I was inspired to make these cookies by a fundraising catalog I was looking through that was selling cookie dough of a similar fashion. I had all the necessary ingredients at home so I looked for a basic recipe that I could build off of. These cookies turned out better than I could have expected. The sweetness of the dried fruit combined with the creaminess of the white chocolate was definitely an awesome combination. The cookies baked up so puffy and delicious. These are definitely a must try!
