Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies

I’m in a rush because in a little while, the Beau is coming home and taking me to the Happiest Place on Earth! I landed a job peeps! Part of the celebration and of making the most of my last free days left before I start work on Nov 30! YAY! (Actually I wanted to take the rest of the year off, but this opportunity came up and I had to take it!) So no intro shot or setup shot of these super aromatic spice cookies unfortunately. But I do have a pretty picture of the bird we ate last night:

This one looks better than the last one!


Pam of Cookies with Boys selected this week’s TWD treat, Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies. Take a moment to visit her blog and see how perfectly round and scrumptious her cookies turned out! And lucky for you, you can also get the recipe there too! I like to visit Pam’s blog because she always has something yummy to look at,
These were difficult for me to form into balls. Actually that part wasn’t difficult, it was the smashing down with a glass cup part that was. I’d smash it down and the cookie dough would stick to the glass cup. I don’t know how the TWD Bakers did this, but mine ended up looking a bit deformed prior to baking:

Kinda deformed, but do you see the smiley face one? =)


I’m only baking one batch, the rest will have to wait until later. Here they are sunning in the backyard:

Nothing like a little brown on brown on green action!

Last Week: Cran-Apple Crisps
Next Week: Chocolate Caramel Chestnut Cake (maybe, if I can find any chestnuts and spread!)

  10. Woohoo! Congrats on the new job, that’s super-awesome in this tough economy. I didn’t really have a problem with the dough sticking, but I absolutely smothered mine in coarse sugar. They still look yummy!
