FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Why don’t you use any baking powder or baking soda for these cookies?

Many cookie recipes call for either (or both) baking powder or baking soda. However, when this recipe was tested using them, the cookies turned out more cake like. I was going for thick and chewy raspberry cookies, so this recipe worked best without either baking soda or powder. As you can see, they turn out fantastic.

Can I use fresh raspberries?

I do not recommend using fresh raspberries because they’ll release too much of their liquid, too quick, messing with the cookie batter and ruining the texture of the cookie. I suggest using frozen raspberries since they’ll release the moisture from the berries much slower while baking and you’ll have cookies with a nice texture. It can seem confusing, but just stick to the frozen berries. That’s what worked best when I tested this recipe.
Also, I should note that you will always get more consistent results using the frozen raspberries. They are picked at the peak of ripeness, then frozen. I am never sure why folks think fresh is always better than frozen but it just isn’t the case. Fresh raspberries can vary in tartness for many reasons: how long they’ve been sitting out, how far they had to travel, etc. can all affect levels of freshness and sweetness.

Should I thaw my frozen raspberries first?

Nope! No need to go through the extra work. I just suggest that you fold the frozen raspberries in carefully to the dough, don’t just mix them in with an electric mixer or they’ll burst and create all pink cookies, not the marbled effect you would get otherwise.

How many cookies does this recipe make?

This ultimately depends on what size cookie scoop you use. I have found that I can get anywhere between 26-30 cookies from one batch.

How do I store Raspberry White Chocolate Cookies?

Store your cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-5 days.
Keep them longer by freezing for up to 2-3 months.
Thaw at room temp before serving. Freezing the cookies may slightly change the texture, but they’ll still be delish!

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (SEE RECIPE CARD BELOW FOR THE FULL RECIPE)

  • salted butter – forgot to take out your butter to soften it to room temperature? See my post on How to Soften Butter Fast.
  • granulated sugar and light brown sugar – you could use all white sugar but I found adding the light brown sugar made these cookies softer.
  • large egg – if you have time, allow the egg to come to room temperature, this allows it to mix into the batter easier.
  • almond extract- you could use vanilla extract in its place, but I taste tested it both ways and my taste testers overwhelmingly loved the almond the most.
  • all-purpose flour – do not measure flour directly from the flour bag or you will end up with way too much flour in your cookies (which will make them dry) since it ends up getting compacted in your measuring cup. Pour some flour into a bowl and stir it up with a fork. Then dip in your measuring cup and scoop up some flour (do not pack or force it in) then take the flat side of a butter knife and scoop off the excess. This will get you the most accurate measurement if you do not have a kitchen scale.
  • white chocolate chips – these could be swapped for chopped white baking chocolate or white chocolate chunks if needed.
  • frozen raspberries – see my FAQ’s above on why it must be frozen raspberries.

HOW TO MAKE RASPBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE COOKIES

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer, cream the butter with the white and brown sugar until fully combined and fluffy.

Next, add in the egg and almond extract and mix until combined. Slowly add in the flour (a little at a time) until a smooth dough forms. Do not over mix or this can make your cookies tough.

Add in the white chocolate chips and mix well. Gently and carefully fold in the frozen raspberries. I do not recommend using a hand or stand mixer.

Using a 1 ½ Tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the cookie dough into balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. You want about 1 ½ inches between each cookie and the sides of the pan. 

Optional- you can add extra white chocolate chips to the tops of the cookie dough balls just to make them look pretty, like I did. But this is NOT necessary if you don’t want to. Bake only one baking sheet at a time for 14-17 minutes or until just golden brown on the edges. Baking one sheet at a time results in more evenly baked cookies.
