We in the Denton household LOVE cookies. They rank above almost all sweets, and chocolate chip cookies just might be number one. Mr. Denton’s favorites are white chocolate chip, so when I tried these cookies a couple of years ago at a friends bridal shower I couldn’t wait to try recreating them. The perfect opportunity came about when we were hosting a Paddington Bear viewing party. Orange Marmalade just screams this adorable and often sticky Peruvian bear. They paired quite nicely and got top marks with the whole family.
