TWD ~ Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies

This is just my forth time baking with the Dorie bakers and sadly, this time, I didn't achieve the results I was hoping for. Mine were missing the beautiful cracks and crevices that were present in the cookbook photo. They were tasty enough , slightly crisp outside, chewy inside, but were flatter than I would prefer. Dorie said the dough would be smooth and soft but I think my dough needed a bit more flour. I will give this recipe another try as I want them to come out just like the ones Dorie and other bakers made.

Remember the comparison posted about here? I suppose it has more to do with familiarity but my family still prefers our old recipe. Plus, they were easier to make.

Please visit the other Dorie bakers to see how splendid their cookies turned out. Our host for this recipe is Pamela of Cookies with Boys. Visit her for the recipe and to see how wonderful hers baked up!

Well they LOOK great! I noticed quite a few TWDers were missing the cracks. Not sure what the difference was. I loved these cookies. :) I made the cran apple crisp this week, so yummy!

Oh man those look really good though. Are they the old ones or the new ones? My family likes my old standbys best also.

Your extraordinary photography makes them look perfect to me. Hope you have a good day.

Oh well, as long as they taste good, right? I can never get a recipe to turn out like the pictures either! Good for you for trying!
