twd: Sugar-Topped Spice Molasses Cookies

Sugar-Topped Spice Molasses Cookies taste just how they sound, but with a little surprise pinch of black pepper. It's not a taste I can pick out though. This TWD pick was made by Pamela of Cookies with Boys, who will have the recipe up sometime this month.

I halved the recipe (which made 24) and still got 2 dozen! These were rustic, set cookies on the outside, chewy and soft on the inside. Not being a big spiced cookie or molasses fan, I liked these much better than I thought I would. I love the texture - perfect for the cookie jar!

And for taking on a road trip. I packaged up some freshly baked cookies and pumpkin bread as a hostess gift for my sweet friend who is letting me stay with her a night while job interviewing and apartment hunting. Hopefully these will bring me some good luck.
