Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies

Raspberries and white chocolate and cream cheese…oh my goodness, have I got a new favorite cookie!  Chef Jan Marie posted the recipe here on Food.com and I knew I had to give it a try.

The cookies are just the slightest bit chewy and the flavors of raspberry and white chocolate are to die for delicious.  I won’t even tell you how many I’ve eaten! 

It’s really sad, but my waistline is so going to hate me for ever trying this recipe.  What can I say though?  I’m a sucker for raspberries and white chocolate combined together!

Although the recipe states to put the dough on an ungreased sheet, I don’t recommend it.  The first cookies I baked really stuck to the baking sheet and I basically had to pry them up.  I greased the sheets before baking the remaining dough and the cookies came up with no problems.

Here is the recipe… 

2 boxes Jiffy raspberry muffin mix
1/2 t baking soda
4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 stick unsalted butter, softened 
1/4 c brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs
1 1/2 c white chocolate chips

In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and cream cheese; mix well.  Add the eggs, baking soda, and brown sugar; mix well.  Add the muffin mix and white chocolate chips. Mix well and chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.  Drop dough with a spoon onto an ungreased baking sheet, about 2” apart.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

My cookies were done  after 10 minutes.  Longer baking made them too crispy for my family’s taste.
