Dipped Gingersnap Cookies

Kelly Lollman


These are the best gingersnaps ever!

Having never really liked crispy cookies, I "snapped" up this recipe for a soft version! There are always many requests for these and I make them every year for the holidays.

These freeze well, too, so you can have some on hand for company - just let them defrost for about 30 minutes.

About 12 dozen


20 Min


10 Min




2 c
granulated sugar
1 1/2 c
vegetable oil
2 large
1/2 c
4 c
all purpose flour
4 tsp
baking soda
1 Tbsp
ground ginger
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 tsp
24 oz
white chocolate chips
1/4 c
vegetable shortening
additional sugar for rolling dough balls

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the sugar and oil - mix well. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in molasses until fully incorporated.
Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl, blending well. Add the dry ingredients gradually into the wet mixture, about a cup at a time, until well blended. If using a hand mixer, the dough gets very stiff - I wind up mixing by hand about halfway through this process...
Form 3/4" balls and roll in the additional sugar. Place the balls about 2" apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet to allow for spreading. I flatten them slightly.
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until the cookies spring back when touched lightly. Remove to wire racks and cool completely.
Melt the white chocolate chips with shortening in a small saucepan over low heat. Dip the cooled cookies into the melted chocolate to cover half. Place dipped cookies on a sheet of wax paper or parchment to allow the chocolate to set up.
