Gingerbread White Chocolate Cookies
Oh, my. Gingerbread with white chocolate, yay! These Gingerbread White Chocolate Cookies are so delectable. Plus, they’re made with only five ingredients. They’re incredibly easy to make. If you want easy, simple, quick and delicious, this recipe is for you!
Okay, let me just say up front that I love a good gingerbread. I really love the tiny, miniature Gingerbread muffins from Jason’s Deli. Yes, I could eat 20 or 30 of them in one sitting and be as content as could be.
I’ve never found a super terrific recipe for gingerbread though. I would prefer a dense recipe like those muffins from Jason’s Deli, rather than a cakey, airy recipe. So if any of you out there have a gingerbread recipe you don’t mind sharing with me, please let me know!!!
I was looking for a super easy recipe to make for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this year. My husband was out grocery shopping and I asked him to look for any kind of cake mix that was not the usual stuff. I wanted to make something different. When he found one that was for Gingerbread, I said I’d take eight boxes! This box was two ounces short of the normal amount of mix in cake mixes. So along with eggs, canola oil and white chocolate chips, I added a little bit of flour to make up the difference.
The result was perfect. I didn’t want a runny cookie. These cookies held their shape really well. And did I say they taste great??? Be sure to find REAL white chocolate chips when you make this recipe. Not vanilla chips. Not premiere white baking chips. The only place in the Dallas Metroplex that carries white chocolate chips is Kroger and Trader Joe’s. Perhaps in your locale they are easier to locate.
Gingerbread White Chocolate Cookies are a dynamite, yet a super easy cookie recipe for Christmas cookie exchanges and holiday parties. If you just want to celebrate this time of year with a special treat, these cookies are a must! Eat two or three of them for me while you’re at it. 🙂

White chocolate and gingerbread are terrific together in this cookie.
Gingerbread White Chocolate Cookies are perfect for Christmas Cookie Exchanges or any party during the holidays.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients plus unbleached flour.
Pour gingerbread cake mix into a mixing bowl. Add eggs and canola oil. I would also add the flour now.
Stir to combine.
Add white chocolate chips.
Stir ingredients to combine. Because my mixture was too gooey, I added flour at this point. It made a big difference. The cookies weren’t runny that way. Gingerbread cake mixes have two ounces less than most cake mixes so the cake mix didn’t have the volume necessary, and needed a little flour to compensate.
Roll mixture into balls and place on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 about 13-15 minutes or until done. I was baking 4 racks at once with 24 cookies on each sheet, so my cookies took about 20-24 minutes to bake.
Here they are, ready to pack up for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza.
