TWD: SUGAR-TOPPED MOLASSES SPICE COOKIES

The month of November was a great time for me to rejoin my beloved Tuesdays With Dorie baking group; and because November is such a crazy time with the holidays, the members can bake any of the 4 recipes selected for November and post on whichever Tuesday they please. With that in mind, I decided to start off with these cookies. I've been inundated with cakes, cupcakes, and pies the last month or so that I really missed the operation that is cookie baking!
Pamela of Cookies with Boys chose these cookies for November 17th, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the recipe that will be posted on her blog. These cookies were tremendous and by tremendous I mean tremendously delectable. They had a sugary crunchy top with a semi-soft center and a spiced molasses flavor that was to die for! All the cookies baked perfectly uniform and were super easy to make. I doled out half of the batch for noshing and the other half to be ground up as a crust for my pumpkin cheesecake that I will be making later this week. Thanks for a great selection, Pamela!

I've been following your insane schedule over the past few months - and I'm glad to see you back! These cookies were just great and a wonderful change.

We loved these cookies. They disappeared so fast I didn't have time to think of a pie crust. They would be so good with pumpkin pie.

Your cookies are gorgeous - and weren't they delicious? That's an excellent idea to use them in a pie crust. I might have to steal that one. :)
