Something about the holidays just makes it seem like making cookies are the right time to make them. And to be honest, I haven't made cookies in for what seems like forever! I usually only make cookies around this time, though, I should learn to make them more often since I love cookies! But I have the habit of buying my cookies and not making them myself.
Today, I had several cookie recipes I was looking at and there were so many I wanted to make, but was only to choose one. I didn't want to make regular old chocolate chip cookies, nor did I feel like having my favorite cookie, a snickerdoodle. I wanted to make something I hadn't had in some time, or don't normally have. In the end, I wanted to make a chewy chocolate cookies with my favorite chocolate inside; White chocolate chips!
These cookies baked wonderfully and turned out just right. They were so chewy, so chocolatey, and so delicious! I think everyones going to be having a hay day over these cookies. They're just so good.
