School is back in session! My kids have already been coming home with flyers announcing fundraisers and bake sales. And that means cookies. :) McCormick sent me a fun package full of several extracts, spices and food coloring to help inspire me to come up with a great bake sale item to share with you. I've always noticed that the bake sale items that sell out most often are based on classics like chocolate chip cookies and brownies. So for my recipe, I put my own twist on a great recipe from McCormick to create Raspberries n' Cream Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies. That's a mouthful, right? A delicious mouthful.
The chocolatey cookie dough is studded with dried raspberries, semi-sweet and white chocolate chips. For an extra boost of flavor, I used McCormick Raspberry and Pure Vanilla extracts in the cookie dough.
I'm part of a team of 5 other fabulous bloggers and we are holding Virtual Bake Sale on Pinterest. How fun is that? Each of my team members have also come up with a drool-worthy recipe for the bake sale. Keep reading to find out how you can "buy" one of these yummy cookies or brownies.
