Spumoni Cookie Recipe

As requested, my recipe for Spumoni cookies. These are similar to regular chocolate chip cookies, but made with white chocolate, dried cherries, and pistachio nuts. Mmm, I might need to make another batch!


Spumoni Cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour                                   1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt                                                            1/2 cup butter, softened

½ cup shortening                                                      3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar                                    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs                                                                  1 cup dried cherries

1 cup pistachio nuts, shelled                                  2 cups white chocolate, chips or chopped

Preheat oven to 375F.

Combine first 3 dry ingredients in a small bowl. Mix sugars, butter, and shortening in a large bowl,  beat until creamy. Add vanilla, then eggs, one at a time and mix well each time. Gradually add in flour mixture and beat well. Stir in chocolate, cherries, and nuts. Drop by generous tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire racks. Cool completely before storing in a sealable container. Dough or baked cookies freeze well.

  1. These sound so good! I remember trying Spumoni Ice Cream for the first time when I was in college over 25 years ago.
