This recipe for Gingerbread Sprinkle Cookies is sponsored in conjunction with ChristmasSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the ChristmasSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

This beautifully dark, molasses, ginger-and-spice flavored cookie is the perfect holiday cookie. Gingerbread Sprinkle Cookies are chewy, with a slight crunch from the sprinkles. A fave at our house!

It’s day 2 of Christmas Sweets Week! 

So many fantastic recipes shared yesterday and today, with dozens more on their way throughout the rest of the week.

Today I brought these Gingerbread Sprinkle Cookies. We love how soft and chewy they are and they are so incredibly festive with holiday sprinkles.

We specifically chose these Sweets & Treats Sweet Sprinkles Mix: Sock Monkey  Sweets & Treats is one of the sponsors this week and they have the CUTEST sprinkles mixes. We loved these for gingerbread!

We love how festive these Gingerbread Sprinkle Cookies are. They are perfect on any holiday cookie platter.

The cookies themselves are deliciously spiced, soft and chewy and just the slightest bit of crunch from those sprinkles.

After trying a lot of things to keep these as long as I could, we discovered that a great way to get these to last a little longer is to place a piece of bread at the bottom of an air-tight container, and layer the cookies on parchment paper on top.

Gingerbread Sprinkle Cookies make a wonderful gift for friends and neighbors. 

I purchase these cookie gift boxes, nestle the cookies in red tissue paper and then tie beautiful ribbon around the box, attach a gift tag and it’s instantly a deliciously sweet gift.

I love giving homemade treats to friends, family and neighbors and these Gingerbread Sprinkle Cookies are perfect.

This beautifully dark, molasses, ginger-and-spice flavored cookie is the perfect holiday cookie. Gingerbread Sprinkle Cookies are chewy, with a slight crunch from the sprinkles. A fave at our house!



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare two cookie sheets with parchment paper or cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger and the salt together.
  3. In another bowl, beat the brown sugar with the oil and molasses for about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the egg and continue beating about 1 minute, scraping sides several times to make sure everything is well blended.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing on a medium speed for about 2 minutes, a little at a time.
  6. Place dough in the fridge to chill for about a half hour or so to make it easier to work with.
  7. Roll dough into balls. Roll each ball through sprinkles and place about an inch and a half apart on your cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes. They should still be very soft. Allow to rest on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes or so. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  9. Store in airtight container with a piece of bread on the bottom for about 5 days. *they don't usually last even 1 or 2, everyone loves them.
