We should have a ......


It's always a good time to get together and fellowship. So why not do it by having a 

Pinterest Party!

Before Christmas, my now Cousin-in-Law Christine, wanted to have a Christmas Pinterest Party but our crazy schedules didn't allow us to. 

Well, last night we were all able to get together as a family and craft!

We each were to pick a craft that could be worked on for a couple of hours and a recipe for a snack.

For my project, I chose to make my own coasters!


Are these not adorable or what?

You will need:



4 square tiles from your local hardware store (4.25″ x 4.25″)

(I got mine at Home Depot for 16c each)
4 pieces of scrapbook paper (4″ x 4″)
Mod Podge
Sponge Brush

Clear acrylic sealer

I cut out 4x4 squares of construction paper
(they were actually a tad smaller because I wanted the white from the tile to be a 'border')


I then took the Mod Podge and applied it to the tile with a sponge brush...


Then squeegeed out all the air bubbles...

I let it dry and then applied a thin coat of MP Sealer on the top. Those dried for about 15-20 minutes before I applied another thin layer... 


Then just add felt pads to the corners...



and you've got your coasters!


It was SUPER easy and a lot of fun!


For my recipe, I chose to do..

drum roll please...

CUPCAKES!

But these weren't just ANY kind of cupcake.. these were 

 OREOS IN COOKIES AND CREAM CHEESECAKE CUPCAKES


oh. my. goodness.


Ingredients:

32 Oreos- 20 left whole, and 12 coarsely chopped
2 pounds cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup sour cream
Pinch of salt


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Place 1 whole cookie in the bottom of each lined cup.



2. With an electric mixer on medium high speed, beat cream cheese until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Gradually add sugar, and beat until combined. Beat in vanilla.


3. Mix in eggs, one at a time, beating to combine and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in sour cream and salt. Stir in chopped cookies by hand.



4. Divide batter evenly among cookie-lined cups, filling each almost to the top. Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until filling is set, about 25 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (or up to overnight). Remove from cupcake papers just before serving.



Check out the rest of the night from all the pics below!
