Ingredients for Fresh Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookies
For this recipe, I am using semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you can use other chocolate chips. The kind of chocolate chips you’ll use will not affect the end product except in terms of sweetness and flavor. Also, it is highly recommendable to freeze your raspberries. Frozen raspberries yield better results as it produces prettier cookies. Both fresh and frozen raspberries would taste good. However, if you want nice-looking cookies, freeze your berries first.
How To Make Fresh Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Preheat oven to 400
- Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium size bowl.
- Heat berries in the microwave at 30 second intervals stirring after each interval for 1-2 minutes until berries are soft and liquifying. Or place in a small pan on the stove and heat over medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
- Cream together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in raspberries at high speed. The high speed is necessary to incorporate the berries with the butter mixture, if it is separating increase the speed.
- Mix in the dry ingredients.
- Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Shape into 12 balls or scoop with a dough scoop and place on a baking sheet, gently press to flatten about halfway. Bake for 10-13 minutes until slightly golden brown around the edges. Remove from the oven and cool on the baking sheet for 5-10 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.
PRO Tips and Tricks
1. The optimum butter for cookies is soft and beginning to melt. Start with room temperature butter to yield better cookies. It’s best to leave the butter out on the counter until it reaches room temperature. If you’re in a hurry, you can soften it in the microwave. Microwave it for 15-30 seconds. If the butter is totally melted, the cookies are going to be too thick.
2. If you are a busy person and can’t prep and bake on the same day, what you can do is place your cookie dough in the freezer. The raspberry chocolate chip cookie dough can be prepared and refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Placed the cookie dough in a prep bowl. When ready to bake, remove the covered prep bowl from the fridge and let it soften slightly so cookie dough is easier to scoop.
