Tuesdays with Dorie: Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice CookiesNovember 3, 2009 at 1:37 am | Posted in cookies & bars, groups, sweet things, tuesdays with dorie | 41 Comments
You may notice that the TWDers are not all posting the same recipe this week. We’re able to tackle the month’s chosen recipes in any order we like, and I’ve decided to start off with Dorie’s Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies, picked by Pamela of Cookies with Boys. I think I’m easing into November…it’s probably the least complicated of the month’s four recipes to make. But don’t think it’s simple in flavor…molasses adds a complexity you don’t get with white sugar, and the spices here really shine through. It’s a perfect cookie for this time of year. (I am having wicked thoughts of stirring some bittersweet chocolate chips into the dough the next time I make them, though.)
Dorie intends these to be crisp cookies, but mine were soft and chewy. What can I say…I forgot to flatten my balls of dough before putting them in the oven. As a result, they also didn’t spread quite as much. No matter though…crispy or chewy, I like them equally, so I am pretending that they were meant to be that way.
