White Chocolate Pretzel Cookies

I think I’m on Christmas meltdown.  

In a mere two days I’ll be cooking breakfast and going house hopping to see relatives.  But for now, I’m hitting the stores after work (like 10pm) to grab last second gifts and hiding wrapped presents from the boys.  Eddie  hasn’t learned he shouldn’t just start ripping them open yet.  Boys.  

At least I have some delicious cookies to ease the insanity I’m feeling.  I’m just glad we are all home and cozy and getting to have a wonderful holiday together.  And that I have cookies and coffee.  They’re important too.
