Winter is winding down now and hints of spring are popping up everywhere.  I’m a lucky gal…my winter was basically spring.  When you live in the Middle East, winter can top out at 88F.  But I’m not complaining.  The weather has been amazing.  It’s the summer I have to worry about.  Around these parts, you hear the phrase “Summer is coming” (For all you Game of Thrones fans, you will know exactly what I mean)  120F is no joke!

white chocolate chip almond cookiesHere in the summer baking is a little uncomfortable to say the least.  But there’s no way I’m passing up baking a bunch of these White Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies.  They are possibly one of my favorite cookie recipes, and everyone knows I’m a devout loyal to the classic chocolate chip cookie.  These are super chewy and dense…the only way to have a cookie, and full of sliced almonds that give a incredibly wonderful crunch in every bite.  I went a little overboard with the white chocolate chips, but have you ever heard anyone say “too much chocolate.”?
