Sweet Tooth

I just finished reading the January issue of Eating Well.  And when I finished the issue I was hungry for something sweet.  Instead of making the healthier cookie featured in the magazine, I chose to make one that is not so healthy. You see, I have a sweet tooth.  I love cookies, cakes, desserts, and pies, and sometimes the healthy ones just don't satisfy my sweet tooth.  So I though I'd share the recipe of the cookies I made. They're so yummy and easy to make with just a few ingredients.

Pistachio Cookies

1-3 or 4 oz pistachio instant pudding mix
1-15 or 18 oz white cake mix
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
sugar for dusting

Combine the first four ingredients and drop by teaspoonful on to cookie sheet. Lightly sprinkle with sugar.  Bake at 350 degrees for 7 to 10 minutes.
The edges should be a very light golden brown.

Optional additions: 1/2 cup coconut, or 1/2 cup nuts.

My husband bought a new camera lens for me. It's a wider aperture than my current one and lets me take photos on cloudy days like today.  I'm anxious to see how it works on my jewelry.

Thanks to all my faithful readers.  I'm looking forward to sharing my goals for 2013, and hearing about yours as well.

I hope you have a Happy New Year!!
