I love Christmas cookies! They’re so fun and yummy. 

Not as many people do it anymore, but I grew up with the tradition of getting all the women in the family together to make Christmas cookies. You know, spend all day making 7 or 8 different types of cookies to fill up the dessert trays for everyone to enjoy. 

Today, I’m sharing one of the cookie recipes we enjoy each year: White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies! The best way to describe these cookies is that they are the ideal combination of raspberry tartness and rich white chocolate – tart and sweet wins every time in my book!

Some of you may know this about me, and some may not: I LOVE fruity desserts. And chocolate. Put them together and…WOW, I’m in love!

This recipe is super easy to make, festive with red juicy raspberries, and PACKED with delicious raspberry flavor and chunks of white chocolate. If you’re a fan of white chocolate and fruity flavor, you’re going to LOVE these bakery-style cookies!

They’re seriously the perfect cookie for adding to holiday cookie tins as frugal gift ideas! These cookies are also festive enough to make for Valentine’s Day!

How To Make White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies

Step 1

Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl and set the flour mixture aside.

Step 2

Beat butter and sugars together in a large bowl until the mixture is pale and creamy.

Step 3

Add vanilla and almond extracts to the wet ingredients in the large bowl and beat until well combined.

Step 4

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the large mixing bowl of wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

Step 5

Now add the chopped white chocolate bars and white chocolate chips. Beat until evenly distributed in the dough.

NOTE: The amount you add is your personal preference. Add as much or as little as you choose.

Step 6

Place dough in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.

Step 7

When you are ready to start baking, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Take the dough out of the fridge.

Step 8

In a bowl, toss the frozen raspberries with 1 tbsp flour.

Step 9

Add the frozen raspberries to the chilled dough and stir.

Step 10

Line two baking trays or cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Use a large cookie scoop to portion out the chilled dough, then form it into dough balls. Place the cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 11

Flatten the cookie dough to 1/2″ thickness using the bottom of the spoon or bottom of a measuring cup.

Step 12

Bake for 12 minutes. Cookies should be set and lightly golden brown on the top.

Remove each cookie sheet from the oven, and place the cookies on a cooling rack to cool.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies Recipe Notes And Tips

  • Coating the frozen raspberries in flour before adding to dough and baking will keep the raspberries from sinking to the bottom of the baked item.
  • Use a serrated knife or grater to chop up the white chocolate bars. It is your choice how big or small you would like the white chocolate chunks.

Variations Of White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies To Try

  • Chocolate and raspberries are a perfect pairing so instead of the white chocolate try adding milk chocolate…..or even a combination of both. YUM!
  • Add finely chopped pecans or walnuts to add a yummy crunch to an already delicious bite.
  • Add a little zing by including a teaspoon of lemon zest in the dough before baking.
  • Try a couple different flavors by swapping out the raspberries for blueberries or blackberries.


If you have any questions about making these White Chocolate Raspberry cookies, check to see if your question is below. If you don’t see it, leave it in the comments so I can answer it!

Do these White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies need to be refrigerated?

They do not have to be kept in the fridge. If you store them in an air-tight container, they will keep for up to 1 week at room temperature.

Can the White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies be frozen?

Yes, they will freeze nicely for up to 3 months! Place the baked cookies in an airtight, freezer-safe container (like a freezer bag) and place a layer of waxed paper between each cookie to prevent them from sticking together.

Can I use freeze-dried raspberries instead of frozen raspberries?

Definitely! Frozen raspberries will contain more moisture than freeze-dried. So if you choose to use freeze-dried berries instead of frozen, just keep in mind that the cookies will have a little different texture…..both are delicious, though. 🙂
