the 34 cookies of Christmas: day 28

As we enter the final stretch of our comprehensive review of the 34 varieties of cookies prepared during the 2006 holiday season, we focus on a cookie prepared for the first time this year. Based loosely in design on my mother's favorite cookie we make (the Viennese Shortbread cookies with mocha buttercream), this cookie hopes to capture a flavor combination enjoyed by many of our customers: chocolate and raspberries. We started with a Dutch chocolate sandwich cookie, which we filled with a whipped ganache comprised of creamy white chocolate, fresh raspberries, and Chambord (tm) liqueur. To finish these sinfully rich cookies, we drizzled the finest quality Belgian white chocolate over the top, creating both a delightfully smooth finish and beautiful contrast to the chocolately cookies. In our opinion, this new cookie is sure to stand the test of time, and return in future years!
