I have a new favorite cookie… Spiced Molasses Sandwich Cookies! Trust me… you will LOVE them!
The perfect blend
The cookie itself is quite sweet, especially with the course sugar, but the pumpkin-butter buttercream is the perfect balance. It is just a little sweet with a good bit of spice making each bite the perfect balance.
If you are planning on just eating the cookies and not making them into sandwich cookies you could leave off the sugar until right when you bring them out of the oven. That way the sugar is just on the top and not on all sides.
When I roll cookies in sugar I like to use course sugar. I love the extra sparkle it adds to the cookies and I also love the crunch. If you do not have any no worries… you can use granulated sugar and it would work perfectly.
If you really wanted to jazz it up you could use gold or silver sprinkles. I always love a little extra sparkle and shine.
There perfect bite
The beauty of these cookies is that they are little, but loaded with tons of flavor. Each bite is loaded with a little sweet, a little spice and little creamy from the Pumpkin-Butter Buttercream. If you don’t love pumpkin (I am sorry if that is the case) you can use a caramel buttercream or vanilla buttercream…either would be delicious.
Also, like I mentioned above if you just want to enjoy the cookie, you can. They are AMAZING all on their own.
