Thick, chewy and perfectly soft these Raspberry White Chocolate Cookies are the perfect weekend baked treat or holiday cookie recipe. No chilling required and ready in under 30 minutes!
With Fall here, and the cool weather arriving I am finally ready to turn my oven back on and do some baking. These Raspberry White Chocolate Cookies are big and thick and are the perfect bakery style cookie. The fresh raspberries add the perfect touch of sweetness and tartness and complement the white chocolate chips beautifully.
These raspberry cookies are a holiday baking favorite, and always a hit at Christmas parties or for Valentine's Day. My son especially loves these cookies, as he is not a huge fan of dark chocolate (fingers crossed he has a change of heart someday). These cookies are perfect for the novice baker and require no chilling, prior baking experience and are ready in under 30 minutes.
- Raspberries: Fresh, frozen or freeze dried raspberries can be used for these cookies. Personally, I like using fresh raspberries because I think the flavor comes through stronger.
- White Chocolate Chips: Alternatively, you could use a bar of white chocolate and cut it into chunks, use mini white chocolate chips or mix it up and use a dark chocolate instead.

Prepare the Dry Ingredients: Add all the dry ingredients to a large prep bowl and stir to combine. Set aside, we will come back it it.
Combine the Dough
In a separate prep bowl, add the sugars and butter and use a hand or stand mixer to combine for 1-2 minutes. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and continue to beat for an additional minute. Once combined stir in the dry ingredients until just combined. Finally, gently stir in the roughly chopped raspberries and white chocolate chips.
Baking the Cookies
Scoop the dough into large 1 ½ inch balls. I like mine on the large side to make them fit a bakery style cookie. Place each rolled cookie dough on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Once all the dough has been rolled, bake the white chocolate cookies on the center rack of a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes until cookies are golden.
Once the cookies are finished baking, remove from the cookie tray and let cool on a cooling rack. Enjoy warm with milk or store leftovers. Enjoy!
Storing Leftover Cookies
Store leftover raspberry cookies in an airtight container or bag at room temperature for up to 1 week. For that fresh out of the oven cookie feel, warm your cookie in the microwave for 5-10 seconds.
Yes, this cookie dough can be frozen. Follow all the recipe steps up until baking the cookies. Scoop the cookie dough into balls and place in a freezer bag or container and store flat for up to 3 months. When ready to bake follow baking instructions for prep and temperature, but add an additional 2-4 minutes to the total bake time.
You can prep the raspberry white chocolate chip cookie dough ahead of time and store it in the fridge covered for up to 24 hours. It is best to scoop the dough in balls and store on a cookie sheet, but you can store the combined dough covered in a prep bowl. If covered in a prep bowl remove from the fridge and let soften up a bit so the cookie dough is easier to scoop.
This recipe yields 12 large bakery style cookies. If you are wanting a smaller 1 inch round cookie then you absolutely can make your cookies on the smaller side. Just be sure to watch them and adjust the bake time.
Don't Over-Stir: When stirring in the raspberries into the dough be careful not over-stir them or the red color will run throughout the dough. The raspberries will also get mushed and you will not get those big bites of raspberries.
Don't Over-Bake: When baking these cookies it is important not to over-bake them (I mean isn't it always). The cookies will be golden on top and crisp on the bottom, while the middle will be soft and chewy. That my friends, is the perfect cookie.
The Perfect Butter: For the cookies I find the perfect butter is soft and just beginning to melt. I achieve this by microwaving it for 15-30 seconds. You do not want the butter to be completely melted as I find the cookies are and thick when using melted butter.

I made them and they came out thick and not very sweet, what did I do wrong? Can I add more of something to the dough to fix them? Please help
These cookies are meant to be on the thicker side. You can flatten the ball of cookie dough out some next time to help them spread and not be as thick it you wish. Also the sweetness is more subtle because of the tart raspberries and white chocolate combination.
Step 2 states to add dry ingredients in a separate bowl, however, the next step is to mix the sugars with butter. Sugar is a dry ingredient, so this was frustrating and resulted in wasted ingredients as I had to restart. Keep in mind if you make these.
Sorry for the confusion! I can go back in and clarify, thanks for bringing it to my attention 🙂
Hi! Is the dough stuff enough to use a cookie cutter? Wanting to make love hearts for Valentine’s Day!
I have personally never tried to make them into hearts. The dough is soft and expands a lot, so I'm not sure the heart shape would work too well.
Hi! Can you freeze them?
If freezing the dough I recommend using freeze dried raspberries. Enjoy!
My friend shared this recipe with me yesterday, I made them this morning, my family really enjoyed them , easy to make too. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe with us!
So happy you liked the cookies!
the recipe's good, but my cookies turned red from the raspberries😭👍
I am glad you liked them! It is hard to keep them from turning a bit red since the juice will run. If the color bothers you, you can use freeze dried raspberries next time. Glad you still enjoyed them despite the color 🙂
Can you double this recipe?
Yep you can 🙂
I made those cookie today I cooled the rack and when they were completely cooled I packed on little thank you individually but after sometime they have gone so soft. Why it’s happened please advise me how can I fix it. Thank you
If they were still very soft once cooled, then they may have needed longer in the oven. Try baking them a few extra minutes next time 🙂
So delicious! Thank you
Thanks Anne, glad you liked the cookies 🙂
