If you’re looking for a unique cookie made with raspberries, try these Raspberry Cookies! Everyone in our house loved these seasonal fresh raspberry cookies. They’re the perfect treat for a special occasion, or when you just need a little something sweet.

These raspberry cookies are large and soft, with plenty of raspberries and white chocolate chips. And if that weren’t enough to tempt you, they’re ALSO topped with streusel. You know streusel makes everything better.

Raspberries for cookies

Can I add more berries than called for in the recipe?? You CAN but should you? I think the ratio of fruit to cookie is just about perfect in this recipe. If you were to add more raspberries you might have a cookie that has too much fruit and falls apart when you try to pick it up.

With the number of raspberries called for, you have a cookie that holds together but still has the soft moisture of fresh fruit in cookies. And you get just enough bites with raspberry in them to satisfy.

I know a lot of people thought my Rhubarb Cookies needed more rhubarb in them, but again more fruit means a softer cookie that falls apart when you pick it. You can add more fruit to either cookie recipe, but it’s a fine line between extra fruit and too soft from the fruit.

Looking for another way to use raspberries?? What about these Raspberry and White Chocolate Blondies from Entirely Elizabeth?

Do I use Fresh Or Frozen Raspberries for this recipe?

YES! You need fresh raspberries. And then, lightly freeze them so you can add them to the dough without making them mush. Lightly freezing them means they hold together a little bit better, but they’re not completely frozen solid. Perfect for mixing into cookies.

They only need to be lightly frozen, so put them on a baking sheet and pop them in the freezer for 20-30 minutes. That’s about the time it will take to gather everything and make the streusel and cookie dough.

Are these a Dupe For Subway Raspberry Cookies?

Will they fill the void if you’re jonesing for a Subway cookie? YES! But in my opinion, they’re not a dupe for the Subway Raspberry Cookies, and they’re better! The fresh raspberries in these homemade cookies are so much better than Subway. And to me, the Subway cookies just taste factory-made.
