Gingerbread Cookies Cut in Fun Star Shapes

I never used to care for homemade gingerbread cookies, that was until I made these soft gingerbread cookies. They totally changed my opinion on gingerbread men.

Before I used to think of them as more of a decoration and now they are a cookie I actually love to make and eat.

So since I loved them so much this year I made them with the same dough but cut into star shapes and added the white chocolate, because gingerbread and white chocolate is the perfect flavor combination.

Seriously, match made in Heaven.

These cookies have plenty of spice and molasses flavor and they’re just perfectly festive. Especially with the finishing touch of shimmery white sprinkles.

I chose to do half of the cookies drizzled with the chocolate and half I dipped in chocolate because I liked the look of the combo but do whichever you like, just be sure to have enough white chocolate if you go the dipping route.

Let White Chocolate Set Before Serving or Storing

And definitely let the white chocolate set up fully before you start stacking and plating them otherwise they’ll get smeared and stick together.

And if you’d like you can also add some Christmas colored sprinkles on them because you can never go wrong with those pretty little sprinkles.
