I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Raspberry Cream Cheese Cookies

This is a light, cakey cookie with the sweet taste of berries in every bite.

1/4 cup cream cheese, plain or berry (berry is better)
1/4 cup butter
2 tbsps white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup raspberries, quartered if large

Have both the cream cheese and butter at room temperature and beat with both sugars.

Add egg and vanilla.

Mix together the flour, soda and salt then add it, half at a time, to the wet ingredients.

Fold in the raspberries.

Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto silicone or parchment lined baking sheet.

Next I put the baking sheet in the freezer for 5 or 10 minutes so the cookies could set as it is a soft dough. I didn't want to wait by refrigerating the dough for an hour. It worked and I saved time so I'm happy : )

Bake at 350 F for 12-15 minutes
Makes 18 cookies
