Cappuccino Cookies

When I was a little kid, I used to get these horrible migraine headaches that would knock me on my butt for the whole day.  My parents tried everything to fix these suckers including eliminating chocolate from my diet.  All I could have was white chocolate.  Let me tell you, a white chocolate is no substitute for the real thing on Easter when you are a kid.  My sister got the real deal, but me, no way.  Needless to say, I have developed a bit of a love/hate relationship with white chocolate.  (As it turns out, chocolate was NOT the cause of my migraines).  I have generally avoided the stuff for years feeling that any cookie made with white chocolate could only be better with dark.  Then just last year I was turned around when I tried the pomegranate white chocolate cookies.  They were amazing, I couldn't get enough.  I knew then I had to include those pale morsels into more of my baking.  Enter: cappuccino cookies from Joy the Baker.  Fantastic.  Truly fantastic.  These babies are packed with espresso powder for a coffee flavored punch and a ton of white chocolate chips for creaminess.

New Name

Well, I have decided to finally do it.  I have decided to change my name here.  Unfortunately Yeast Wrangler just doesn't seem to cover all the bases anymore.  I have branched out into other baking adventures and have been wanting a name that reflects that.  So now, I have decided to go with Heather's Sweets and Treats.  Hopefully I can make the transition smooth, but this is not my forte, so who knows.
