Last year I published these White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies during the Christmas season and you all loved them!

I am back this year, in full holiday spirit mode, bringing you a new batch of equally festive, delicious and fun cookies in the form of these White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies.

Christmas is the season that I allow myself to indulge in sweets as if they carry no calories.

You know what they say…’Tis the season to BRING ON THE SWEETS!

These fun white chocolate raspberry cookies are perfect as a little holiday baking fun, Christmas cookie exchange, gifts for the neighbors, after-dinner treats, or a fun festive snack to have around the house in December.

Our white chocolate raspberry cookies are also super easy to make, calls for pantry-friendly ingredients, uses only one bowl, no refrigerating of the dough, and are ready under 25 minutes!

Simple and straight-forward is our goal over here! (Without sacrificing taste, of course)

Ingredients

As promised, no obscure, hard-to-find-ingredients to make your cookie dreams come true!

Here’s what you will need to make white chocolate raspberry cookies:

  • White chocolate chips
  • Fresh raspberries – cut them into smaller pieces (see photograph below). Also, make sure to pat dry and remove ALL access water on it
  • Unsalted butter – salted works too but it’s always better to bake with unsalted so yo don’t add additional salt to your baked goods. Ideally use softened butter, not melted.
  • Granulated sugar
  • Egg
  • Vanilla extract – use pure vanilla extract for the best tasting cookies
  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking soda – used as the rising agent for these cookies
  • Salt

How to make White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies

White chocolate raspberry cookies are fun and simple to make, taking no more than 25 minutes!

Start by creaming butter and sugar together, then add the rest of the wet ingredients – egg and vanilla extract.

Next, comes the dry ingredients: four, baking soda, and salt.

Yes – all this happens in ONE BOWL. Whenever I can, I like to make my baking recipes in one bowl!

Because one bowl = easier and less cleanup! (Because who doesn’t want less cleanup, right…)

After cookie dough mixture is combined, fold in the white chocolate chips.

Once dough is ready, form it into small 1.5-inch balls. Then for each ball, make a few indention on the top of the dough balls and stick raspberries pieces into these indentions.

The reason why I suggest making the indentions is because raspberries don’t stick well and may drop when baking if it’s just laid on top of the dough balls.

I also didn’t love adding raspberries into the dough batter itself, because it will get squish when folded into the dough, and you no longer get plump pieces of raspberries in your cookies when they are baked.

So the indention technique is the easiest/most practical/most tasty/pretty-looking one in my opinion!

Forming a cookie dough and a handful of round cookie dough on cookie sheet

Place cookie dough balls on a cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart.

Then bake your white chocolate raspberry cookies!

To get soft white chocolate raspberry cookies, bake for 9-10 minutes (avoid over-baking!) and then remove promptly from oven and let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes.

Immediately after that, remove white chocolate raspberry cookies and place them on a cooling rack. Let it cool for about 10 minutes.

Tips and Tricks

A few things to keep in mind when making these raspberry white chocolate cookies:

  • Pat dry raspberry and remove all access water on it to avoid getting more extra moisture onto the cookies. The raspberry itself does have some moisture so we are trying to avoid making the cookies too wet.
  • Softened butter works the best for baking cookies. Let butter sit in room temperature for a few hours before baking. Butter that is completely melted will yield very flat cookies.
  • Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or baking mat for easier cleanup.
  • To get a soft cookie, do not over bake white chocolate raspberry cookies. Once cookies come out of the oven, let them sit on cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes, and then immediately remove and place them on the cooling rack. When white chocolate raspberry cookies first come out of the oven, they should still be pretty soft. That is why we are letting them sit on the cookie sheet for a few minutes to harden slightly. At the same time, we also want to make sure they don’t harden too much and remove them after 2-3 minutes to place on cooling rack.

Storage Instructions

Store white chocolate raspberry cookies in an airtight container in room temperature for up to a day. I typically prefer to store in the refrigerator after a day because raspberries may not keep well in room temperature after 24 hours or so.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I freeze the cookie dough?

Yes! Store and freeze cookie dough in an airtight container or bag. I would add raspberries to the dough balls when ready to bake. Let frozen cookie dough defrost 24 hours in refrigerator before baking.

How do I store these baked cookies?

Store cookies in an airtight container in room temperature for up to 3 days.

These White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies are soft, moist, buttery and crumbly!

They are best served fresh out of the oven with a warm cup of tea or milk. I typically opt for the tea, my husband opt for the milk. 😉

I love the combination of sweet and tart flavors in every single bite!

Happy Holidays, friends! Hope you get to have a little festive fun with these yummies!
