One Nutty Date
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare the dough (Step 2), cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Tip: Most brands of white chocolate chips are actually not white chocolate at all; they're called “white morsels” and contain no chocolate. We like Sunspire (made without partially hydrogenated oil), found in natural-foods stores or online at sunspire.com, and the Albertsons/ Shaw's store brand, Essensia. Eight ounces chopped pure white chocolate can be used in place of the chips.
Decorate on parchment: When adding finishing touches to your cookies or cakes, place them on a large sheet of parchment paper before you decorate. The paper catches the excess, making cleanup a breeze.
