White Chocolate Chip Chocolate Cookies

Nothing can cheer me up better than chocolates, cookiewise of course. It has been a hazy and crazy week, what with the haze related illness and swine flu scare almost caused a panic attack in my working place. Deciding to keep my mind off things, I whipped up another batch of chocolate cookies sans nuts. Its more comforting that way. Smooth, a little softness inside and crunchy on the outside, these cookies are great eaten with cold milk.

Chocolate is one of my simple pleasures in life. I am sure glad that I am not allergic to chocolate.
