Chocolate Blackberry cookies with a hint of caramel
I had some blackberry puree left from my last baking adventure. the Blackberry muffins, well I didn't want it go to waste so I made these. I combined 3 different recipes to come up with this one.
Heat oven 375
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup blackberry pureed *or what you want*
1/2 cup chocolate melted and cooled *you can use chips, bar or bars with creams in them...I used 1/2 bar of Hersey with caramel and some dark chocolate.
3 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla extract
With mixer or KA cream sugars and butter til creamy. Add eggs 1 at a time, blending well between each. Add chocolate, vanilla and blackberry puree, blend well. Combine flour, salt and baking soda add to other mixture a little at a time til all is incorporated, Drop by teaspoon on an ungreased baking sheet (I always use parchment paper, easy cleanup) Bake for 10-12 minutes until they start to brown on the edges, remove and put on wire rack to cool.
Oh I just tasted one, very yummy and nice texture, not real soft and not hard at all. Hope you try these, a quick easy cookie for an after school snack for the kids or for a brunch or a JUST BECAUSE for yourself and your family.
