These raspberry white chocolate cookies are made using my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s a no-chill recipe that bakes up soft, chewy cookies.

To get the best flavor and texture, I used freeze-dried raspberries. I attempted fresh raspberries but the dough was just too wet and adjusting the dough base to compensate for the excess moisture made the cookies too cakey. Freeze-dried berries offered the tart raspberry flavor without compromising the texture of the cookie.

These cookies are perfect for the novice baker. Just make sure to properly measure the ingredients and you will have perfect results.

The recipe is adapted from my chocolate chip cookies. If you like adding fruit to cookies, you might also want to try my coconut mango chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chunk apricot cookies.

Why This Recipe Works

  • Freeze-dried raspberries offer loads of tart raspberry flavor without sacrificing the chewy texture of the cookie.
  • This recipe bakes up perfectly without needing to chill the dough.
  • The soft chewy texture comes from butter, brown sugar, and an extra egg yolk.

  • Butter: Unsalted sweet cream butter works best and yields a buttery rich flavor.
  • Sugar: Brown sugar and granulated sugar combine for sweetness and texture.
  • Egg: One egg plus one egg yolk gives the cookies chewy centers with crisp edges.
  • Vanilla: Pure vanilla extract tastes the best.
  • Flour: All-purpose flour contains enough protein to add structure without toughening the cookies.
  • Salt & baking soda: Salt balances the sweetness while baking soda helps the cookies spread.
  • Raspberries: Freeze-dried raspberries can be found with the dried fruit at your local grocery store. If you can’t locate them, you can order them online.
  • White chocolate: While I prefer white chocolate chips, you can opt to coarsely chop white baking chocolate and mix that in.

Step by Step Directions

  1. Cream the butter and sugars until fluffy.
  2. Mix in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix to combine.
  4. Stir in the chopped freeze-dried raspberries and white chocolate chips.
  5. Portion the dough with 1.5 tablespoon scoop and arrange on parchment-lined baking sheets.
  6. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are set and centers are puffy.
  7. Let the cookies cool on the sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips For Success

  • Measure the ingredients properly. I highly recommend using a kitchen scale and following the weight measurements. Also, take a moment to read how to properly measure flour.
  • Don’t overmix the dough. Once the flour is added, mix just until no streaks of flour remain. Over-mixing will cause the cookies to be tough.
  • Take care not to overbake the cookies. The edges should look slightly golden near the bottoms and the centers should look underbaked and puffy. They will continue to cook and set from the residual heat once removed from the oven. Overbaking will result in hard, tough cookies.

Can I make these cookies using other berries?

Yes, certainly! In fact, any freeze-dried fruit will work with this recipe.

Can I use regular chocolate instead of white chocolate?

Of course! Dark chocolate pairs beautifully with berries. Semisweet chocolate is also a great option.

Why didn’t my cookies spread?

This is most likely due to improper flour measuring. Use a kitchen scale for the very best results. Or gently spoon the flour into the measuring cup without shaking or packing it down. Once the cup is full, level it off with the back of a butter knife.
