{VIDEO} Chewy, White Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Cookies

Chewy, White Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Cookies full of warm holiday spices with a perfect crispy edge and chewy center.





These are the perfect holiday cookie for the season!



Thick, chewy and studded with sweet white chocolate chips.


To make my White Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Cookies, we start by beating together the softened butter and sugars, and the wet ingredients.


Last, slowly add the flour mixture just until it’s incorporated. 


Now we get to add my favorite part, the white chocolate chips!



I used 2 cups (a 12oz. bag), but you can use 1 1/2 cups if you don't want as many morsels. 



Scoop the dough into balls and refrigerate for at least 2 hours so they firm up and all the flavors start to develop so we get a nice thick flavorful cookie.



You can make the dough in advance too and freeze the dough balls, so you can bake them up the day you need them, for fresh out of the oven cookies in 10 minutes! 


When you’re ready to bake them, roll the dough between your palms and then coat the outside in some sugar and festive sprinkles if you want to jazz them up.




Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven, for about 8-10 minutes or until edges just start to set. 


Let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes on the baking sheet so the centers can set up. Then transfer to a cooling rack.
