Strawberries and Cream Cookies

I should say right here that I unabashedly love Valentine’s Day.  I don’t care that I’m single or that it’s a holiday manufactured by Hallmark to sell cards.  It’s a day about love, all sorts of love, and I think that is a beautiful thing.  With that said, these snarky passive aggressive Valentine’s Day cards are too funny not to share.

I think these cookies are the perfect Valentine’s Day treat.  They’re chewy cookies loaded with white chocolate chips and dried strawberry bits.  And they’re puurtty.

I made these for my SBA meeting on Monday and dubbed the board members my surrogate main squeezes.  After trying these cookies, none of them were complaining.

I think what I love most about this recipe is that it really is a one bowl cookie.  You all know how much I hate doing dishes, so I’m always happy to have an easy cleanup after baking!
