Ginger Sandwich Cookies with White Chocolate Filling

Made with spice and everything (chocolate-y) nice!

Spices
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves 
 Ingredients
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • cup unrefined light molasses (or dark)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup castor sugar
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup baking white chocolate droplets (or shavings)

Yummy white chocolate oOze...

Directions
  1. Sift flour, spices, baking soda and salt in large bowl and set aside
  2. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  3. Add in egg and light molasses while continue beating
  4. Gradually add flour mixture. Beat at low speed until well blended
  5. Divide dough in half and wrap each half in plastic cling wrap
  6. Best to refrigerate overnight or at least 2 hours. I kept mine for 4 hours and it's pretty firm :)
  7. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to  inch thick
  8. Use a floured cookie cutter to cut out cookies and place the pieces on lined baking tray
  9. Preheat oven to 170°C. Bake each tray for about 10 minutes depending on the size and thickness of the cookies. If you use a similar star-shaped cookie cutter, leave in for another 3 minutes for a more crispy edge. Personal preference :)
  10. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely
  11. Fill a microvable bowl with white chocolate bits and microwave for 1 minute. Whisk the warm and slightly melted white chocolate until smooth
  12. Pipe the melted white chocolate generously on the flipside of one gingerbread cookie and press another on top to make a perfect balance of sweet and spicy Christmas bite!

  2. Tried this minus the chocolate cause I'm trying to slim down.

    Sweetness is just nice.

    Texture is slightly gritty. Crunchy to the bite. Gives just a hint of the aroma of ginger, yet not overpowering like most other ginger cookies.

    Overall, a very good balance between taste, smell, and texture.

    I recommend to try this.

  3. This looks good. I think I'd try to make the cookies a little thinner but they look really nice. Love the centre filling.

  4. Hi Sarah! You are absolutely right, I should make it thinner the next round to taste more of the filling :)
