Salted Caramel Mocha Cookies

Hello friends!

It’s the first week where I have yet to experience a day above 73 degrees, and man is it amazing or what?!

The sun is shining, but yours truly is not sweating. It’s a wonderful combination. Making cookies is a breeze when there’s an actual cool breeze coming through the window, and I’ve finally found the perfect North-facing window at which to take all my pictures.

I don’t often like to toot my own horn (okay just sometimes) but the cookie fest looks fabulous thanks to these new photos! It’s so much more fun when you can focus on composition instead of grumbling/cursing at inanimate objects and lighting fixtures because your shadows are harsh and horrible.
