It’s not often I see fresh fruits in cookies. Usually, it’s of the dried variety: raisins, apricots, cherries, cranberries. So when I saw One Bowl White Chocolate Macadamia Raspberry Cookies on Cookie Madness, I was greatly tempted and inspired.
I made them a few weeks ago, leaving out the macadamia nuts since the nut store near my house was out of them. Next time, I’ll be sure to add them, as I’m betting they give the cookies a great other texture, crunchy and different.
However, even without them, these cookies are a pretty tasty something! The white chocolate blends perfectly with fresh raspberries. The raspberries cut a bit of the sweetness of these, but not much – these are almost insanely sweet, rich and decadent cookies. They’re certainly not as pretty as those posted on Cookie Madness (I believe my raspberries were a bit too ripe, and ended up turning to delicious juicy mush), but they are one awesome cookie!
White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies
adapted from Cookie Madness
Makes 2 dozen
8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt plus an extra 1/8 tsp
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/3 cups flour
2/3 cup lightly salted macadamia nuts, barely chopped
4-5 ounces white chocolate, cut into chunks (I used Lindt)
1/2 cup (more or less) fresh raspberries , washed and dried
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Cream butter and both sugars with an electric mixer. Beat in eggs, vanilla and cream, then beat in baking soda, salt and cornstarch. Add flour and stir just until blended. Stir in nuts and white chocolate. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheets.
3. Carefully slice raspberries into halves or quarters – this will vary, depending on how much raspberry you want in your cookies and how large your raspberries are. Gently press pieces of raspberry in cookie dough rounds
4. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
