These are quite possibly the best cookies I have ever made. My kids keep begging for more. They are easy, delicious, and beautiful. The tops are all crackled and sparkly from the sugar. I did not dip in the white chocolate, but I might on the ones that I'm freezing. They are so good. Try this recipe, you won't be disappointed!

I found this on Taste of home a few years ago and have been making them ever since. Great flavor and most of the time I just leave out the dipping part. They are just as good.

Thanks for posting this recipe--now I don't have to worry about losing my hard copy! I started making these cookies several years ago after seeing them in TOH magazine. Not sure why I made them that first time because I don't generally care for gingersnaps, and I do NOT like white chocolate. But, one bite of these tender delicacies, and I was hooked! The combination of the ginger cookie and the white chocolate is perfect. I made them last year for a cookie exchange, and when a couple friends found out I wasn't planning on making them for this year's exchange, they asked me if I would reconsider. :)

Fabulous! I was looking for a good gingersnap recipe, and actually made these without dipping in white chocolate. The cookies were wonderful and very pretty. Crisp but not rock hard, a great texture. Makes a large batch, and I like that it uses oil rather than butter. Stored well, both in a covered container at room temperature and in the freezer. Dipping the cookies in white chocolate would absolutely put them over the top, and I'll definitely try it next time. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This has been my "go to" gingersnap recipe since I discovered it in TOH years ago. I always add some extra ginger and I never bother to dip them. I also never get anywhere near 14 dozen. We love these! They make great ice cream sandwiches too!

I had never made gingersnaps before but the picture looked so delicious, I was ready to try. WOW! They were so awesome, I couldn't stop tasting them. Then, when I dipped them in white chocolate, they were over the top. I didn't get 14 dozen but who cares. They were awesome and everyone loved them. What a great recipe!

I'd never made gingersnaps until I tried this recipe. I figured I needed something gingery on my Christmas cookie platters this year. I have to admit....when I tasted the dough, I was not impressed. Yuck..I didn't like. But put those wonderful sugar coated cookie balls into the oven and they magically transform into a wonderful bite of heaven! I immediately got out the goods to make another batch....just so I wouldn't have to share! Definately a keeper around here...and my friends and family loved them! I used my pampered chef cookie scoop and only got 7 dozen instead of 14...but it was ALL good! Thanks for the great recipe!

LOVED these, I actually just make the cookie without the white chocolate and serve them with a pumpkin dip. YUMMY!
