Trust me when I tell you that you are going to love these white chocolate gingerbread cookies! They are soft and chewy and full of spicy gingerbread flavor.

I first saw these cookies awhile ago and saved the recipe to make at Christmas. When Zeke asked to make cookies a few weeks ago I sat down and looked through all the new-to-us recipes I had saved and these cookies stood out.

I am a big fan of anything gingerbread flavored, and any cookie recipe that promises to be soft and chewy is usually a safe choice. :) And these cookies did not disappoint! They really do have the perfect chewy texture and they stayed soft for days after I made them.

The cookies are full of gingerbread flavor with the perfect amount of spice. The kids loved them, but I haven’t yet found a cookie they wouldn’t eat so take that for what it’s worth. 😉

The white chocolate chips make these cookies very sweet, but if you prefer a less sweet cookie you could leave them out, or use chocolate chips or cinnamon chips instead. Next time I think I’ll make some of each kind and do a taste test to see which we like best. Yum!! :)
