One of the downsides of food blogging is having lots of sweets left over with nowhere to go. Even those with the sweetest of teeth have their limits. If there's ever a lull of baking posts, it's usually because I simply have no where left to take these desserts. Coincidentally, fellow food blogger Chelsea of Chelsea Bakes recently wrote about the same problem. I asked her if she'd like to do a trade and last week received a heaping box of the most delicious pearl sugar molasses cookies. Before even getting to my camera I managed to eat almost half of them, whoops! These cookies had such a great chewy texture and deep molasses flavor without being too sweet, even after being covered in pearl sugar. You can find the recipe on her blog here.
If you live in the Milwaukee area, Chelsea holds a monthly event called Tasting Tuesdays at Anthropologie where you can try her baked goods first hand. And make sure you check out the rest of her blog, it's a treasure trove of all sorts of sweets. Thank you so much for the cookies, Chelsea!
