White Chip Chocolate Cookies



I think my recent interest in baking is from becoming a mom. Seeing my little girl's excitement when I ask her to help me do something in the kitchen makes me so happy. She runs over to a chair, pushes it up to the counter, and then climbs on up and jumps right in. And when you are two-and-a-half, what's more fun to make than cookies? She especially loves sneaking some of the ingredients while looking at me out of the corner of her eye!


We made these cookies together, and I picked the recipe because I had leftover white chocolate chips from making chocolate covered pretzels.

These cookies were richer than regular chocolate chip cookies, and not as sugary sweet - I like that and so did everyone who tried them. I'll definitely be putting these on my list for the holidays next year.
