Chipster & Cranberries Cookies

Procastinator . Nah ! sheer laziness :P :D

Been meaning to bake these since Monday .

Blame it on the weather . I just love winter . At least I could cover up my jiggly stomach tsk !

Hey ! It's the season to be FAT and jolly anyway hahaha

And yet another Mrs Fields recipe , except for the cookie name and some added variations -her recipe has the same main ingredients in almost all of her cookie recipe ^o^". As long as you reduced the sugar , add more flour  , in my opinion , 'tis the best cookie recipe you'll bake again and again :D

You gotta check this out Mrs Fields Cookies

  4. When I was younger, I almost went to work for Mrs Fields! Since I did not I am always wondering what secrets I could have learned...
    Your cookies look so enticing-it is torture to scroll down through the pictures! I am leaving this post with a big craving for these cookies and it is not even 6 am yet! Have a great weekend.
