Cookies and Cream Chocolate Cookies

Yummy cookies and cream chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips that are next best thing to Oreo's!

Let me just start off by disclosing one thing –

I am not a cook.

Never have been, never will be.

But…

I do love to bake. Cookies, cakes, desserts, you name it – I love it! (Drives my dentist crazy, but I can’t help that I was born with a sweet tooth, and it occasionally helps that I can keep him in business.) 🙂

This weekend, I was itching to make some cookies, but I really didn’t have time to drive to the store for ingredients, and it seemed like every recipe I came across had ingredients that would require a trip to the store. Luckily, I found a great recipe in the nick of time, but it was going to require a bit of tweaking based on what I had on hand. Instead of them being “Double Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies,” my plan was to turn them into “Cookies and Cream Chocolate Cookies.”

Cookies and Cream Chocolate Cookies

Not only was I itching to make cookies in general, but hubby, brother, and father-in-law have been at my house all day working on an outdoor house project. I knew that something homemade and from scratch would be just the thing to keep them happy.  

All the ingredients in this recipe are things that I had on hand in my kitchen – some I didn’t even realize that I had bought – and it thrilled me that I could finally do something that I’ve always read about: cooking from your pantry. Cooking from my pantry has never been a successful venture until today. I can’t wait to try it again (especially if it involves more baking)!

So go ahead – whip up a batch of these delicious Cookies and Cream Chocolate Cookies, and enjoy them with a tall glass of cold milk. I guarantee you’ll love every bite – hubby, brother, and father-in-law ALL enjoyed them!
