Guest blogger : Quilted Euphoria

Hello all you Le Chateau Des Fleurs readers! My name is Amber and I am so beyond thrilled to be hijacking Frenchy's blog for the day. She's posting over at my place today so come check it out!
I'm the evil genius behind the Quilted Euphoria blog. Don't let the name fool ya, I've got much more on my blog than just quilts! I like to confuse my readers with a touch of everything. Quilting, crafts, recipes, random thoughts, pictures, funnies...just about everything.
Today I decided to cannibalize a tutorial that I wrote last fall season and share it with you guys today. It's a really tasty recipe for some fall themed cookies that I know you're going to love.
Carmel Apple Oatmeal Cookies
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla (trust me!)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 cup Kraft Carmel baking bits
  • 1 1/2 cups apple (chopped, grated, etc)
The Process...
Chop, grate, etc your apples to be ready to add to the dough later. Set aside.

Combine butter, sugars, egg in bowl and mix until light and fluffy.
Add in vanilla, baking powder, soda, salt and combine.
Add in the apples, oats, and caramel pieces and mix completely.
Add flour, combine.
Put in fridge for 30 minutes to firm up the dough.

Preheat oven to 350.
Scoop out dough by spoonfuls and drop onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake 12-15 minutes until done.
See then I made some caramel drizzle to go over the tops. I just melted the rest of my caramels in the microwave and spooned it out and viola! Chewy, declicious carmel cookies! I may or may not have eaten a few of them for dinner...and there may or may not be any left for hubby...although I did freeze about half as this makes about four dozen cookies. These freeze beautifully as well, so if you can't eat them all, freeze some for later.
Thanks so much Frenchy for swapping with me today! I hope you guys come say hello, because I love making new blogging friends! :-)

Looks very yummy. I think these would be great for tailgate parties. Great idea to melt the chunks to drizzle. - Tonya
