TWD - Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies

Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies... How can someone say those words and not think that Christmas is just around the corner? How can someone smell the slightly spicy, molasses scented batter and not feel like taking the Christmas decorations out of storage right this minute? I tell ya, I almost did!

These cookies really do smell like Christmas and they are perfect in every way. Just the right amount of spices, just sweet enough and crunchy like a ginger snap. Per-fect. The only thing I did differently is make twice the cookies specified because I like the smaller, crunchier cookies.

Thank you Pamela of Cookies with Boys for choosing this as one of the November recipes for Tuesdays with Dorie. This will also be my last Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, for a while anyways. I have so many cookbooks and magazines I want to bake recipes from and with all the weekly recipes, it's just too many desserts. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, there is such a thing as too much dessert!!! It was so much fun being part of such a great group of baking enthusiasts, I most certainly will miss it. But I'll keep visiting the members' blogs and hope my Tuesdays with Dorie friends will keep visiting me too. I just need a little more time to be creative, and bake what I feel like, when I feel like it. The Holidays are just around the corner, I'll be baking up a storm pretty soon, so stay tuned!
Pin It!

Those square cookies look familiar. Made those a few times! November is beginning to feel like a practice session for Christmas. Glad you enjoyed these cookies!

Beautiful stack of cookies!

I totally relate to your reasons for leaving TWD. I love baking what I want, when I want. We're kindred rebels. :-)

These are beautiful, perfect cookies! I have your blog in my reader so I'll be back even without TWD! - mary

Those are gorgeous -- they look just like Spice Wafers. We'll miss you at TWD --I haven't been baking since the beginning of October, but I'm back now. I like your idea of cooking other parts of the meal, but I'm noticed that I never blog about what I cook unless there's a group deadline.
