Rich Peanut Butter Cookies
This recipe is a hit. A handful of extra peanut butter chips were used. I made two plates and put them out for a group of teenagers. One plate had the cookies, topped with some Nutella spread. The other plate was the cookie, with no topping. Given the choice, they all picked the Nutella topped cookies and that plate was quickly emptied, leaving the plain cookies. I then topped the plain cookies and the same thing happened....the cookies disappeared in the blink of an eye!
The cookies are good as is but a HUGE HIT when topped with the Nutella.

Soft Molasses Cookies
A wonderful recipe! I made it exactly as the recipe said except I used my mixer both to mix the wet ingredients AND to blend the wet and dry ingredients together. The consistency was perfect this way. The cooking time was 15 minutes. Cooking time is key to getting a cookie that is chewy and not crispy all the way through.
I used a small ice cream scoop to form the dough ball, then dipped the ball in sugar as the recipe calls for and the cookies came out sparkly on top. Then I tried dipping them in Turbinado cane sugar instead of white sugar and it was a nice alternative, giving the cookie a sugary crunch when cool. Spaced a couple of inches apart on the cookie sheet, the cookies spread out beautifully to a perfect circle. This is an attractive and tasty cookie. It's a great afternoon cookie with tea!
