Muscovado Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love October, and I love fall. There’s just something special about the crisp air, sweaters, golden colors and candle lights. And it’s my favorite season to eat cookies
Even though it was my day off (because I worked the weekend shift), I had to go to work to attend a meeting with my boss and a few of my coworkers. Our Facebook page recently reached a milestone, and to celebrate, I made these muscovado sugar cookies.
Muscovado is a type of unrefined brown sugar with a strong molasses flavor. It is also known as “Barbados sugar”, “molasses sugar” or “moist sugar”, and it is very dark brown and slightly coarser and stickier than most brown sugars. Yum! Muscovado takes its flavor and color from its source, sugarcane juice. And it’s delicious in cookies!
The cookie batter tasted sooooo good, and I ate way too much (Ooops… well, not really ) so when the cookies were done, I could only eat one. They had the perfect combination of softness and crunch. I highly reccommend them
Nomnomnom… Melted chocolate! How good do these bad boys look?
