Pile It On Card Challenge/Hand Full Of Stamps #9

I created this card with "Pile It On Challenge" in mind. For that challenge I cut out the snowman head from chipboard. It also fit "If The Shoe Fits" with the snow. AND, it fit Crazy Crafter with the snow. This is a digital design that I colored from the wonderful "Simple Doodles" design site. It also has a red ribbon on it to fit the "Hand Full Of Stamps #9"....lol

Cookies sweet & salty

2nd day of the fabulous "Die Cut Divas" blog hop....so many wonderful recipes and sooo many calories...but, my butt is big enough......hehehe here is my recipe...oh so good!!!

Crispy Salted Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookies
Adapted from Cook’s Illustrated

The original recipe didn’t have white chocolate in it, but it really works wonderfully in here. Even if you’re a dark chocolate fan. Watch out, use the good stuff and this may even convert you.

1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon table salt
14 tablespoons (1 3/4 sticks) unsalted butter, slightly softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

6 ounces good-quality white chocolate bar, chopped (not “white chocolate” chips; they’re almost always artificial. I am adamant about this.)

1/2 teapoon flaky sea salt (like Maldon or fleur de sel) (for sprinkling on top)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and table salt in a medium bowl.

2. Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Scrape down bowl with rubber spatula, then add egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated. Scrape down bowl again. Add flour mixture gradually and mix until just incorporated and smooth. Gradually add oats and white chocolate and mix until well incorporated.

3. Divide dough into 24 equal portions, each about 2 tablespoons. Roll between palms into balls, then place on lined baking sheets about 2 1/2 inches apart. Using fingertips, gently press down each ball to about 3/4-inch thickness.

4. Sprinkle a flake or two of sea salt on each cookie

5. Bake until cookies are deep golden brown, about 13 to 16 minutes, rotating baking sheet halfway through. Transfer baking sheet to wire rack to cool.

Got really pretty white flowers and "Windsor Rose" Primas in the mail today!!The roses are really beautiful. I got all the white so I can "jazz" them up with alcohol inks and liquid embroidery. Think I am going to try some with some pearl powders too...we'll see.
