Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cookies aka “Terry the Berry” Cookies

The inspiration for these comes from my cousin Terry, who texted me one day wondering if I happened to have a recipe for cookies made with dark chocolate and raspberries.  I didn’t — but I was game.  The issue I’ve had in the past with cookies made with fresh berries is that the fruit tends to bleed out too much liquid and often results in a big mess — or mediocre, soggy cookies.  But after some research, I’ve found that some experienced bakers use frozen berries instead of fresh in their drop cookie recipes.  I decided to give it a try.  It worked.  These Dark Chocolate Raspberry cookies are dense and decadent.  They’re named after my cousin whose nickname in the family is “Terry the Berry.”  I have no idea why we call her that.  She’s also known as “Terry Next Door, ” because, well, she used to live next door. We’re really not that creative.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar.
  3. Add the eggs, corn syrup and vanilla.  Mix until smooth.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chunks and the raspberries.
  7. Roll dough into balls and place about two inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  8. Bake for 12-14 minutes.

*Yield: Approximately 24 cookies

I took a plate of these cookies to a PPO meeting at my kids’ school. Jason and Julia couldn’t keep their hands off them. They must be good.

    Hi Sara,

    Can I use maple syrup as a sub for corn syrup?
