Spice Cookies and Clouds

Last night Zack exclaimed that these Fall Spice Cookies are the best I've ever made. I used a recipe posted by Alisa Burke. Easy to make and they turned out great.

My mom used to make really big and really moist molasses cookies when I was growing up. I always thought they were the best. Wonder if she still has that recipe?

More Fall-like weather has arrived to our corner of the world. Major fluctuations in temperatures. Cool, hot, muggy. Lots of clouds as there is a chance for rain.



Hope your week is off to a great start.

The weather is up and down here. It is NOT normal for it to be 81F on Nov. 14, that's for sure! I am ready to turn on the A/C and I imagine tonight we will need the heat back on!

Pretty sky pictures!

I have just been catching up on your blog, Tammy. I hope your ankle is a lot better and that it didn't spoil your holiday too much. What a beautiful place to spend a holiday too! I really enjoy seeing your world through blogland. Kathleen.

Mmmm..those look so good! I wish we had scent-screen-computers! Grrr..is there anything Alisa Burke isn't wonderful at?? Wow..love the clouds..our weather is changing and today was one magnificent fall day..hope you have an awe-inspiring week :-)

Your cookies looks delicious! As always. :)

Beautiful photos of the sky. I guess it doesn´t rain very often i Kuwait so I think you enjoy it very much when it happens...?

Something is really wrong with our weather here in Sweden. It´s warmer than it has ever been this time of year. No snow in sight. I start to worry to be honest because I prefer real winters instead of this "middle weather". And sometimes the heaven is almost cherryred in Stockholm and it doesn´t seem normal to me...

Hope you had a great start on your week!
Hugs!

Hey, Tammy! Those cookies looks fabulous... and sound like fall. We have been having wishy-washy, cool - hot weather, too. Hard to know what to wear when you are getting dressed in the mornings!

Does sunscreen help your allergy? That's a bummer. Hope both your skin and your ankle are feeling MUCH better soon! Meanwhile, do you have one of those cheese biscuits to have before the cookie? ;) c.o.m.f.o.r.t! blessings ~ tanna

Dearest Tammy,

Important that Zack is happy with them! Once in a while you hit bingo with some bake or a dish you cooked.
Have a great Tuesday and remainder of the week. Love to you,

Mariette

These look devine, and I know I would go crazy for them with a nice hot cup of coffee...or tea!

The cookies look good! Pretty pictures of the sky.

Big fluctuations in the weather here too - a few snowflakes last week that didn't amount to anything, followed by 75 degrees and a Tornado warning yesterday. That's pretty much weather here in Illinois. :)

Happy Tuesday,
Linda

I love those kind of big molasses cookies too! They smell wonderful baking and they speak of "home" to me. Pretty sky photos! blessings,Kathleen

Stella said...

Sound like a good fall cookie to have with apple cider. We are having a very warm Nov. I stained the deck in my t shirt today. But know it has to change soon. Have a good week.

Pam said...

The cookie photo has my mouth watering. I'm sure your family enjoyed them. We too are experiencing cooler weather. 70's yesterday. Flowers are looking great. Time for a cookout in the backyard I think. I've been quilting and will have some photos to share later this week.
