White House Cookies

Back in 2002, I met my friend Lance Ware for the first time. He was making his first visit to my office as my financial products advisor for State Farm. He brought a batch of these cookies with him for me and the ladies at my office. We loved them! His wife Jennifer had made them and of course I had to have the recipe. She graciously obliged. The only variation we’ve made is adding some type of chip. We’ve added butterscotch and milk chocolate, but I think our favorite is white chocolate. I don’t have a big sweet tooth, but I love making these for my Friday friends that do.

1 cup brown sugar

John and Dan both have a sweet tooth and love it when White House Cookies show up at our Friday Night Porch Party.
