The other day a poll taken among co-workers asked about their favorite cookie. More than one (actually three) stated the raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake cookie from Subway ranked as #1. Yes, you read that right. Subway. The terrible sandwich store. I assumed they were kidding. They weren’t.
I wasn’t going cookie against cookie for fear of destroying my baking confidence. To show my appreciation for their hard work, I created the cheesecake version of their favorite cookie. I used my favorite cheesecake recipe from the Joy of Baking with some slight variations, such as raspberries and white chocolate chips. Here is the result:
They liked it. Some even said they may have liked it more than the cookie. A couple points scored for the confidence. But then it left me bewildered. Which came first? The cookie or the cheesecake?
