Ingredients & Substitutions
Room temperature butter yields the best results. In a time pinch, place chilled butter in the microwave for 11 seconds. This allows the butter to slightly soften without melting. I have had success substituting coconut oil for butter in cookie recipes before, but haven’t tried it with this one.
Both granulated sugar and light brown sugar are used to achieve the right amount of sweetness. Tightly pack brown sugar. Coconut sugar can replace brown sugar, but the cookies will be slightly darker in color.
Every cookie needs a little vanilla extract!
One egg is needed to help these raspberry white chocolate chip cookies rise. Do not use an egg replacer or flax egg.
Gluten free 1 to 1 flour is the perfect replacement for all purpose flour. I highly recommend King Arthur Flour. If not gluten free, all purpose flour works well. For this white chocolate and raspberry cookie recipe, both flours work well.
The pinch of sea salt adds the right amount of salty flavor. I recommend a high quality sea salt for best results.
Baking soda is the leavening agent used to make these cookies rise!
For the white chocolate chips, I used Dee Best Vegan white chocolate chips. Use regular white chocolate chips if desired!
Use quartered raspberries. Chop them and discard any excess juice that has leaked out. Fresh raspberry white chocolate cookies are to die for!
How to Make
First, cream butter, white sugar and brown sugar together until combined.
Then, add in egg and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
Mix in flour, sea salt and baking soda. Stir until a thick cookie dough is formed.
Fold in white chocolate chips.
Then, gently fold in chopped raspberries. Place bowl in fridge for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Use ice cream scoop to scoop 1 inch balls of dough onto pan.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until middles of cookies are just set.
Finally, remove from oven. Cool on pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
