I’m going to share a controversial opinion here…Chocolate chip cookies are not my favorite. Don’t get me wrong, chocolate is always the answer, but the cookie just seems so plain. Because of that opinion, I am always on a quest to improve the chocolate chip cookie. With this recipe, I hit the jackpot! Dark chocolate and raspberry are a perfect match. Run to your kitchen and make these ASAP!
Let’s Make Chocolate Chip Cookies

- Baking scale
- Measuring spoons
- Small Mixing Bowl
- Large mixing bowl (microwave safe)
- Rubber spatula
- Cookie dough scoop
- Parchment lined cookie sheets
- Wire cooling rack
- 250g all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 115g melted unsalted butter (slightly cooled)
- 100g dark brown sugar
- 50g granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 20g freeze-dried raspberries
- 200g dark chocolate chips (or as many chocolate chips as you want!)
Use the scale to weigh out flour into small mixing bowl and add the baking powder, baking soda, cornstarch, and sea salt. Whisk together until blended and set aside.
Melt butter in large, microwave safe, mixing bowl. Let slightly cool. Whisk in the sugars until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in thirds and combine until a dough forms. Fold in the freeze-dried raspberries and chocolate chips.
Form the dough into 12 equal sized balls using your hands or a cookie scoop. Place balls on parchment lined cookie sheets and refrigerate for at least one hour (up to 12 hours).
Preheat oven to 400F. Bake 4-6 chilled cookies at a time for 9-11 minutes until lightly golden. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to wire cooling rack.
- Cookie dough balls can be placed in air tight container in freezer for several months and pulled out for later baking. Let sit at room temperature while oven preheating.
- Freeze-dried fruit is sold at various stores (I get mine at Target) and creates much less moisture in the cookie dough.
