These Soft Gingerbread Cookies with White Chocolate are just the perfect holiday treat! Dairy-free & Delicious!
Merry Christmas! Can’t believe it’s the end of the year already. Seem like yesterday we were both ill and watching last year’s fireworks from our living room and freezing in the brutally cold winter, and here we are again. As I am writing this it’s Christmas’ Eve morning, the sun is finally showing after a couple days of fog, and I have a family lunch to prepare in just minutes, but I wanted to share these beautiful cookies with you and wish you peaceful holidays before I sign off.
I’ve said before, but making cookies is something I usually do not particularly enjoy. I rarely make cookies. Like, I will do it once a year for holidays, and that’s it. The whole process to me is just tiresome. Making the dough is the easy part. Waiting for the dough to set, I can take that. Cutting cookies, not so much. And then baking them, that takes some time as well. But then spending hours decorating them as well? Not my cup of tea.
That’s why I love simple cookie recipes, like these Soft Gingerbread Cookies with White Chocolate. The dough comes together in no time at all. There is some chilling involved, but you can do other things while the dough is setting…. then just take a spoon, scoop out a bit of dough, roll it into a ball, press down and that’s the cookie shaped!
I baked these cookies 2 trays simultaneously, so I only had one baking batch to make, so that was just to my taste.
And because it’s Christmas and I am feeling festive, I even decorated them, which is so not my style! I got some delicious white chocolate (use vegan to keep the recipe dairy-free!), that I just melted and dunked the cookies in the chocolate, then sprinkled some festive sugar pearls on top, and that’s it!
Doesn’t it just look like Christmas? And well, not to mention the taste. I LOVE gingerbread. I’ve been making everything gingerbread-flavored, like this absolutely amazing Gingerbread Hazelnut Granola. And when would we enjoy the gingerbread flavor, if not at Christmas, right?
So, I hope you like this recipe and get to spend these holidays with the ones you love. We are now off cooking and enjoying Christmas. And don’t forget to indulge in some hot cocoa and these Soft Gingerbread Cookies this evening. It is Christmas, after all.
