Lemon Raspberry Cookies

Recipe by horseplay

Haven't tried these yet, but I got this recipe from Oprah.com along with the Orange Cranberry Cookies which turned out great, so I'm sure these will be nummy too.

I'm not a very experienced cook but I love my cookies. While I was making this recipe, the dough turned almost gummy and was super sticky so I had to coat my hands in flour and the cookie in flour to get it to cooperate. I had put in a lot of lemon zest and I threw in some homemade raspberry jam to give it some more flavor of raspberry. I put in more white chocolate chips than was written. I also didn't understand what was meant by "fold in raspberry" so when it came to form the cookies, I flattened them and stuck a raspberry in the middle and folded the cookie around it. They came out as mounds with raspberries in the middle. The taste of them was actually quite pleasant. The batter was sweet and mixed well with the raspberry and lemon. It tastes more like a shortbread cookie than anything else. While I do not like how the recipe is worded, with a little improvisation, my cookies came out fantastic and look more appealing than the picture.
