Maastricht’s marijuana selling coffee shops will ban most foreigners under the belief that they bring an unwanted element into the shops, as foreigners, why don’t we just stick to dutch cocoa cookies and chocolate?

1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour

1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips or chunked white chocolate
Chocolate Cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, place rack in center of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment.
Beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated. Sift, together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt and then add to the butter and egg mixture. Mix just until incorporated. Fold in the the chocolate chips.
Using a small ice cream scoop or two spoons, place about 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter on the prepared baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart.
