chocolate raspberry cookies

raspberry chocolate cookiesas you probably know by now i am a big fan of the chocolate raspberry combination. there are the just awesome chocolate raspberry brownies, the chocolate raspberry cake, the chocolate raspberry truffles or the chocolate raspberry tarte. a few weeks ago when i was visiting my parents at wonderful grundlsee for a few days of snowboarding, i of course wanted to bake them something. since i had to take a train for 4 hours (with surprisingly only 1 time changing trains), i had to be something easy to transport. so these chocolate raspberry cookies were just perfect. i saw the recipe in “lecker” and immediately had to put it on my “to-bake” list.

i was a bit surprised by the texture of the cookies, which reminded me more of cake. the cookies were rather soft and not dense and chewy like you would expect from cookies. none the less they were pretty good.

since the raspberries are only thawed a bit, work quickly when folding them into the dough, otherwise the dough will be too firm, because the raspberries cool it down quite a bit.

  • 100 g chocolate
