Nothing lifts a bad mood like coming home and making picture-perfect cookies. The flip side, I would imagine, is that coming home in a bad mood and accidentally producing ugly failure cookies would make the bad mood that much worse. But all’s well that ends well, and these molasses cookies taste as good as they look. Another ATK recipe for the win! The slightly offbeat choice came from the instructor for my safety class. The way I see it, if we have to go to a night class (mere weeks after I celebrated never having a class again!) there should be cookies involved.
