I went to Subway the other day and seen that they had some new raspberry cheesecake cookies. Well, I love raspberries, I love cheesecake, and I most definately love cookies so I thought "what the heck Jamie, get one!" If you have not tried one, stop reading, drive to Subway and get one, then come back and keep reading because I cannot describe how awesome these are!
I really wanted to try making my own so I started searching for some recipes. I came across one and tried it out. Mine did not taste anything like Subway's BUT they were still very good! It also just means I have to keep trying right? Here is the recipe that I used:
8 Tbsps unsalted butter softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
3/4 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp heavy cream
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt plus an extra 1/8 tsp
3 Tbsps cornstarch
1 1/3 cups flour
2/3 cup lightly salted macadamia nuts, barely chopped ( I did not use these)
4-5 ounces white chocolate, cut into chunks (I just used white chocolate chips)
1/2 cup (more or less) fresh raspberries, washed and dried (I could not find fresh raspberries at the time so I bought a frozen bag, this could be one reason why my cookies came out differently)
1. Preheat oven to 375F
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 sheet. ( I had pretty big balls, so my cookies were a bit big)
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. (With the frozen raspberries, I just mixed them right into the dough)
4. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
With the changes that I made to the recipe, my cookies came out very, well, like a muffin top kinda? They were very soft! The pictures will show you how much raspberries I used too! Maybe I went a little overboard but I couldn't help it, I have a weakness for them..
This picture makes me want one right now! But as you can see, the dough is even a little pink which is because I mixed the frozen raspberries in. (Note that I did rinse and pat dry the raspberries before putting them in)
Well, that is my raspberry cheesecake cookie. If anyone has a good recipe for these, I'd really like to hear it! (Then make it, then eat it ;) )
