Cookies N Creme Chocolate Chip Cookies

I actually have two more cookies n creme recipes that I want to try making, but I am feeling a little burned out this week. I have two puking kiddos and no energy left to finish baking. Plus, the hubby is not one to chow on fattening foods all week which means we’ve been throwing baked goods at people just to get them out of our house. Sooooo, here is the last cookies n creme recipe, until maybe next week. 😉
Just kidding, I think I’ll go a little longer than that.

This week is pretty bitter cold and I am not loving it at all, but today was raining. I happen to love that. Utah doesn’t seem to rain much. Snow, or sun. Those are your choices. Which seems well, except my favorite thing is to sleep when it is pouring down rain outside. Lovely.

Anyway, these Cookies N Creme Chocolate Chip Cookies were pretty darn delicious. But, I had a few cold and I just can’t do cold cookies anymore. I’ve become a warm cookie snob. We literally nuke every single cold cookie before eating it. It’s either fresh out of the oven or 5-8 seconds in the microwave at this house. I loved that creamy white chocolate in the cookie, but my favorite was actually the little cookie bits from the candy bar. I loved the extra texture.

Do give these babies a try and let me know how it goes!

How Do You Soften Hard Cookies?
