Yum! I don’t bake often, and I admit I am really not that good at it. I prefer cooking to baking, probably because baking requires more precision which is not my natural way.
But this recipe is SO good, and the perfect cookie to enjoy on a brisk fall day. I got this recipe out of my (former) neighborhood cookbook, from my good friend Debi.
I distinctly remember about a year ago (probably the last time I baked cookies) her son was at my house and the boys were enjoying whatever cookie I had just made. Her son informed me my freshly baked cookie was “good” but “not as good as his mom’s pumpkin white chocolate chip cookies”. I didn’t forget that, he definitely raised the bar–or at least piqued my curiosity to see just how good those cookies really were.
So, when I found I had the recipe in this fabulous cookbook my neighbors had joined together to make a few years back, I had to try it. I think that her son was right on, these are really good! Just be warned, the recipe makes enough to share.
