WHITE CHOC & RASPBERRY COOKIES

raspberry cookies Cookies have to be my all time favourite treat to not only eat but bake as well. These White Chocolate and Raspberry Cookies are super easy to make and taste amazing. If you cannot find dried raspberries any dried fruit works well in this recipe. Next time I think I will try some goji berries or mango pieces.

** WHAT YOU WILL NEED **

2 cups of flour, sifted
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup melted white chocolate
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup dried raspberries (I bought mine from a Health Store)

raspberry cookies

** WHAT TO DO **

Preheat your oven to Moderate and grease and line your baking tray/s. In a large bowl cream together your sugar and butter along with the flour. Once the mixture has lightened and the sugar has dissolved stir in your melted white chocolate and dried raspberries. Now gradually sift in you flour and knead your mixture until a soft dough has formed. Roll your dough into tablespoon sized balls, flatten and place about an inch apart on your pre-prepared baking trays. Bake for about 15 minutes or until just golden. Makes about 15 cookies.
