Molasses Spice Cookies

So I kind of cheated, in that I made these as drop cookies and just chilled them on the sheets in the fridge for 15 min or so. But they turned out great! Nice and soft and great flavor! Thanks to Pamela of Cookies with Boys who selected this week's recipe!

Things have been a little busy here. We've a friend who's staying with us for a while, and we're probably moving mid-December, only a few blocks away, but a different town and (obviously) house. And then all the regular life stuff :) I'm hoping to still keep up with at least two of the Dec recipes - Dec looks to be a fantastic month!

Cran-Apple Crisp

A few years ago, I first tried a cran-apple pie and really, really liked it, so I was looking forward to this week's pick! I made just one big crisp, which didn't even need more baking time. This was a great, homey dessert. I liked the combination fresh and dried cranberries. I'd like to try this combo for a pie filling - maybe for Thanksgiving!

Thanks to Em of The Repressed Pastry Chef for selecting this week's recipe!
