I bet you thought I’d abandoned my blog, huh? No way, not even an option. I have, however, been waging war against my laptop which has suddenly gone rogue. At any rate, here is a two-for-one Tuesdays With Dorie post…on a Saturday night.

Sugar-Topped Molasses Cookies

Laurie, our fearless leader at Tuesdays With Dorie, has given us a wonderful gift this month…the gift of flexibility! Laurie posted all of the November recipe selections in advance and gave us the go ‘head to post them in any order we’d like [the crowd erupts in wild applause!].

I chose to start November off with the Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies Pamela of Cookies with Boys selected. These cookies are warm, homey, and reminiscent of gingerbread (but with a kick!)- perfect for this time of year. Want the recipe? Come on, we all know you do…so here it is.

Cran-Apple Crisp

Em of The Repressed Pastry Chef chose Dorie’s Cran-Apple Crisp. This is a delightfully simple, comforting dessert. I used fresh cranberries – their tartness is irresistable – and golden raisins. Gorgeous!

You should must add this to your autumn recipe collection, so head over to Em’s place for the recipe. While you’re at it, be sure to check out the Tuesdays With Dorie blogroll to see what my fellow bakers are cooking up. The rest of the month’s going to be just as sweet, so come back…if you can handle it. 😉
