These were very quick and easy to make. After I cleaned up and put everything away they were just calling my name. I had to have one or two. OK, I had three!
But, cookies just are not as good without a big cold glass of milk to go with them.
I must tell you. It was very relaxing and calming out there. It was as if all my senses were being used.
I could see the pretty plants and flowers. I could hear the birds chirping. I could feel the cool breeze against my skin. I could smell the fresh baked cookies. Then of course, I could taste the flavors of the nuts, white chocolate and all the other wonderful things that went into the cookies.
The cold milk was the icing on the cake. Just perfect.
I thought I would post the recipe so you too can make these. I know school is getting ready to start and sending your little one with some homemade cookies is a great way of saying I love you.
