White Chocolate Gingerbread Thumbprint Cookies

 

My boys are big fans of gingerbread and these soft and chewy White Chocolate Gingerbread Thumbprint Cookies are a hit with the young and old alike!

It’s only the second week in November and already our holiday calendar is filling up fast! The festive season has a way of doing that doesn’t it? It’s a fun but extremely busy time and to keep the stress away so we can focus on play, I like to try to keep organized and do as much as possible ahead of time. From gift shopping, Christmas card prepping and holiday baking, the earlier I can get it done the better!

1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses

Gradually add dry mixture to wet ingredients, beating on low speed until well mixed.

Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight is fine.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar to lightly coat. 

Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. I like to use silicon mats when baking so nothing sticks.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges of cookies just begin to brown.

Immediately make an indent in the tops of the cookies, I like to use the handle of my wooden spoon for this. I don’t encourage you to actually use your thumb for a thumbprint cookie, because – hot!

You can push a few white chocolate chips directly into the hot cookie, but I find that these don’t melt completely and I like my cookies to look pretty! 

Place white chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave for 15-30 second intervals, stirring in between, to melt.

Spoon melted chocolate into the indents in the cookie tops.
