In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make White Chocolate Holiday Cookies. This recipe was provided by Dr. Johnny P. LoveTrain of the channel FBCDJ1620AM. I hope you will visit his channel and give him some support on his quest for 500000 views by the end of January (at which time he will have been on YouTube for 3 ½ years, providing entertainment and inspiration to thousands of viewers. I can vouch for the fact that the cookie recipe he provided is out-of-this world delicious, and I am proud to add it to my collection! Rick and I restrained ourselves by having only one cookie between us and gave the rest of the baked cookies away. We will, however, bake the reserved cookie dough to grace my upcoming Christmas Table!

    The best way is to store them in a tin with a lid that closes tightly.

    Wow, did you hear anything she said? She went over that in the beginning. Also, my white chocolate chip bag clearly states Ghiraardelli chocolate premium baking chips. All Natural.

    Seems like everything now a days is said to cause cancer. I wouldn’t worry too much about white chocolate chips if you aren’t watching EVERYTHING you do like a hawk.

    2:18 – Did you watch this video at all??

    Betty this isn’t real white chocolate, if it was it would state that on the package. It also has hydrogenated fat in it, which is known to cause cancer. This is a good recipe though, I’ve tried it both with the white chips,before I realized it wasn’t real chocolate. and with white chocolate. It comes out good both ways, but it comes out better and tastier with the real chocolate and it doesn’t burn at all like the white chips tend to do :)
