Notes

Folding In White Chocolate Chips: The white chocolate chips can be folded into the batter or you can press the chips into the cookie when you place them on the baking sheet. You can also leave the white chocolate chips out and simply drizzle on the melted white chocolate once they have cooled. ( I prefer it with the chips added into the batter)
Melting White Chocolate Chips: To melt the white chocolate chips, I placed them in a glass dish and placed them in the microwave until partially melted. Then I stirred them up and thinned it out with a few drops of vegetable oil.
