PB Oatmeal Cookies :)

 Monsters love cookies, but really....who doesn't? The milk dunking size ones are best. You may have seen that we have conquered Chocolate Chip Cookies, now we are trying to perfect these ones :)
 Le Ingredients are :
- 1 Cup Margarine, melted for 30 seconds in the microwave
- 2 Cups of Brown Sugar
Cream that together, until light and fluffy
Then Add :
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 Cup Peanut Butter
 To the wet ingredients, add :
- 4 Cups Rolled Oats
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Baking Soda.

Gradually add 1 cup of flour to this mixture, depending on the dough, you may or may not need the whole cup. I like to start out with less (1/2 cup), and add more after my first tray, if needed.
Drop by greased table spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, turn pan, and bake another 2. Approximately

We like to take ours out a little soft. Makes them a little less crunchy. 
Sherman appreciates it, since he doesn't have alot of teeth :)
Enjoy :)

Happy August

 Hello! Happy August! Trying to keep more current with my blog, thought I would share a few photo's of some recent monsters :) I have been sewing like crazy, without procrastination this time, and lots of newbies are taking shape :) The downside... socks and stuffing are depleting. I had no luck shopping for either last weekend, but this weekend will try again!

 Some new faces that were recently shipped off to Whistler :)
I am loving the little cyclops red head, he looks rather mischevious!

  Batch #2 has been shipped to Summit Lodge, and number 3 is in progress :) I am also adding to the pile, to get my etsy shop plumped up a bit, as well as 1 Christmas Craft Sale I've decided to attend on November 30th, in Lacombe. I will post more on that as I get details.

 I hope everyone is having an awesome summer vacation! And I know, if you are like me, back to school is nearly as exciting :) I love the break, but I love routine too. 

In my never ending journey, trying to make some of these guys a bit
"different", I am liking this new look :)

See ya soon! xo
