White Chocolate Lorna Doone Pudding Cookies

When not munching on homemade, one of my favorite store-bought cookies are Lorna Doone shortbread. Always one to experiment, I tossed four packages of them into my white chocolate pudding cookie dough batter. (I only quartered them as they continue to break up as you stir the dough). The Lorna Doones gave a great little crunch and were a wonderful buttery accent to the smooth white chocolate.
