Chocolate Gingersnap Christmas Stars

November 27, 2009

This recipe comes from my sister who made them and raved about them and didn’t save me one!  I had a bit of trouble getting the dough to come together and while it was mixing I added in 2-3 tbsp of milk.  The dough was still difficult to roll after it had been chilled and I’m thinking next time I may roll and cut the cookies without chilling the dough and then pop the pan in the freezer for a few minutes before baking.

Chocolate Gingersnap Christmas Stars

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3 oz milk chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  •  1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 tbsp of milk (use as needed)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Sift the dry ingredients (excluding sugar)  together in a bowl and set aside.

Cream butter and sugar together, add molasses and chocolate and vanilla.

Mix in the dry ingredients and milk (if needed) until dough comes together.

Pat into two discs and wrap in plastic wrap.  Let chill for 30 minutes

Roll out to 1/8″ thick and cut with cookie cutters.

Sprinkle with sugar if desired.

Bake 7 minutes
