How to Make The Best Roll Out Raspberry Sugar Cookies

The Raspberry Sugar Cookie Recipe

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Grab a medium sized mixing bowl and mix together three cups of flour, two teaspoons of baking powder, and a half cup of powdered freeze-dried raspberries. Remember, when measuring flour, do the spoon & level method.

*What’s the spoon & level method? Simply use a spoon to spoon flour into your measuring cup. Once you have a mound at the top, take a knife and scrape it over the top of the measuring cup. Obviously don’t scrape the excess into your mixing bowl.

*I am using finely powdered freeze-dried raspberries. If you prefer, you can purchase whole freeze dried raspberries and pulverize them yourself to obtain a powder. Do keep in mind, using whole/sliced freeze dried raspberries will result in seeds being in the cookies.

Grab your stand mixer and attach the paddle attachment. In the stand mixer, add in one cup (or two sticks) of COLD salted butter. By cold, I mean refrigerated and not at room temperature.

You can chop the butter up into cubes before adding it into the stand if you want to speed up the process and reduce the chance of your mixer kicking the butter out onto the floor.

To the butter, cubed or not, add in one cup of granulated white sugar. Cream the butter and sugar together on medium speed. You will know it’s done when you can’t see any butter lumps.

Next up is adding one egg and up to one tablespoon of vanilla extract to the mixer. If you’re unsure on how much vanilla you like, a safe starting place is 1.5 teaspoons.

Mix the egg and extract in the stand mixer until the egg is just combined. We don’t want to introduce too much heat.

Lastly, spoon in some of the dry ingredients and mix until it’s not a powdery mess. Continue adding in the dry ingredients until it’s all been added.

The dough will pull away from the sides when it is ready. It will appear dry at first but once the freeze-dried raspberries soak in some of the liquid, it will become just-right. Keep mixing until it is formed into a ball.

Roll out the cookie dough on a floured surface to 3/8″ thick. I prefer a thicker cookie because buttercream frosting can be overpowering if the cookie is too thin.

I use this Joseph-Joseph rolling pin to ensure my cookies are even and 3/8″ thick. I highly recommend it! It’s one of my favorite kitchen tools.

Place no more than 6 cookies on a standard sized cookie sheet. I find this raspberry sugar cookie recipe to work wonders on this cookie sheet and a silicone mat.

No products found.

  • GREAT RESULTS: promotes even heat distribution for better baking
  • ECO-FRIENDLY: use in place of parchment paper or foil
  • DURABLE: nonstick and heat-resistant to 500F
  • DISHWASHER SAFE: for easy cleanup

I like to put this cookie sheet into the freezer for about five minutes before baking. If you don’t have any concerns over spread, you can skip this step.

Bake for 7-10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, or until the middle of the cookie doesn’t look wet. Sometimes it forms a bit of a bump on the top of the cookie which also means they are done.

I always err on underbaking than overbaking. The cookies will continue to cook a bit as they cool on the baking sheet. The egg & flour should be cooked enough for safe eating, assuming the cookies didn’t look wet in appearance anymore.

Allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for at least 5 minutes, then use a thin spatula to move them to a piece of parchment paper. Roll out the next set of 6 cookies and repeat this process until all the dough is used.

To take these soon-to-be buttercream cookies OUT OF THIS WORLD, put your just-baked-but-cooled cookies into an airtight container and then freeze them while you make the buttercream frosting.

Freezing the cookies for a bit seals in moisture so you have amazingly soft cookies that almost melt in your mouth. Just heavenly!

I learned this trick when making banana bread back in the day and it applies to these sugar cookies as well. Best hack ever.
