A delicious treat that is a cross between a cookie and a brownie. Perfect for July 4th, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day!

I was 9 years old when I moved from Nigeria to the United States. My parents hope was to offer us a better life here in the US. Once I arrived here though, I didn’t quite realize the move was permanent. It wasn’t until I started school that it dawned on me that there was no going back.

I won’t lie, at the time I hated living here because in addition to experiencing a huge culture shock, I had no friends and the kids in school were mean. I missed my life in Nigeria, in addition to my friends, school, and home.

At the time, I didn’t fully understand the value of living in the United States until I went to college. It was there that I formed my own identity, opinions and was able to make my own choices in life.

As a woman, I realize how blessed I am to be living in a country where we each have a voice. I wouldn’t have this life anywhere else in the world and I am so eternally grateful my parents made the move because I know their struggle wasn’t easy.

On that note, I wish you all a Happy Fourth! May you recognize the true value and beauty of living in the United States.

    I made this recipe yesterday and the cookies turned out great. Also, I thought I was adding a lot of sugar to the recipe but the cookies are perfectly balanced in terms of sweetness. I like my treats not too sweet but sweet enough to satisfy my sweet cravings and these cookies hit that mark! Super easy to make and the pictures actually helped me more than the description.

    Great recipe!!! So much fun to make for Valentines Day for the teens !! They ate half before they even cooled!! Awesome combo with the white chocolate chips !! Always hard to find a good different cookie recipe when you have a “nut” allergy child- it was perfect treat !! Highly recommend this great cookie recipe !!!

    These turned out amazing! Made them with bittersweet chocolate chips instead of the white for the holidays and the whole family enjoyed them. Gave the cookies a little pat when they came out of the oven so they spread a little and have the aesthetic cracks, and served these warm cookies with Mexican Vanilla ice cream. So SO good!!

  4. I love red velvet cookies and white chocolates. And these cookies look so pretty and dreamy. YUM.

  5. HOLY YUM! these look so good. and I had no idea you were from Nigeria. I cried a little reading your post because although I was born here I am clear how lucky I am to be here even though its not perfect and we have our own set of challenages, I truly feel free and able to chase after what I want. Happy fourth even though its super belated. And I am so glad you and your family are here too, diversity makes the USA so great! xoxo

    1. Awww thanks! Such a sweet comment. Yes, you are so lucky to be here! 🙂 Diversity is so important. I hope we will see world peace in our lifetime. Thanks… cookies are great. 🙂

    1. Ohhh.. yeah makes sense cause the links I clicked on didn’t look like the ones you were wearing. Thanks so much Tanvi!

  6. What great looking cookies! Bet they taste better than they look — which is pretty darn good. Thanks!
