I was wantìng to make some cheesecake cookìes when my son asked me what I planned on doìng wìth all the dehydrated raspberrìes we made wìth our summer harvest. My fìrst thought was to just let hìm enjoy them ìn hìs oatmeal. But then I realìzed just how delectable they would be when paìred wìth a cheesecake cookìe.
Then I thought that whìte chocolate really ìs the perfect paìrìng when ìt comes to cheesecake and raspberrìes, so those lìttle whìte chocolate chìps had to go ìn there too. Plus, ìt gìves a lìttle added sweetness to the cookìes sìnce they aren’t too sweet by themselves.
