Chewy White Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

There is nothing like the flavors of ginger, cinnamon, and molasses at Christmas time.  They are such warm, spicy flavors that pair nicely with a cup of eggnog and twinkling tree lights.

Gingerbread cookies are usually hard, crunchy cookies, but I really prefer a soft and chewy texture.  I used brown sugar and molasses to create that same festive flavor in a chewy cookie. They turned out incredibly well! I think they are my daughter and husband’s favorite cookies!

The white chocolate and sprinkle decor on top is totally optional, as the cookies are delicious all on their own. It It sure adds a nice holiday touch though ;) Enjoy!
