Mmmm! I've been baking up a storm! Before we get to the cookies, I'd like to share my next card that I made for Card*a*licious! The challenge this week is to create a card with at least 3 circles. I busted out my new Cuttlebug machine and embossed a circle card with the Swiss Dots plate, added a tree sticker and rub on by Art Warehouse, pink button is Basic Grey Euphoria and star button is Making Memories. The little felt snowflakes were in a kit that I received before, so I'm not sure how they were made. But I wish I had more!
The next one is my first project for Dream Street! We were assigned to work with 3 lines for November: Cookies-n-Cream, Mod Posy and Mairzy Doats(on the card). I found this neat box at the craft store for $1 and altered it with the papers, baked some cookies to go inside and added the recipe on the Cookies-n-Cream recipe paper. It has a flip top lid that I thought was really neat.
I added a swirl rub on to the tag- cut from the paper, a rub on saying by Melissa Frances and some lace. The flower in the middle is a silk flower from the craft store.
These papers also have a treat bag template on them, all you do is fold it up and adhere! Super easy! I tucked in a little bag of these cookies...
Added a card to go with this set:

...a special treat for someone special at Thanksgiving. You can view all of the specific directions on how to make these 3 projects at the Dream Street Blog.

These cookies are *delicious* should try them! Here is the recipe, which is from Nestle's Best Loved Cookies:

Recipe for Oatmeal Scotchies

1 ¼ c flour
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp salt
3 c quick or old fashioned oats
1 c (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 c (12 oz. pkg) Nestle butterscotch flavored morsels
¾ c granulated sugar
¾ c packed brown sugar
½ tsp ground cinnamon

Combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in small bowl. Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla in large mixing bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and morsels. Drop by rounded teaspoonful onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake in preheated 375* oven for 7-8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9-10 minutes for crispy cookies. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

Thanks for visiting! =)
