Yummy cookies....

Well the weather has been pretty terrible here in the Edmonton area. For the last few days the wind has gotten up to over 90 kms per hour - ridiculous!!! We lost a few lids for the garbage cans and some of the older trees in our yard have blown down...great way to get firewood for the summer I guess!!

Since we haven't been brave enough to face the crazy wind, we decided to stay inside the last few days. With that comes a bit of baking, cleaning and of course, scrapping! I just finished making these great cookies which I call homemade oreo cookies...they are soooooo chewy and yummy it is very hard to only have just one...or two...or three!!! While sandwiching them together, I came across one, burried in the pile, that looked like this:

Somehow, a mysterious chunk, similar to what would look like a "bite mark" was missing from one of the cookies - little did my husband know that there were still crumbs on his face!!! Here is the delicious recipie for you to try:

2 pkgs of Devil's food cake mix
1 cup of vegetable oil
4 eggs
Mix all of this together; roll into small balls of equal sizes and place on a cookie sheet; bake for 10 -12 minutes at 350 degrees.


1/2 cup margarine or butter
1 pkg of cream cheese (8 0z)
2 tsp. vanilla
3-4 cups of icing sugar

Mix together; when cookies are cool, place a dollop in the middle of two cookies and make a sandwich....there you go! Homemade yummy oreo cookies! Enjoy!

As for scrapping...I am still working on that! Did you get a chance to take a look at Tim Holtz' blog??? It is amazing! He has put up some tutorials/videos about his new diecuts and embossing folders! Everything looks so amazing - I can't wait to use the embossing folders! And everything can be used with your Cuttlebug! Urban Scrapbook already has in the diecuts but they are moving fast so if you want some of your own, hurry in! Check out Tim's blog here - you will surely be impressed!

Hope you are all having a great weekend!
