peanut butter white chocolate oatmeal cookies.
I’m pretty sure my cookie snobbery reaches all the way back to my childhood, when my mother would (thankfully) insist on making our own cookies from scratch rather than (gasp!) buy pre-made cookies! Oh the horror! The days when I finagled my way into a box of Oreos were few and far between.
But now I’m grateful for the lessons in cookie snobbery.
A fresh-from-the-oven, homemade batch of cookies is a quick go-to treat, an easy but thoughtful dessert if you have last minute company, and is far less expensive than store-bought (and so much better too!).
Often I’ll whip up some dough and keep extra on hand in the freezer in case we have friends drop by OR it’s 10 o’clock at night and I just want a
bite bowl of cookie dough. It’s great for that too.
Nevermind what they say about raw egg…
