Description

A perfect fall dessert, these ginger spice cookies are amazing by themselves but even better when dipped into this creamy pumpkin dip. Make this at your next party and you are guaranteed to have the favorite dessert!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE COOKIES:
  • 1-½ cup Butter, Softened
  • 2 cups Granulated Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ½ cups Molasses
  • 4 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • Additional Sugar For Rolling
  • FOR THE DIP:
  • 1 package (8 Oz. Size) Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 can (18 Oz. Size) Pumpkin Pie Mix
  • 2 cups Confectioners Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Ginger

Preparation

Preheat oven 375ºF.

For the cookies:
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Once combined, add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add molasses and mix well.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Add flour mixture slowly in additions to creamed mixture and mix well.

Chill overnight or for at least 2 hours. Shape chilled dough into 1/2-inch balls, and roll in sugar until coated.

Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375ºF for 6 minutes or until edges are browned (I always take them out earlier so they are chewy not crunchy).

For the dip:
Beat cream cheese in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Add pumpkin pie mix, and beat well. Add sugar, cinnamon and ginger, beating until smooth. Chill until ready to serve.

This recipe makes a HUGE batch of cookies! The smaller the better in my opinion, so you can make up to 100 cookies with this recipe!

I made these cookies over the weekend. They were superb! I made about 60 little bite-sized chewy cookies! A huge hit amongst the young and old. Thank you so much for sharing (maybe next time I’ll actually get to make the dip).
