I'm participating in a Blogger Baked Goods exchange and since my goodies have to make it all the way from California to New York, I needed a cookie that would keep well. I've been thinking of what to bake for days and time is running out, the package needs to be in the mail tomorrow. Tonight, I pulled out an old copy of Cook's Illustrated and made Soft, Chewy Molasses Spice Cookies. These are delicious, festive and will travel well. I really hope she likes them. I'll reveal the blogger I exchanged with next week. Happy Baking!
