Chocolate Holiday Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Ginger Cookies


I’ve loved Jamie and her cookies at Platine for nearly a decade now. She makes small versions of classic favorites but hands-down our favorite is her chocolate ginger cookie. We’ve modified our chewy ginger to give us a taste of what she whips up. Use freshly grated ginger if you can and throw in as much finely chopped chocolate as you can fit in these.



Chewy Chocolate Ginger Cookies

  • 2 sticks (8 ounces) Butter
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 tsps Freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup Molasses
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tsps Vegetable oil
  • 22/3 cup Flour
  • 2 Tbsps Cocoa powder
  • 2 tsps Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3 Tbsps Coarse sugar, such as organic granulated or Turbinado


Chewy Chocolate Ginger Cookies

  1. Cream the butter, sugar and molasses in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or in the bowl of a hand-held mixer until light and creamy. Add the eggs and oil and cream until smooth.
  2. Add the flour, baking soda, ginger, cocoa powder and salt and mix until just combined.
  3. Scoop balls of dough into the coarse sugar and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350F until just barely setting up on the edges (about 5-6 minutes). Cool on the cookie sheets and lift off once cooled.
