Fresh berries just remind us of the summer, when the sun is shining, kids are playing in the sprinklers, laughing and chasing each other. When I hear the word ‘Berries’, this is what comes to mind. These raspberry chocolate chip cookies are just a definition of the word summer. Buttery cookies, stuffed to the brim with chocolate chips and bursting with fruity pops of raspberry! Doesn’t that sound delicious???
How do these cookies taste? Are they chewy or thick and soft batch?
These cookies are soft batch and thick. If you prefer to make these chewy, reduce the flour by half a cup, but be prepared for them to spread while they cook. Otherwise they still taste amazing!
If I don’t have time, do I need to chill the dough?
If you don’t have time, there’s no need to chill the dough, but it will alter the flavour of the cookies. Chilling time allows the flavours to deepen, but also prevent spreading while baking. For chewier cookies, no need to chill.
Can I use other berries?
Yes of course! Strawberries are very popular substitutes in this recipe.
