I haven't had this much fun with a cookie in quite a while.

Okay, okay, listen. I know what you're thinking.


What the hell kind of messed up looking cookie is that?


Well, we were going for a simple raspberry cheesecake cookie. We ended up with some of the funniest things I've ever seen come out of my oven.


The good news? They're delicious. White chocolate and raspberry are classic flavors together, and the chocolate especially shines here (for the flavor and the potential to make funny little faces in your cookies).


The bad news is that the raspberries, when they shmear into your dough, do not keep the pretty red color I thought they would. They become a weird grey-purple that makes me think of goblins or zombies or something, which would actually make these pretty solid as Halloween cookies (especially if you smear some raw raspberry on them, like brains or guts or something).


I'm calling them Goblin Cookies because that's what they look like to me: some weird little D&D creature. But the ingredients in them—white chocolate, raspberry, vanilla—along with the egg, all contribute some seriously unapologetic, chaotic, and goofy "I Love Myself™" energy—or goblin energy for short.


But let's talk about what makes them so good for that (besides their funky look)! We're focusing on a few simple ingredients today: white chocolate, raspberry, vanilla, and egg.

Magic in Goblin Cookies

As with most red fruits, raspberries are wonderful for all things love. When you consider the thorny aspect of blackberry and raspberry bushes, though, you also get a little bit of protection power in there, too—and when we're looking at self love, that's exactly what we need. We want to be able to love ourselves, and to defend that love from naysayers and people who don't have our bests interests at heart! Combine that with vanilla for mental power, white chocolate for self love & fun, & egg for rebirth, and you are stocked for great magic.


This is the ultimate "screw it" cookie. It perfectly symbolizes those moments you learn to roll with the punches—or, at least, that's what I learned while making them. Water, and maybe a little fire, along with the planets Venus and Pluto, lend the reminder that you are worthy of love and joy no matter what—and that beauty and fun is truly what you decide it is, not what others tell you it is. These are cookies with the power to lift your spirits.

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  2. Beat sugar, butter, and cream cheese together until smooth

  3. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat together until fully mixed

  4. Folk in baking soda and flour until all flour is hydrated

  5. Fold in raspberries, working it in until the dough is saturated

  6. Fold in chocolate chips, reserving some to make into goblin faces after

  7. Scoop onto a baking sheet with a regular tablespoon, spacing them out at least an inch apart

  8. Bake for 15min, or until edges start to brown

For all their wacky appearance, these cookies are really good to pick you up if you're in a rough spot or to share with friends. And they're fun to decorate into cute little goblins, anyway, so it's really a win-win, if you think about it! ♥
