Disneyland’s White Chocolate Raspberry Cookie

Tried these for another client dinner tonight – absolutely wonderful!

2 1/2 C flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 C butter, room temperature
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
Raspberry Jam (I used about 4 TBSP)
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Cream the butter & sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg/yolk, vanilla and almond extracts. Mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Add white & semi-sweet chocolate chips.
2. Scoop out about 1/4 of the dough into a smaller bowl. Add about 1 T of jam and cut it in using a butter knife. Be careful not to MIX it, or your dough will turn pink, you want more of a swirl.
3. Take the jam swirled dough and scoop by spoonfuls  (I used a large melon baller/ice cream scoop) onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten slightly with the back of a spoon or spatula and place in a 350° oven for 12-17 minutes. *Your bake time may be less depending on the size of cookie you make. I wanted mine big and bakery sized, so they took a little longer. Take them out when the edges are set but the center is still puffy and soft. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 until all the dough is used.

NOTE:  I made my Raspberry Sauce instead of using the jam.  It has such better flavor and always makes whatever I am making that much better.

1-10 oz pkg frozen raspberries
¼ cup sugar
2 T cornstarch
Thaw raspberries (I rarely remember to do this and it works just fine frozen).  In small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch.  Stir in raspberries with juice.  Cook over low heat until you reach desired thickness (it will thicken as it cools too).  Cool.  Spoon over filled crepes. 

NOTE:  I use this sauce in any recipe calling for raspberry jam – so much more flavorful!  Fabulous over cheesecake and ice cream.
