TWD: Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies

November is great. Its really one of my favorite months. Its not hot, not too cold (here anyway), and it has THANKSGIVING!!! WOOHOOO!!! I mean, whats better, a day where you do nothing but eat. It was made for me I think.

Anyway, enough about that. This month we're allowed to bake the TWD picks out of order. This week I chose to make the Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies chosen by Pamela from Cookies with Boys.

These cookies first proved to be a big pain in the butt over a week ago when I went out in search of Molasses. Apparently the only store in my town that carried it is the one I didn't go to, so I ended up searching in the small town I work in that had it. Oh well. I'm also sad to say that I really didn't like these cookies. Something about the odd flavor of it. But I think I'm the only person in the TWD group that didn't like them, so its obviously just me. Make them anyway :) I can say that they were better after they had fully cooled, but I have very little control over waiting until things are fully cooled.

Also, if you do make them, the dough is really weird. Just to warn you. And, I found it difficult to smash them out, I'd suggest spraying something with a ton of Pam and trying it.

Pamela will probably post the recipe next week, since that's when her pick was due to be posted, but check out her blog. Its neato. And if you want the recipe before then, or just want to be the owner of the best baking book ever, buy it here.


  1. Sorry you didn't like them, but I do appreciate you baking along with me!

  2. I think that November is a great month in the southern states. The weather is perfect, and there's a lot to look forward to.
    I'm sorry that these were a sticky pain for you -- it's never fun when you have to work just to find the ingredients.

  3. Yep, November is one of the few month's its great to live in the south during. These weren't a total bust, my Grandpa thought they were awesome, so I suppose thats all that matters :)

  4. Sorry you didn't end up liking these cookies - your cookie looks perfectly round! That's what bothers me the most, that I'll be the only one with non-round cookies! =)
