So I did it again this year!
I may have been a little mentally ill when I signed up though because:
There was a recent death in the family.
I was moving.
My oven stopped working.
Biting off more than I can chew.
Hyphenate that and it could be my new middle name.
Much like that ol' "Meta World Peace" what's-his-face...
So I (honestly) forgot about this year's cookie swap until like three days before.
Luckily I'd already decided I was going to try a recipe for a molasses spice cookie.
Yea, I thought the same thing.
That gooey, dark stuff that kinda looks like syrup but smells too funky for anyone to dare try it on a pancake.
I was surprised though.
Although my oven was still giving me fits, these cookies turned out pretty good.
I'm not sure molasses is my favorite flavor - just keepin' it real folks - but these were warm, spicy cookies made a really unique (but simple) holiday treat.
I realllly liked them dunked in a) milk or b) hot tea.
So onto the results::
