These are the BEST raspberry white chocolate chip cookies! They're buttery, chewy, and loaded with freeze dried raspberries and white chocolate chips. There's also no chilling time required, just mix, bake, and enjoy!
This is hands down the BEST raspberry white chocolate chip cookie recipe. They’re so buttery and chewy with raspberries and white chocolate throughout. By using freeze dried raspberries instead of fresh raspberries, the cookies keep their chewy texture rather than getting soggy. This recipe also requires zero chilling time, so you can just mix, bake, and enjoy!
This cookie recipe is truly one of my absolute favorites! They have a light crunch from the golden crisp edges while the centers are perfectly chewy. The flavors of these cookies are spot on - delicious melt-in-your-mouth white chocolate is met with the sweet and slightly tangy taste of ripe raspberries.
These cookies are also SO easy to make. The cookie dough is mixed just like any other, but does not require any refrigeration. This means you can have a fresh batch of raspberry white chocolate chip cookies baked and ready to be enjoyed in under 30 minutes!

How to Make White Chocolate Raspberry Cookie Recipe
- Place the melted butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and whisk together until a paste-like consistency.
- Add the egg and vanilla extract and whisk until smooth.
- Use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt into the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix or gluten will develop and the cookies will be tough.
- Fold in the white chocolate chips and freeze dried raspberries.
- Drop the cookies on a parchment paper lined baking sheet using a cookie scoop. Allow enough space between each cookie for spreading.
- Bake until the cookies are golden brown with firm edges and slightly soft centers.
- Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack. While the cookies are still warm, top with more white chocolate chips and crushed freeze dried raspberries.
Tips For Making the Best Raspberry White Chocolate Cookies
Properly measure the flour: One of the main reasons why most dessert recipes fail is because the flour was not properly measured. If there’s too much flour, the cookies will turn out dry, hard, and will not spread properly. Too little flour will result in flat cookies that spread out too much. The most accurate way to measure flour is to use a food scale.
White chocolate: When it comes to desserts, and especially cookies, it is important to use high quality chocolate for the best results. In this recipe I like to use a combination of regular sized and mini white chocolate chips so that every bite is filled with white chocolatey goodness!
Make ahead: The cookies can be shaped and frozen unbaked. Freeze on the baking sheet until solid, then store in a freezer bag. Bake directly from frozen adding 2-3 minutes to the total baking time.
Storage: Baked cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Raspberry White Chocolate Chip Cookie Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! These cookies hold up very well in the freezer and can be baked straight from frozen. To freeze cookie dough, first scoop the dough and place it on a parchment lined baking sheet or plate. Allow the cookie dough balls to chill in the refrigerator for an hour to firm up. Then, transfer the cookie dough balls into a freezer-safe ziplock back and freeze for up to 3 months.
To bake, follow the same instructions but add on a minute or two to ensure the cookies bake all the way through.
Once baked, store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 5-7 days.
The main reason chocolate chip cookies are hard is because there is too much flour in the dough. Another reason may be that the cookies are overbaked.
