The History Of White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies

When I was in college a good friend of mine made these cookies.  Marie is an amazing baker and loves chocolate!   She was always fattening me up with some sort of delicious baked good. On this particular occasion she sent me home with a small plate of these beautiful cookies.  On my drive home I decided to sample one.  Before I made it home the ENTIRE plate was gone!  Whoops.  Ever since then these have been an absolute love.

The Importance of Salt in Baking

I mentioned using Redmond Real Salt in this recipe.  Many question why you would use salt in a sweet recipe.  Salt is really important in baked goods.  It:
  • increases crust color
  • enhances the flavors
  • salt strengthens gluten, making everything bind together better
  • salt activates the baking soda, allowing your baked goods to rise
So don’t skimp on the salt!  Real Salt is our favorite for its slightly sweet flavor.  We also love that it is mined here in the US, and is the only pink salt not imported from overseas.

Can I Freeze White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies?

Yes!  I freeze these babies all the time!  You can freeze them completed, or you can freeze them prior to adding the jam.  Store them in an airtight container or freeze bag.
