Soft Ginger Snap Cookies!

The holidays are coming and I absolutely love this time of year!

A festive time of year calls for festive desserts 🙂 These cookies are so good!

This recipe is easy and only requires one bowl + mixer (or if you have a kitchen aid, one appliance). I always appreciate that because of the clean up, not to mention this is a thick batter, which can be a bit of a work out.

Now, the white chocolate chips are optional, but what I do like about their addition, is that the sweetness is a perfect counter balance to the warm spice that the ginger, cloves, and cinnamon bring.

I highly recommend that you try this recipe this holiday season. Make and bring them to a holiday party, I promise they will be a hit!

  1. Step 1: Using a hand mixer or kitchen aid, Cream together the butter and sugar.
  2. Step 2: With the mixer on low, add in all of the following ingredients. The order does not matter. Canola oil, molasses, vanilla, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, ground cloves, and ginger. Mix until all combined.
  3. Step 3: With the mixer on low, crack and add in 1 egg at a time, just until gently broken up as the eggs do not need to mix in completely.
  4. Step 4: With the mixer on low, slowly start adding in your flour. Let the mixer do the work here, it will take about 1 minute to add in your flour.
  5. Step 5: By hand, stir in the white chocolate chips. This does take some arm muscle due to the thick batter.
  6. Step 6: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  7. Step 7: On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, and a cookie scoop, add the cookie dough on to the baking sheet. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  8. Step 8: Once done, remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack
Recipe Notes
  • you may be tempted to leave the cookies in longer than 8-9 minutes, but it's completely ok to pull them out, because they are supposed to be soft and chewy 🙂
