Gingerbread Cookie Recipe

As you guys can probably tell from the rest of my blog I LOOOVVVEEE making cookies in the house! There is something so nice about making a delicious little snackum and smelling freshly baked cookies when you walk into the house. I am going home for the holidays (New York!) so I didn't want to go totally crazy and make too many cookies in the home. I decided to try a soft gingerbread cookie recipe and they are super good. What is nice is that you can leave them plain or dip them in anything you want! As a lover of white chocolate, I followed the direct recipe and then sprinkled them with little star sprinkles!

  1. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt.)
  2. Cream the 170 grams of butter and 1 cup sugar.
  3. Add the egg and beat until fully combined. 
  4. Add the orange juice and molasses until combined.
  5. Add in the dry ingredients in small batches until it forms a nice dough. 
  6. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, if you can’t at least put it in the freezer for a half an hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  8. In about 2 tablespoon balls, roll into the 1/4 cup sugar and flatten so it looks like the thickness of a double stuff Oreo, really thick but clearly flattened.
  9. Bake for 9-11 minutes. As dough is dark just make sure to check them with your finger and don't overbake! 
  10. If desired, melt some white chocolate over a low heat. Add a spoon of butter and splash of milk until the chocolate forms a nice thick consistency. Dip each cookie and dust with sprinkles as needed.
