Nutty White Chocolate Cherry Cookies


It’s Leftovers Club Day! This month I was paired with Sandra from Meadows Cooks. I decided to stick with what I know and make her some awesome cookies. I know that everyone is looking for healthy recipes this month, but I just couldn’t help myself. If it helps, white chocolate isn’t actually chocolate. No? Whatever. Use your cheat day to indulge.
