Hot Polka Dot


I'm sick of being sick.

I've been flat on my back eating nothing but handfuls of chicken noodle soup and crackers. Before you start to wonder how exactly you go about clutching a fistful of soup let me distract you with these cookies.

Feel better?

Me too. For now. Otherwise I'd still be asleep and not sharing this recipe with you.

Funny how sometimes you feel worse after starting a course of antibiotics than before. I'd almost rather take my chances with my ear infection than take another one of those giant pills. Almost.

It's the ten day antibiotic crash diet. Emphasis on the word crash.

All the cool kids are doing it. Lose ten pounds in ten days. You'll be half conscious while shuffling around the house like a zombie in wrinkled pjs and sporting unwashed bed head, but hey you'll look fabulous.

Ok so this is getting a little random, a smidgen bitter and my head is starting to feel a bit fuzzy so I'll just shut the heck up and let the cookies speak for themselves.

Raspberry White Chocolate Cookies

Makes 4 dozen cookies.

Source: My imagination.

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips/chunks
1/2 cup raspberry jam

Printer-Friendly Version

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and position a rack in the center. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper and set them aside.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla then blend it in. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt then blend it into the butter mixture. Last, but not least, mix in the white chocolate.

Scoop a heaping tbsp of dough onto the prepared baking sheet for each cookie then round and smooth them with your fingertips. Spoon about 1/2 – 1 tsp of raspberry jam onto each cookie then, using a small paring knife, marble the jam into the cookie dough. Bake them for 10 – 11 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Transfer them to a cooling rack and enjoy!

  2. Oh Lindsey! What’s going on?! I hate to hear you’re not well! I’m sending some good-health-universe-thoughts over, so get better soon my dear!

  3. I sure hope you feel better really soon. We call these antibiotics “horse pills” around here.
    Your cookies look delicious, love the little swirl effect!

  4. I feel your pain. I’ve been sick all week! I’m sure these cookies will make me feel better though. Hope you feel better soon! :)

  5. My poor, sick, Canadian friend…whenever my friends and I are sick, we tell each other “poor baby”…and for some reason, it does help. Sympathy has healing powers, I tell you.

  6. Being sick in the summer is always more painful than being sick in the winter, get better soon! I’m sure those cookies will help!

  7. These cookies look awesome! I think I’m starting to get sick…and making them would totally make me feel better. Hope you’re getting better soon!

  8. I am a HUGE white chocolate fan, I definitely think I will be eating these in the very near future, thanks for sharing and do get well soon, I can’t imagine what your bed must look like with you laying on your back eating handfuls of soup, ohhh, the mess…lol!

  9. Lindsey, the raspberry swirls in the cookies look lovely! Did you make these while you were sick? Poor thing, do get well soon. Can’t wait to see what cookies come out of your imagination when you’re WELL!

  15. You sound in rough shape. But the cookies look very nice!

  16. Get well!! Nice cookies….

  17. delicious cookies and lovely pictures

  18. Hope you feel better !! This has to be like my fav store bought cheesecake recipe ( raspberry white chocolate from cheesecake factory) in a cookie !! What’s not to love about it !!!

  19. I am sorry you have not been feeling well, hope you are better soon…These cookies do look wonderful :)

  20. I found a way to get rid of ear infections in 24 to 48 hours without taking antibotics. Mix equal amounts of rubbing alcohol wit brown apple cider vinegar. Tilt ear sideways and drop a few drops in. Let sit for a few seconds and then drain out. The cider kills the bacteria and the alcohol dries up the moisture. Do this three times a day until infection is gone. This has worked on my kids every single time.

  21. I hope you get much better very soon! On the plus side, you have made some totally amazing looking cookies :)

  22. Hope you feel better! Being sick sucks! But these cookies definitely don’t and I can’t wait to try them out!

  23. I just made these and they are quite good. The only issues is that they are slightly scone-like… both in consistency and taste. Not very sweet or chewy for a cookie. I’m not sure if that’s because I halved the recipe or what.

    • That’s quite strange, Patricia. I didn’t find them lacking in sweetness or scone-like at all. They very much tasted like chocolate chip cookies except with white chocolate and jam. I’m glad that you liked them a little bit regardless. :)

  24. Perhaps I didn’t smooth them out or make them flat enough, but they came out a little too cake-y, and the batter was a little too thick to swirl the jam in completely. That aside, they were DELICIOUS, and I’m definitely going to make them again with a few changes!

  25. I love the layout of your blog. Very nice cookies too.
