It has been one H-E-double-hockey-stick-acious week for me.
Extra early mornings and extra late nights so the weekend is verrrrry welcome. (But it also makes me appreciate my usual schedule!) I was wise and prepared in advance though: I made a batch of these cookies last weekend and they have been my late night indulgence all week long.
This cookie is my own creation- from the dough (I make a couple thousand cookies every week so I'm beginning to figure out what makes an awesome cookie) to the choice of chip (white chocolate chips this time, no crazy salt and vinegar), to the cinnamon sugar coating. Just a little something I dreamed up and it turned out fabulous; soft and chewy with the perfect ratio of pb to white chocolate to cinnamon. Yay me! And yay weekend!
