How To Make Raspberry Cookies

Add the rolled oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into another bowl and whisk to combine. Put in the freeze-dried raspberries and white chocolate chips and use a spatula to gently mix in. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Use a measuring spoon to portion the dough into 2 tbsp-sized balls and roll them up before arranging them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put the sheets into the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
Step 2. Set the oven to 375 degrees. Place the cookies into the oven for 12-5 minutes to bake until they just turn light brown and are still a bit soft in the center but set. If you what the cookies to be more eye-popping and add more flavor, you can put a few white chocolate chips and freeze-dried raspberries on top of the cookies while they are still hot. Put them back in the oven for an additional minute until the toppings are baked. Serve and enjoy!
Can I Use Fresh Or Frozen Raspberries Instead Of Freeze-Dried?
Unfortunately, no, you can not use fresh or frozen raspberries because they contain too much moisture for this recipe. If you can’t find freeze-dried raspberries, you can try freeze-dried strawberries, but of course, the raspberries would work the best.
Can I Make These Raspberry Cookies Ahead Of Time?
Yes, you can make these cookies ahead of time if you like. Just prepare the dough and wrap it up really well and store it in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for 2 months. When you are ready to use it, you can use the dough right out of the fridge, but if placed in the freezer, you will need to thaw the dough in the fridge overnight before baking.
Tips & Tricks
- Put the toppings on the cookies AFTER you baked them for 15 minutes or they will burn in the oven.
- You may find it a little hard to find freeze-dried raspberries, but you can buy them at stores like Whole Foods and Amazon.
- If you only have white sugar or only have brown sugar, you can use 1 1/2 cups of either sugar instead of using both. It will alter the texture, but it will work.
- If you don’t have rolled oats, you can use instant or quick oats
- If you don’t have white chocolate chips, you can use other forms of it. You can also use milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate as a substitute.
