Reviewed Molasses Cookie Sandwiches

Oct 6, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm hesitant to rate this as my one attempt thus far was a HUGE waste. I'll say, too, my only goal was for the cookie recipe itself. I wish I had watched the episode more closely thinking maybe the ingredients listed here are wrong. However, after doing some online research, I'm convinced I got incorrectly labeled flour(s).

Glad I found this recipe, much simpler than the one I was actually searching for. I used this for the crispy goat cheese technique. I'm still acquiring a taste for rosemary but liked the idea of the flavored oil. I infused my own olive oil so the rosemary taste was likely a lot lighter than I'd get out of a bottle. I topped greens with the del"
