May’s Calendar Recipe – White Chocolate Chip Raspberry Cookies made with Greek Yogurt

One of my favorite things to do at my job is create new recipes using our new products.  Fleishmanns® Simply Homemade® Muffin and Bread Mix, Specially for Greek Yogurt, is one of our newest to hit the market.  I loved creating new recipes for these mixes.  The mixes are available in 3 different flavors, Lemon Poppyseed, Raspberry, and Banana.  The following recipe was created to use with our Raspberry mix.  As always, quick, easy and DELICIOUS!!!

Raspberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 3 dozen cookies
Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 12-20 minutes

1 package Fleishmann’s® Simply Homemade® Raspberry Muffin and Bread Mix
2/3 cups Greek yogurt
1/3 cup butter, softened
½ cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 (12 ounce) package of white chocolate chips
1 (8 ounce) package yogurt covered cranberries or chocolate covered cranberries, optional but yummie

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a medium size mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add yogurt and egg. Stir until well combined. Add raspberry mix and continue mixing just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips and yogurt covered cranberries. Refrigerate batter 15-20 minutes (this prevents cookies from spreading).

Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool.

Lemon Poppyseed Bars

Sometimes you just have to have a refreshing dessert.  As part of my job as an R&D Consulting Chef for ACH Food Companies, I get to “inventorize” (new word) recipes made with our products.  This truly is one of my favorites, next month’s is another.  I hope you enjoy these bars as much as we all did testing and tasting them.  Quick, easy and just delicious!  This would make a very refreshing dessert for your Easter Sunday Dinner.
