I'm a big believer in traditions - whether that means apple picking at the onset of fall, organizing in the spring, or taking advantage of those little daily moments - like enjoying a leisurely cup of tea with cookies in the afternoon. It's not often that I'm inspired to bake something based on a specific kitchen tool, but when I came across heart-shaped cookie cutters (from Cost Plus) that had little cut-outs to rest on a cup? Sold. I decided to make these molasses spice cookies and simply rolled them out instead of following the directions so I could make them into shapes. They came out exactly as I'd hoped - slightly crisp with a smoky taste and made my entire place smell like the holidays. I'm a sucker for a cute concept and it felt like I was living inside of Pinterest as soon as I rested my cookie on the lip of my cup of tea.
