Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1/4 cup dark molasses
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

White Chocolate Filling

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips, melted
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Cookies

  • Place softened coconut oil and sugar in a stand mixer. Beat on medium speed about 2 minutes or until evenly creamed. Mix in molasses, egg, and vanilla until creamy.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, spices, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt. Add flour mixture to liquid, and beat on medium speed until a dough forms.
  • Scoop dough into 1-in balls and place 3 in apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake cookies at 350F 9-11 minutes or until edges just start to turn golden. (middles will still seem very soft) Cool cookies on baking pan 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

White Chocolate Filling

  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until completely smooth. Add melted white chocolate, powdered sugar, orange zest, and vanilla and beat on high speed until filling is smooth and thick.
  • Frost the bottoms of half of cooled cookies. Top with remaining cookies to form a sandwich. Store cookies in fridge until ready to serve. Enjoy!
