and add sprinkles, if desired.
The molasses in these chewy ginger cookies gives a sweet flavor that keeps them moist and soft.
Store baked and cooled ginger molasses cookies in airtight freezer safe container for up to 3 months. Thaw on counter in container overnight.
Dark Molasses is my favorite choice for baking. Blackstrap molasses is too intense for most recipes.
