I had a really bad day yesterday, which is pretty abnormal for me. I was all types of aggravated, upset, angry. Not even my caribbean coffee fro-yo could cheer me up. I needed some cookies, stat. So last night when I finally made it home (around 9 pm) I decided to whip up a batch of peanut butter cookies, but they wouldn’t have been naughty enough without some extra sweetness, so I decided to throw some white chocolate chips in the batch. I think these might be the best peanut butter cookies I’ve ever made…
They were so soft and actually very light, I think it’s because of the way I whipped the batter even after the flour was added. I loved it! I’m so happy they turned out as good as they did. I really needed something to go my way! At least the cookies didn’t let me down…
I also meant to bring most of them to work today but of course this morning, with my head still reeling from yesterday, I picked up the container & put them down…some where. I didn’t realize I didn’t have them until I got into the office! I know I left them in my house so at least I still have some amazing cookies to drown yesterday’s sorrows in. Any reason to eat more will do, right??
I’m just hoping that my adorable munchkin of a puppy didn’t get to them.
