These copycat Subway raspberry cheesecake cookies are sweet, decadent, and have a little bit of tartness from the raspberry. These cookies also have crisp edges and chewy centers.

I have a thing for cookies, especially these copycat Subway raspberry cheesecake cookies. These raspberry cheesecake cookies go in the something different category, but trust me, they are good! I love the raspberry flavor in these. White chocolate raspberry cookies definitely have a different flavor. Using a box of cheesecake Jell-o mix is my secret weapon!
If you can’t find freeze dried raspberries, freeze dried strawberries are also really good in these cookies. You can also substitute raspberry baking chips, if you’d like them to be exactly like the cookies at Subway. I haven’t been able to find any raspberry baking chips at my local grocery store, but Subway’s cookies use raspberry baking bits and not freeze dried raspberries.
For these cookies, you will need:
- All purpose flour: The base of the cookie dough.
- Brown sugar and white sugar: To sweeten the cookies.
- Boxed cheesecake mix (instant): You’ll want to get the instant kind, about 3.4 ounces.
- Baking powder and baking soda: To help the cookies rise.
- Salt: You’ll need just ½ a teaspoon.
- Butter: I recommend using unsalted butter.
- Vanilla extract: Pure vanilla extract is best for baking.
- Eggs: You’ll need two large eggs.
- White chocolate chips: Raspberry, cheesecake, and white chocolate chips are the ultimate combination!
- Freeze dried raspberries: If you can’t find freeze dried raspberries, raspberry baking chips or freeze dried strawberries also work well. I crumbled my freeze dried raspberries so they weren’t whole.
In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients: cheesecake mix, flour, brown sugar, white sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix well with a large spoon.
Next, mix in the softened butter, vanilla, and eggs. Mix with a hand mixer until everything is well combined. Dough may seem crumbly at first but this is normal.
Stir in your white chocolate chips with a large spoon or spatula.
Next, cover your mixing bowl with plastic wrap and chill your dough for at least 30 minutes, preferably an hour.
Add in your freeze-dried berries and mix them in. I like to wait to add them after the dough has been chilled so that they stay firm.
Use a large cookie scoop (about 2.5 tablespoon) to form your cookie dough balls. I recommend forming them into taller towers versus round balls. You can line a baking sheet with parchment paper (not wax paper) or grease a baking sheet well. Work the dough with your hands until the balls form.
Bake for 10 to 13 minutes at 350 degrees. Let the cookies rest for 10 minutes on the tray before transferring.
Tips for making these cookies
- Make sure that you are using boxed instant cheesecake pudding mix, the 3.4 ounce size box.
- For the best results, be sure to measure your flour correctly. Leveling it off with a butter knife helps a lot.
- Your dough may seem crumbly at first but it will come together as you roll the dough into balls with your hands.
- Be sure to chill your dough, if you don’t the cookies may become too flat.
- For the best cookies, make tall dough towers instead of round balls (see above).
- Let your cookies rest on the cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack. I let mine rest for at least ten minutes.
- You can use raspberry flavored baking chips, if desired. I could never find them so I used freeze dried fruit.
How to store these cookies
You can store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. They will be good for up to 5 days.
