what i made for monday-white chocolate snickerdoodles

Julie posted this recipe forever and a day ago...onto my to-do list it went.  And sat. 
I bought the snickerdoodle mix months ago and it sat. 
Then in my search of what to make for this Monday it resurfaced.  And I had a cookie jar to fill. 

Now a disclaimer.  I'm lazier than Julie.  And our personal family crest says something to the effect of "thou shall not put fruit in cookies unless there is oatmeal to go with it therefore making them a breakfast food" or something like that.  The wording is fuzzy to me. 

So I tweaked Julies recipe just a bit...making them lazy and not as good for you but still AMAZING.  Like go find some snickerdoodle mix to make these, AMAZING! 

I have no trouble finding it at Target on a regular basis. 
So here you have it.  My version of Julies version of Betty Crockers version of this amazing snickerdoodle cookie.  I'll call it "white chocolate snickerdoodles".

Make them today and you will not regret it.

You need:
1 pouch Betty Crocker snickerdoodle cookie mix
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon water
1 egg
1 bag white chocolate chips

Beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth.

Add water, egg and cookie mix (setting aside cin/sug mixture) to cream cheese mixture.
Mix until soft dough forms.  Add the white chocolate chips.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

(Here comes the lazy part).

Place ping pong ball sized balls of dough two inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.  Sprinkle generously with the cinnamon and sugar mix.

Bake a 375ยบ for 8-9 minutes until edges are golden brown.  The tops may still look very light.
Cool a minute or two then transfer to cooling rack.  Resist the urge to eat them all.  If you are planning on sharing them like I am do that IMMEDIATELY!!

Thanks for sharing Julie!!

And I've been piddling around with wire and beads.  I've been wanting to teach myself to make these cute bird nests forever now and a photo of one popped up on my IG feed prompting a trip to Joanns.

A little bit later and here you have it.  I think this particular one would be wonderful for a foster mom...because of the rainbow of kids she is sure to see in her life! :)

Hope your Monday is SUPER! :)
