Chocolate Raspberry Cookies

Chocolate dish #2: These cookies!

Ok, so if you’ve ever had a thumbprint cookie, then you kind of know what I’m talking about. It’s just basically an orange short-bread cookie with raspberry jelly in the center and drizzled with chocolate. Now who wouldn’t like that?

Orange, chocolate, and raspberry are great combinations, and these cookies definitely take advantage of that! You get the crunchiness of the cookie, the tanginess of the raspberry jelly, and the sweetness of the chocolate all in one bite! Now, the recipe originally called for orange marmalade, but since we had none in the fridge, I just substituted it with raspberry jelly. By all means, use orange marmalade if you’d like, but I really like the chocolate and raspberry together.

Chocolate Raspberry Cookies (Dana Angelo White)

  • 1 c butter, softened
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. orange zest
  • 2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c raspberry jelly
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. milk

Combine the butter and sugar on medium speed. Add the egg yolk and orange zest, scraping the sides occasionally.

Add the flour and mix until it forms a thick dough.

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until it becomes smooth. Form into a ball.

Now if you don’t have one of these tools, then just roll the dough out to about half an inch thickness and use a small, round cookie cutter to make little circles. Otherwise, just roll the dough between your hands and flatten it out.

Then, make an indentation in the middle of the cookie with your thumb.

Now is when you’re going to want to fill the little holes with the jelly.

Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes or until the edges are brown. Cool on a wire rack.

See my Double Boiler post to make a double boiler and melt the chocolate. Drizzle over the cookies and let set on the rack. Enjoy!
