White Chocolate-Dipped Ginger Cookies

I was introduced to these cookies a year or so ago and instantly fell in love. I mean, how can you resist a chewy ginger cookie dipped in white chocolate?? These are basically Christmas in cookie form and you really need them in your life.
I was also pleasantly surprised with how easy they were to make. The cookies came together in no time and once they were cooled they were so easy to dip in chocolate and decorate with sprinkles.
If you're looking for the perfect holiday cookie that will please an entire crowd, look no further. I promise you'll want to make these every year once you try them.

Adapted from I Heart Naptime
Makes 24 Cookies
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 cup granulated sugar (for rolling on the cookies)
12 oz. white chocolate melting wafers or almond bark (for dipping the cookies)
holiday sprinkles, if desired

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat mat or parchment paper and set aside.
2. Combine the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Cream for one minute or until fluffy.  
Add in the egg and beat until smooth. Next add in the molasses and mix until combined.
3. Place the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt into a large bowl and whisk until combined. Then add to the butter mixture. Mix just until combined. Be careful not to overmix. Refrigerate dough for 10 minutes. 
4. Place the granulated sugar in a small bowl. Using a cookie scoop, roll the cookie dough into a ball. Roll the dough in the sugar until completely coated. Place on the baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
5. Bake 8-10 minutes and let cool on the pan 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
6. Let cookies cool completely and melt white chocolate or almond bark according to package directions.
7. Dip each cookie halfway into the white chocolate and use a spoon to help coat each side. Decorate with sprinkles and let chocolate set before serving.
