Raspberry and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Its been a little difficult to do some baking at the moment as I'm still getting settled into London again but I really wanted to bake some snacking cookies with a difference. Its a twist on a traditional chocolate chip cookies. With the addition of raspberries into the batter gives the cookies a sweeter Summer taste. 




Recipe: Makes 15 cookies (Recipe inspired by Cookies Galore Book)
        100g white chocolate chips
        100g milk chocolate chips
         150g raspberries 
         200g unsalted butter, at room temperature
·       150g golden caster sugar
·       1 egg
·       200g plain flour, sifted
·       1 teaspoon baking power
·       1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Equipment:
·       Electric hand-mixer/Wooden spoon
        Bowl x 3 
        Sieve
·       Teaspoon
·       Tablespoon
·       Masher
        Knife
        Baking Sheet x 2 lined with baking paper/silicone paper

1.  Pre-heat the oven to 180c/350f/Gas Mark 4 and grease the baking sheets with the light oil spray/butter and line with silicone paper.
2.  Take 100g of raspberries and mash them in a bowl until a pulp. Set aside. 
3. Roughly chop up the rest of the raspberries (50g) and set aside. 
4.Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy.
5. Beat in the egg and vanilla to the creamed mixture. Add the raspberry puree at this stage and mix well. 
6. Sift the flour and baking power together and then beat to the cookie batter. 
7.  Add the chocolate chips and roughly chopped raspberries and mix well. Drop rounded tablespoons onto the baking sheets. Make sure sure you space them well apart as they will expand.
8. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Leave the cookies on the baking sheet for about 3 minutes and remove to a wire rack. 

Your cookies should have still be a little soft but not raw. If you do find they are a little raw, don't freak out like I did when I first made these cookies. Simply pick them up carefully and place them back on a baking tray and into the oven for 5 mins. Keep an eye on them because cookies are temperamental and them will burn. 




Bake On! Penny x
