Raspberry and White Chocolate Cookies



In March, I held a giveaway for Veggie Mama's first blogobirthday... and these delicious cookies were the prize for one lucky recipient. What's a birthday without presents?

The problem was, they were really good. Like, really good. And it was very difficult not to eat several one as I was packing them up to be shipped to New South Wales. I couldn't stand it. I had to make another batch. I'm not into sharing food! I'm the kind of person that eats popcorn one kernel at a time, and have to defend my stash from the handful-grabbers... I'm always left with less than a third of the goods after I've shared with another. Plus I just really like food, and want it all to myself!

Now, though, I can share with y'all by giving YOU the recipe and you can make 'em. And I'll go take a nap.


Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup frozen raspberries
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Heat your oven to 180C.

2. Cream butter and sugars until fluffy. It will be much easier if your butter is softened beforehand. I usually make biscuits at the drop of a hat and have only rock-hard butter. short bursts in the microwave is a winner!

3. Add egg and vanilla.

4. Mix in flour and baking powder. Stir in half the white chocolate chips.

5. Drop tablespoonsful on a tray covered in baking paper. Press in some raspberries and chocolate chips. I do this so they don't break down in the batter and go all squished and turn the batter a weird colour, especially if they're frozen. But you can do it however you like.

6. Bake 15-20 minutes until lightly browned and cool on a wire rack.

7. Post some to me.

    Haha I know the feeling. It's so good that you figure you can try just one while you're packing them up and then before you know it they're all gone! :P

  9. Can only fit one tray in the oven at a time, so half a batch still in the bowl.... STOP EATING THE COOKIE DOUGH MARDI!
