Cookie 21 – Raspberry Dark Chocolate Cookies

More pink cookies in honor of Valentine’s Day! I’m on a kick, I guess. This recipe is heavily inspired by this recipe at Chocolate, Chocolate and More¬†so be sure to go check it out. I think Joan made a very versatile recipe and I encourage you to experiment with it! Aside from a slight negligible change here and there, I did change up the flavors for a raspberry vanilla cookie instead of a cherry white chocolate cookie, and dark chocolate chips instead of white chocolate.

I actually made this and last week’s cookies¬†within two days of each other so my dad could take a bunch of cookies to share with his coworkers, and my dad was so kind as to bring me several bags of phenomenal Sta-Green garden soil because I am mere weeks from starting to turn up the soil for my 2013 garden. I’ve done some light reading to refresh and plan, picked out my seeds, and all I need is for the weather here in Kansas City to warm up a touch so I can get cracking. I’ll be starting my seeds in doors. This can’t happe nfast enough!

Cookie 8: Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten-Free)

Gluten-Free Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 whisked egg white
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Cookie Recipe Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix almond butter, brown sugar, whisked egg white, baking soda, vanilla extract and salt just until blended. Stir in dark chocolate chips with a spatula. Drop into cookie dough balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. (I use my cookie scoop to get consistent sizing.) Bake for about 12 minutes. Slide the parchment paper off of the cookie sheet and onto a cooling rack to cool. This is a very soft and crumbly gluten-free cookie recipe, so let them cool completely before enjoying! Easily one of the least bad-for-you cookies I’ve made, and bonus points for being flourless for those folks with a sweet tooth who also happen to have gluten-free diets.

Chocolate Chip Golden Raisin Oatmeal Cookies Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I soaked my golden raisins in some white wine I had in the fridge and microwaved them briefly to plump them up a bit. This is totally optional. You can also use regular raisins if you like. I just happened to have golden raisins laying around the house. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix the softened butter, white sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix just until blended. Add dry ingredients and oats. Mix. Then add the chocolate chips and golden raisins. Mix just until blended. Bake for about 8 to 12 minutes, or a little longer if you prefer a crispy cookie. Remember – you can always add time, but you can’t take it away, so start small!
