If you only make two kinds of cookies this holiday season; one should be the Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies and the other, these Sablés. Both will guarantee rave reviews. Thanks to Barbara of BungalowBarbara for her choice for this edition of TWD. You can find the recipe on Barbara’s blog.Frustrated that I couldn’t find the sparkling decorators sugar in several grocery stores, I used Turbinado sugar to grace the chilled roll of cookie dough before slicing it into rounds to bake. When I bake these again for the grandchildren at Christmas, I will use the colorful sprinkles that flood the decorating section of the grocery store. But for this baking session, I wanted the cookies to look as elegant as its name.Until next time–

    I agree with you about these cookies and the Molasses ones that were also scrumptious.

    You know, maybe you're right about the cookies. I usually go Cah-RAZY with cookies during the holidays. Maybe it would be better just to keep it simple. Nice idea, and beautiful cookies.
