Indecision is a terrible thing.
For instance, in trying to decide which Dorie delight I would make this week, I waffled back and forth until Wednesday. On Wednesday, I decided to bake the molasses spice cookies, and I'm glad I did.
They are absolutely delicious. And that's according to everyone who had one.
I rolled the cookie-dough balls in my large crystallized sugar bits and sprinkled more on top just for kicks.
I only baked 6 cookies per sheet because I knew they would spread. I also let the baked cookies sit a few minutes on the baking sheet so they would be easier to remove to the cooling racks.
These cookies will definitely go on the bake-again list. Thanks to Pamela of Cookies with the Boys for a top-notch choice. Visit the TWD blog to learn more.
(Yes, I did include the black pepper. It adds a nice depth to the spicy flavor.)
