115 g red sangria blend

180 g white chocolate, melted

40 g butter, melted

1 egg

85 g granulated sugar

160 g bread flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

Red food coloring, optional

Red, pink, and orange sparkle sugar mix


1. In large bowl, combine red sangria blend, melted white chocolate, melted butter, egg and sugar; mix to blend..

2. Sift together the flour and baking powder into a separate bowl. Blend the sifted ingredients into the sangria-white chocolate mix. Add few drops red food coloring, if desired. The dough will be loose.

3. Cover cookie dough with plastic wrap touching the surface; refrigerate overnight.

4. Preheat oven to 350 F or 325 F for convection. Scoop cookie dough into 1½-ounce portions onto parchment paper; roll in sparkle sugar mixture and transfer to sheet pans, placing 4 inches apart.
