Vanilla Chip Molasses Cookies #BringtheCOOKIES

Hello all my new friends!! We are friends, aren’t we? I mean that whole “Any friend of Katrina’s is a friend of mine” thing is legit right? Because if we’re not friends, things are going to get a little bit awkward around here when Katrina finds out. Would it help if I introduce myself? I’m Georganne and I blog over at LilaLoa. I make cookies pretty much every day of my life. It’s what I do.

I don’t normally get to make super fun delicious cookies like these white chocolate chip molasses cookies though. I normally just make regular type delicious cookies. And mostly those cookies end up looking like something besides a cookie. So you can imagine that being part of Katrina’s sparkly blog and her annual cookie event is kind of a highlight of my whole blogging year.

And now that we are really, truly friends, I can also tell you that I brought you a present. It’s these cookies. You get the best of both worlds – festive and seasonal molasses cookies with the comfort and child appeal of the white chocolate chips. Everyone wins. Especially me. Because I love them. And now I have lots of them at my house. And if you wanted to make just dozens of them and have them at your house too, I would be cool with that.

Katrina — Thanks for giving me an excuse to make these! And for sharing all your friends with me. They are fantastic!
