Tuesdays with Dorie is a little all over the place for November. :) You see, for this month, due to the craziness of the holidays, our gracious blog event host is allowing us to pick from all four of this month’s picks and make them on any Tuesday of the month. Last week I made the amazing All In One Holiday Bundt which I will definitely be making again for Thanksgiving. :)
This week I made the Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies which was chosen by Pamela of Cookies with Boys. You can find the recipe on her blog or on pages 76 and 77 of Dorie Greenspan’s Baking From My Home to Yours.
I had been meaning to make these for several days. It’s been a bit crazy here this past week. My 10 year old son had the flu, though thankfully that is over with. Our 12 year old son was in the playoffs for football, and my ten year old had his end of season football party, so I was busy making football jersey cookies (posting this week!), and we went to 12 yo’s football game which they won and are now the division champs! Woohoo! He goes to the “Super Bowl” next weekend. Phew! Then today it was shampoo the carpet day, so luckily this was a REALLY easy recipe to put together and I was able to sneak them out without any issues.
I did what the book said, which was to bake 12 cookies on a baking sheet, however I used a standard baking sheet and these cookies really spread. Therefore, my first batch ended up square because they had nowhere else to go but into each other. :-/ The flavor however, made me forget all about that, man these are good!
So I pulled out the big flat baking sheets and just to be safe, I only baked 6 at a time…
and the results were perfectly round, crack topped beauties! I did have a couple of them stick to the spatula as I was removing them, so if you make these make sure you clean off your spatula between batches.
Big hit. Very big hit. Wowsers!
These are super good, and they are awesome when still warm. My youngest son can be seen here enjoying one after school. Mmmmm. :)
These are a wonderful cookie for the holidays, do not hesitate to try them!!
