Lemon & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

~Ok~I have been really silent for the past 2 weeks and I have no excuse mainly because I just been really lazy on posting some of my new recipes that I have made~but not anymore~I apologize but I will not feel guilty. Lets get down it, my newest concoction in the kitchen this time is a an oatmeal cookie, opting for white chocolate instead of raisins( Frankly because I don’t really much care for raisins) and chocolate chips  and adding some nice freshness to the old  Oatmeal cookie~flakes of Lemon zest~hmmmmmmm it is really refreshing to when you take a bite~lemon permeates all the way through the cookie with the sweetness of white chocolate chips~and that icing is that coats it as well~I kid you not I just made a really good summer treat~light and a bit healthy and full off freshness in a cookie~yes~you don’t really get freshness and oatmeal cookies in the same sentence let alone in the same room so~HORRAY~for me for adding thoss two together.
