STEP 1. Pre-heat oven to 375°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

STEP 3. Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt and mix until combined.

STEP 4. Using a medium cookie scoop (or about 2 Tablespoons), roll the cookie dough into a ball. Place the granulated sugar and cinnamon into a bowl and mix together. Roll the dough into the cinnamon sugar. Place on the baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 7 to 8 minutes until the edges are firm. Allow to cool on the pan for 2 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. Cool completely.

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! You could also make these Gingerbread Cookie Bars. Topped with a cream cheese frosting, what’s not to love?

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.

Comments & Reviews

  1. My six year old son and I are just finishing up baking a double batch. He is eating them plain and loves them. My husband and I love them tool However, he (my son) is looking forward to dipping and decorating with sprinkles.

  2. My sister and I made these last year on our “cookie baking day”.   They are AMAZING!! Everyone loved them.   We decided they are on the list to be made annually.  They are so soft and full of flavor.  The white chocolate just adds an extra goodness.   Thanks for the recipe!  

  3. These gingerdoodles will be a fun holiday cookies recipe to try for my daughter’s cookie exchange. Pinning to try very soon.

  4. Did this at the last minute for a cookie exchange in my office for Christmas. Boy were these a hit!! They can be dipped in the chocolate for extra sweetness and with or without sprinkles of the season! These cookies are GREAT with or without the chocolate. They are so soft & simple. Now I have to make them for my husband’s cookie exchange… (he tasted them and said this was my new cookie to bake ALL the time! – take THAT chocolate chips!!) Thank you thank you thank you for saving me!

  5. Is 2 tsp. baking soda correct? That seems like a lot to me. We don’t care for sprinkles either. Haha! Our son said he didn’t like the texture of them. I think they are cute though on cupcakes but don’t use them.
