Chocolate Chips, Cranberries and Pecans, O MY

Hello, girls... I tell ya....I just LOVE this time of year.
Mr. Sweet says he is pretty sure that it's not the COOKING and BAKING that I enjoy so much as the PICTURE TAKING.
I don't mind saying I DO love taking FOOD PHOTOS.
I should have gone to work for a food magazine....they could have taught me to do it all RIGHT and I would have loved every minute of it. (they might have even let me use a REAL CAMERA instead of this little RED point and shoot....:)

TODAY....
I made 
CHOCOLATE CHIP, CRANBERRY, PECAN
SUGAR COOKIES

Aren't they beautiful ?....all that RED is giving me HEART PALPITATIONS.



...JUST use your favorite
SUGAR COOKIE recipe, or...
get a SUGAR COOKIE MIX
at the grocery store...

add all your favorites...

I used a HANDFUL of pecans...

a HANDFUL of cranberries...

and a HANDFUL of
chocolate chips.
 ...then I gathered up all the CHRISTMAS RED and made the cutest photos...
 I just put a big pot of coffee on...DUNKIN DONUTS, of course...
and I'm about to have a CUP and a COOKIE.
Wish you were here to have one with me.
XOXOXO

Hi BJ, Your cookies look so yummy and sound really easy to make. I know I would enjoy one or two with a hot cup of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate it depends on the mood I am in at the time. I love the Christmas decorations you used. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Those cookies sure look good and sound so easy. You must have a cookie monster at your house for all the cookies you have been baking. Great photos too.

You could take food pics for a magazine! And home lay out pics too!

And they'd not be any nicer than the ones you take, with your little point and shoot. "Auntie" sezzzzzz...!
