That is what I did with this recipe! My roommate and I were trying to think of a dessert that I could incorporate raspberry jam into, because I had just bought a delicious jar of it, and I wanted to have a dessert with raspberry in it without actual raspberries, because lets face it, it is summer and they are a little bit spendy.

That is when my roommate (gotta give credit where credit’s due), thought of the idea of just putting jam on top of a chocolate chip cookie. I was like, whaaatttttt?? My mind was blown and also I thought, why didn’t I think of that?

You get the best of both worlds. You have everyone’s favorite cookie, and then you add a little fruity summery pizazz and BAM, you get this recipe. I cannot even tell you how crumbly and delicious they are.

They are not too sweet, because of the low amount of sugar and dark chocolate chips. They have an unexpected consistency of a scone or biscuit. I wasn’t sure what to expect since I was experimenting, but dang, I love the results. They are kind of a mix between a chocolate chip scone and a buttery biscuit with strawberey jam.

I will stop talking about this obsessively and just let you go try it out. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
