Winner of the Giveaway! and A Recipe for Molasses Spice Cookie

So first on the agenda is the winner of the giveaway. Did you know there aren't number on the sides of the comments? Well I didn't realize that, so good thing I didn't have to count very many because the lucky winner is... (picked using randomgenerator) ......drum roll please...:



Comment #7....Terri!

Congratulations Terri! I will be contacting you shortly so watch out for my email!! Thank you to everyone who participated! And I hope you all enjoy your holiday, and favorite dish of the season :)
Now, moving on to other important cookie matters. Look at these babies. They are packed with a delicious blend of spices to create a soft and chewy cookie perfect for giving away or eating all by yourself! As you can see they aren't covered in sugar...well oops. That's my bad, I meant to roll them in sugar. I even had the bowl full of sugar and everything. But uh, well I don't know I guess I had a brain fart or something. On a side note about my forgetfulness. Just yesterday I was making a batch of cookie, and I realized I forgot to put in 66% of the sugar! That's a not very sweet cookie! But anyways, these molasses spice cookies are delicious, and you should try them. But don't feel like I'm forcing you, cause I'm not. But really, they're really really good! :)

Don't they look mouthwatering? Maybe my photography isn't the best, but they do make your house smell amazing. It's like having a spice infused candle radiate from your oven!
