White Chocolate Snickerdoodles

Dear 2012,
Be good to me.
PS If you aren't, at least provide cookies.

If your 2012 isn't starting out so well, make cookies. It's my solution to all of life's problems. Cookies and chocolate. They cure all life's bumps.
These cookies are a delicious twist on the classic snickerdoodle. I have yet to meet someone who won't eat a good snickerdoodle. Sugary, cinnamony, buttery. What more could you ask for? Well after you try these, you're going to want to put white chocolate in all your snickedoodles. Delish.
