Sugar and Spice Christmas

I know YOU'VE noticed all the great CHRISTMAS parties going on....and I'm trying my best to
attend as many as I possibly can.
I LOVE CHRISTMAS PARTIES.

SUGAR AND SPICE CHRISTMAS PARTY.


I found ROSIE, the PEPPERMINT ANGEL, at a thrift store several years ago and I just love her to pieces.

She has that adorable smile on her face....


that cute little hat...

that to-die-for candy stripe dress...


holding a
PEPPERMINT BANNER...

and.....



she really knows how to pick out delicious SHOES....:)

 SO, she and I got down to the business of COOKIE MAKIN'.

First off....Chocolate Chip....

 Chocolate Chip Cranberry Pecan....

O HONEY


Cookies look adorable served in pretty CUP CAKE LINERS
 Dark and White Chocolate Chip  ones are delicious.







My dear friend, AUDREY of
TIMELESS TREASURES
sent these Vintage Fire King  coffee mugs to me.....

I was so thrilled to get them and I've used them many times....

and, of course, when I do, I think of my sweet Audrey and am so thankful for our online friendship.


I just use a Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe (or a delicious mix that you can buy at the store),
add a handful of pecans...
a handful of CRANBERRIES
and, as always,
an extra capful of Vanilla.







They are delicious and wonderful to serve at CHRISTMAS TIME....

Thanks so much for coming by to see my
SUGAR AND SPICE post.

CHRISTMAS LOVE TO ALL...

  6. Good morning my sweet friend, I have been sooooo busy but finally things have slowed down a bit. I am scrolling down to see what I have missed.

    Your peppermint girl is so cute. I could use a hand in cookie baking next Weds. because that is the sister's cookie day this year. Late I know but everyone is so darn busy. "Tis the season' Smile!

    Your Fire King mugs are a treasure. I love them too. Some hot mulled cider sounds so good to fill those sweet mugs.

    Come see the gingerbread house I posted if have a minute. It is awesome.

    Love you much and I have missed visiting your always awesome blog.

  12. Another wonderful post. I hope the cookies were made with splenda instead of regular sugar that way I could have one. Love your peppermint girl she is adorable. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  16. hi bj ... love your sweet little Rosie. Nice to have her around for company while you bake those delicious cookies. Need to try that as I have fresh cranberries left over from Thanksgiving. Thanks for the tip on using a box mix. Will be a good time-saver for me. So happy that you are still enjoying the Fire King mugs. They look really pretty in your pictures. Thanks for the link.
