JILL BAKES | Raspberry & White Chocolate Cookies




Probably my favourite flavour combination of all time - raspberry and white chocolate, and it just works so well in cookies!

INGREDIENTS…


Makes 10-12 large cookies

125g unsalted butter

100g caster sugar

140g soft light brown sugar

1 large egg and 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature

2 tsp vanilla extract

280g plain flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp fine sea salt

150g white chocolate chips

12g freeze dried raspberries

100g frozen raspberries



 

INSTRUCTIONS…


• Melt the unsalted butter in a small microwaveable bowl for about 30 seconds until fully melted.



• Add the sugars, egg and egg yolk and vanilla into a large bowl. Add the melted butter and mix together with a spoon until fully combined.



• Sieve in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and fold gently to form a cookie dough. Don’t over-mix. 



• Fold in the white chocolate chips, freeze-dried and frozen raspberries. Cover with clingfilm and chill overnight in the fridge, or for at least 4-5 hours.




• When you’re ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 160 degrees fan and line two baking trays with baking paper.


• Use a tablespoon to measure out evenly sized dough balls and roll into balls with your hands. Place on the baking tray and repeat. Leave a good space between each ball as they will spread - I put a maximum of 4 on each tray. 



• Bake for 14-17 minutes until golden on the outside but the pale and squidgy in the middle. Leave on the baking tray for 10-15 minutes to cool down and firm up. The cookies will carry on baking as they cool down.


Top tip: You can freeze the cookie dough balls wrapped in cling film to bake whenever you need a sweet fix! Just cook for an extra couple of minutes.
