Chocolate Chip Black and White Cookies

February 22nd is my blog’s 7th anniversary! (Blogiversary?) Wow, just wow! 717 published posts and I’m still going. I seriously can’t believe it.

This year I decided to use that cookie base again and add festive …

Yes, you can really do that and yes, they really taste just as delicious as the day I baked them. Most people are surprised that you can freeze cookies, but it’s the only way to do it really when you make tons of cookies and obviously aren’t going to make them all in one day. The only trick is trying not to eat them before you …
