Oh my goodness. These are the simplest yet most delicious cookies I have made in a long time. Things with White Chocolate in them are usually a little hit or miss, but everyone loved these (even the buds who don’t like white chocolate). Who knew that a little bit of salt could go such a long way? Don’t answer that…
