More Cards from S. Elle Designs

So I am at that stage in my life where seemingly every one I know is either having weddings or babies.  So you may start to see a very common theme in the things that I create.  I usually find most of my inspiration from the happenings around me.  Since I (unfortunately) have to work full time until I can make this crafting shindig a legit money-making business, I usually only have time to make the cards and crafts that I need at that moment.

Maybe one day... I'll have enough time to create and bring you all the ideas in my head... but until then, some of my little crafties to hold you (and me) over.

Treat bags (to match baby shower invites seen in previous card post)

Butterscotch Chocolate Oaties

I know it has been forever since I originally talked about it, but finally, I bring you, Butterscotch Chocolate Oaties!!

1 1/4 all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup softened butter
3/4 graulated sugar
3/4 cups brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups chopped old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. 
Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl.
Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Chop oats in food processor until most oats are chopped.  It's okay to have different size oats.  By processing the oats, it'll give the cookies a different texture.  Add processed oats, chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips to mixture. 
Drop rounded tablespoons on an ungreased baking sheet and bake about 7-8 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer to a cooling rack. 

Everyone loved these!  Even after all the gifts, I still had a whole bunch of cookies left, so my husband took them his office and he said they didn't even last 5 minutes before they were all gone.  Hope you enjoy them too!!
