HOW DO YOU MAKE RASPBERRY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES?
- Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- Cream butter and sugars; mix in eggs and vanilla.
- Add in flour mixture and chocolate chips.
- Gently fold in raspberries.
- Drop by rounded tablespoon on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake until golden brown.
CAN YOU USE FROZEN RASPBERRIES?
Yes. In fact, I froze the fresh raspberries before adding them to the dough. I found that using non-frozen berries resulted in the raspberries becoming completely smushed in the process of scooping. Of course, they still tasted delicious, but in terms of appearance, frozen berries yield a prettier cookie.
WHAT KIND OF CHOCOLATE CHIPS DO YOU USE?
I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you could also use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or even white chocolate chips if you prefer. The type of chocolate chips you use will not affect the end result except in terms of flavor.
WHAT IS THE TEXTURE OF THESE COOKIES?
I would describe the texture as soft and pillowy. If you prefer a chewier cookie, you can reduce the flour in the recipe by 1/2 cup.
DO THE RASPBERRIES MAKE THEM SOGGY?
I was worried about this, but no. The raspberries do NOT make the cookies soggy. In order to combat this potential issue, I added some extra flour to the recipe and was pleased with the overall texture and moisture level of the cookies.
HOW DO YOU STORE THEM?
These cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days. If you need to store them longer, you can store them in the refrigerator for up fo 5 days.
TIPS FOR SUCCESS:
- Start with room temperature butter. As hard as it is to be patient, leaving the butter out on the counter until it reaches room temperature is the best way to go. If you’re in a hurry, you can also soften it in the microwave on the correct setting or try this technique to soften butter quickly.
- Use frozen raspberries. I used fresh raspberries that I popped in the freezer overnight, but feel free to use pre-frozen raspberries in this recipe. Bonus: you can find them year round!
- Use a cookie scoop for evenly sized cookies.
