Subway is the only chain restaurant that we have in the small town that I live in.  I have to admit that I don’t go in there much but when I do, you can bet that I will be adding a Raspberry Cheesecake Cookie {or three} to my order.  Subway cookies in general are good but there is something extra special about their Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies.  So I am super excited to share with you my Copycat recipe for Subway’s Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies because being able to make them at home is glorious.  Keep scrolling to see how easy they are to make.

Raspberries are hands down my favorite fruit!  That isn’t to say that I don’t like other fruit but raspberries definitely win with me.

I have tried fresh and frozen raspberries in baking but knew they wouldn’t work great in this recipe.  Then I discovered freeze dried raspberries.

What a fabulous snack but more importantly…what a fabulous item to use in a baked item that you don’t want extra moisture in.  If you haven’t tried them then you are in for a real treat!

How to Make Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies with a Cake Mix

The very best part of these cookies {aside from the fact that they taste like Subways Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies and contain freeze dried raspberries} is that they start with a cake mix.  

To make the dough combine the dry cake mix {it always helps to whisk the dry mix to remove lumps}, brick of cream cheese, stick of butter, egg and vanilla.

I really like to use a hand held mixer for the job but you can totally do this by hand.

Mix until everything comes together and you have a thick and slightly sticky cookie dough.

To the cookie dough add white chocolate chips and freeze dried raspberries.  Stir them into the cookie dough gently by hand.

There isn’t a way to not break up the raspberries a little bit but we don’t want to break them into bits, so do it gently until everything is equally combined.

You can see that the raspberries have broken up slightly and that is totally fine, not to worry.

Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop mounds of cookie dough onto a silicone mat {or parchment lined} cookie sheet.

Before you bake them, use your finger tips to press the tops down slightly.  Because this cookie dough won’t spread much we want to be sure to help it out some.  

You can also use the palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass to do this step.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 9-11 minutes or until the edges and bottom of the cookies just start to turn brown.  It is important to not over bake them.

Once you remove them from the oven, let them cool on the cookie sheet for at least 10 minutes.  Then you can move them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Why Freeze Dried Raspberries Work Awesome in this Recipe

  • Freeze dried raspberries give you a ton of raspberry flavor because they are real raspberries.
  • Because they are freeze dried they don’t have extra moisture that can be hard to balance in a cookie dough.
  • They break up in the dough and give little pockets of raspberry goodness.
  • The combination of raspberry and white chocolate give an amazing flavor.

My family says that they are better than the ones you buy at the restaurant but you will have to see for yourself.

Make a batch and I can at least tell you that you will not be disappointed.
