So, finals week is officially over and to say that I’m relieved would be a HUGE understatement! I could probably count the hours of sleep that I got over the past week on my fingers and toes but it was definitely all worth it. As these final grades have started to roll in, I’m all smiles because all of the hard work is shining through!
So now I have just one more class to take in the summer…Chemistry (yikes) and then I’m all done and ready to skip along to nursing school (hopefully)! Nursing school is so competitive but I’m keeping my faith strong. However, before I return to school and let the stress take over me again, I’ve decided to enjoy these two months to do what I love to do best…cooking and baking!
We’re kicking off this fab summer break with a warm batch of soft, chewy, White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies with chopped walnuts. Whew, that was a mouthful.
Fun fact: this was actually my first time making these cookies so I’m really happy with how they turned out! I usually just make my good ol’ chocolate chip oatmeal cookies but I decided to do a little switch-a-roo with the recipe because I was feeling risky. Okay, all I really ended up doing was substituting the semi-sweet chocolate chips for white chocolate and then threw in some dried cranberries and walnuts but the end result…. perfection!
I love these cookies because they’re not too sweet which means that they would be perfect as a little breakfast grab n go or as a yummy dessert (or both, go ahead…. I’m not judging).
