I

love

cookies.

At sleepovers, I usually eat 99% of the cookies. Sweets at night time are my weakness. I just can’t do savory or salty. Sweet all the wayyyyyy.

These cookies are the perfect bring-to-sleepover kinda cookie.

Or the eat all by yourself kinda cookie.

The original recipe calls for white chocolate chips, which makes them taste like white macadamia nut cookies. And that makes me happy because have you seen how expensive macadamia nuts are?! No thank you.

So definitely try this recipe with white chocolate chips. I decided to change things up this time and use chocolate chips. (Ok maybe it was because Dollar General didn’t have white chocolate….)
