TWD: Yummy Molasses Spice Cookies

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.)

More sugar = more tastiness! Although I left out the pepper, I really liked these cookies.

I know, I know, I'm a little late with this, but sometimes life just gets like that for me and then I terrorize your inbox with like five comments in a row and you think, "What the heck...." LOL. These cookies look great and we loved, loved, loved them. The black pepper definitely is a nice little addition. I love how your tops look with the large crystals.
