I took a very informal Instagram poll and the survey said raspberry and chocolate wins over strawberry and chocolate. So…using that incredibly scientific data ? I started measuring and mixing these dreamy and delicious Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Change of Plans: Jam Style
My first thought was to go with a chocolate base but I quickly nixed the idea after I opened the jar of raspberry jam. Those beautiful raspberry seeds and colors would go unappreciated if I used a straight-up chocolate cookie.
So quickly switching gears, I grabbed my soft-baked sugar cookie recipe and used it as a starting point. Seeing as how the raspberry jam is already quite sweet, I went with only a cup of sugar for this recipe and I’m glad I didn’t use more as they turned out plenty sweet.
I first started this batch of cookies with half a cup of raspberry jam creamed into the butter and sugar but soon realized it wasn’t enough of that raspberry flavor I wanted. Another quarter cup of jam and a teaspoon of extract gave an extra burst of raspberry.
Enter the Chocolate
I’m all about that chip-to-bite ratio so a very healthy addition of 2 cups of mini chocolate chips and a splash of coarse sea salt rounded this cookie flavor profile out nicely. Dairy-free milk chocolate chips were what I used, but you can use whatever you prefer or have on hand! And don’t sweat it if you don’t have raspberry extract. Try something else like strawberry or almond or simply another teaspoon of vanilla.
Easy Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookies
I will shamefully admit I ingested at least 3 cookies’ worth of dough while scooping and then another 4 (at minimum) while photographing them. Seriously…all self-control went out the window. Think my New Year’s Resolutions went out the window too, but screw it! Sometimes a girl needs copious amounts of raspberry chocolate chip cookies. Can I get an amen?!
