Intensely Flavored Raspberry Cookies

These cookies are a last minute addition to the menu. The original recipe was on the Smuckers site. Of course I didn't follow the directions....

1 package angel food cake mix
3/4 cup raspberry fruit preserves
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Mix the preserves and the cake mix until it is well blended. This takes a while and seems like it won't work, but it does eventually. Beat for a couple more minutes. The dough is very shiny and sticky. Fold in the chocolate chips. (I was going to use regular sized chips, but I didn't. The big ones would overwhelm the cookies. The minis are perfect.)

Spoon on to cookies sheets sprayed with cooking spray. Well sprayed. Bake at 325 degrees F for 12 minutes.

Next time I will probably add a bit of red food coloring. These are incredibly tasty but the pale pink color is a little bit to subtle to hold up to the lightly browned surface. They are very sticky. We will see if they store for a day. I'll let you know.


  1. I recently made Persimmon cookies. They're spicy with cloves and nutmeg, raisins and walnuts. The dough is sticky but turn out good. Ate almost all of them!

  2. That sounds really interesting. Do you have the recipe posted some place?
