Don't these sound awesome?
And don't they look awesome?
They do, don't they?
It's like a cappuccino in a cookie.
I mean, really?
What else could be better?
The espresso granules kinda crunch ever so slightly when you bite into the cookie.
And the white chocolate chips melt in your mouth, like the cream of the cappuccino.
I really wish I would have made more.
Because they are definitely all gone and all this talk about white chocolate melting makes me want more.
