If George Zimmer (he's the spokesperson for Men's Warehouse) ever got his hands on one of these, he would have to give up his slogan and find a new one. Are these good?

"I guarantee it."

Raspberry Cheesecake-Filled Chocolate Truffle Cookies

I can't even begin to describe in words how amazing these cookies taste. Imagine taking a truffle, slamming it into a chocolate chunk cookie, then wrapping the entire thing around a creamy raspberry cheesecake filling. This recipe just made sense in my head when I thought about what I absolutely had to make to celebrate the summer, and it makes even more sense now that it's sitting in front of me. Well, not really--if it was sitting in front of me, it'd already be gone. It's safely in the fridge, sealed under copious layers of duct tape and other preventative measures.

Since I didn't have a story to go along with this particular baking adventure (except to say that it is so completely worth embarking on!), I dedicated a list instead that starts off...

10 Ways to Tell You're a Baking Addict
  1. Whenever the word “potluck” comes up, everyone immediately turns to you and asks what dessert you’re bringing.
  2. Every personalized coupon that your grocery store sends you is for something in aisle 10: Baked Goods.
  3. The ads in your Google side bar all relate in some way to sales for colored fondant and tiered-cake dowels. You’re not sure why.
  4. Your day looks bleak and prospects for improvement dim when, by 11:49 PM, none of the food blogs you follow has been updated.
  5. Licking the bowl when you’re finished is not only permissible–it’s a rule.
Of course, like any taste teaser, I'm going to leave off there. But for the rest of the fun ways to tell you're a baking addict, along with the recipe for raspberry cheesecake-filled chocolate truffle cookies, visit my blog

I'd love to hear what you guys think! Happy readings, and happy eatings!

Those look really good! I'm not a big fan of eating like a whole piece of cheesecake, and these cookies sound like just the perfect amount of it (especially with the raspberry). I liked your addicted to baking list as well. :) Lol.
