A perfectly soft molasses cookie recipe is essential for the holidays, but these white chocolate molasses cookies take things to a whole new level.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter shortening or lard (we usually do half and half)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • white chocolate baking melts found by the chocolate chips or in kitchen stores like Orson Gygi SEE NOTE*
  • Sugar for rolling the dough

Instructions

  • In a standing mixer add the shortening and sugar and beat until smooth.
  • Add the egg and molasses and beat again until well incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, seasonings, salt and baking soda.
  • Turn the mixer back on and slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  • Mix well and cover tightly with saran wrap.
  • Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Using heaping tablespoons, flatten a little dough in your hand and place two baking melts in the dough.
  • Roll the dough around the chocolate and roll in the sugar.
  • Place on a baking sheet and either wrap with saran wrap and refrigerate until ready to bake or bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Allow to cool slightly and enjoy!

Notes

If you cannot find the baking melts you can buy the white almond bark and chop into small chunks and use that.
