Last night's stamp camp was so much fun. The ladies had a good time making the projects though I think they're ready to go back to cards next time. I think I'll try to include a 3-D type project in each of the upcoming camps -- it was fun to be a little different.
I couldn't decide what to make yesterday so I started with these cookies. The baking pieces look like little miniature Reese's peanut butter cups but because it's so hot here they melted completely in the oven. I think if I had thought it through I would have froze them before adding them to the batter and they would have retained more of their shape.
They were extremely flat so I expected them to be brittle. Luckily they was enough chewiness to them that they didn't feel like you were eating a chip. I do like my cookies slightly more dense, but these were good.
