I make no apologies for these white chocolate raspberry cheesecake cookies. Yes, they will ruin your waistline. Yes, you will keep sneaking into the kitchen for “just one more”. Yes, they are downright divine. Yes, they are so worth it. Tiny, little bites of pure cheesecake/cookie perfection. If you are a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake fan then you may have just met your new favorite cookie. Don’t let the size fool you, they are bursting at the seams with all the flavors of a real white chocolate raspberry cheesecake.
You can hardly go wrong with pairing raspberries and white chocolate so I knew from the jump that I would love this cookie. If the recipe looks familiar it’s because the base was taken from my hubby’s infamous chocolate chip cheesecake cookies that I love so much.
Be careful not to overcook these babies. They may not look done when they come out of the oven, but if the bottoms are lightly golden then they are done! The inside texture will look a lil fluffy and doughy but that’s perfect because these cookies need to set in the fridge or freezer to create that wonderful cookie/cheesecake-like texture. Although I can never resist eating a few right out of the oven or even the dough for that matter.
NOTE* These cookies MUST be refrigerated to get the right texture (I like mine from the freezer) and for the glaze to firm up a bit. If you are going to give these away as gifts I’d probably skip the glaze since it doesn’t stay firm for long once left out of the fridge. Or I’d use the recipe for my sugar cookie icing which hardens up nice and shiny.
