My daughter went to Subway with some friends last week. She came home RAVING about a new cookie that they have. It is a raspberry cheesecake cookie. She went again this Saturday with her boyfriend and brought one home for me to try. They are soooo delicious. So we decided to look online and see if we could find a recipe to make these at home. While they don't post their recipe, I think we found one close enough.
Sorry there are no pictures as I still can't load any on Gather. Here is the recipe (and a few changes as I have noted).
Makes 2 dozen
8 Tbsps unsalted butter (1 stick) softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
3/4 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp heavy cream
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt plus an extra 1/8 tsp
3 Tbsps cornstarch
1 1/3 cups flour
2/3 cup lightly salted macadamia nuts, barely chopped
4-5 ounces white chocolate, cut into chunks
1/2 cup (more or less) fresh raspberries, washed and dried
1. Preheat oven to 375F
2. Cream butter and both sugars with an electric mixer. Beat in eggs, vanilla and cream, then beat in baking soda, salt and cornstarch. Add flour and stir just until blended. Stir in nuts and white chocolate. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
3. Carefully slice raspberries into halves or quarters - this will vary, depending on how much raspberry you want in your cookies and how large your raspberries are. Gently press pieces of raspberry in cookie dough rounds.
4. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
I didn' use the nuts. Although I love them, i didnt have any and my they Subway cookies did not seem to have them anyway.
I didnt have parchment paper so I just greased and floured the cookie sheet. The cookies did not stick at all so this seemed to work just fine.
I used 1/2 bag of white chocolate chips instead of the white baking chocolate.
1 used frozen raspberries (no fresh available). I drained them and then gently folded them into the dough. It does make the dough a reddish/purple color but tasted just fine. When I can get some fresh raspberries I will try this again with them and add as directed in recipe.
As my daughter said, this is a definate keeper!
We will be adding this to our cookie reportoire!
