Triple Berry Cookies

Summer is here, and I’m ready to start baking with all of the summer berries. Pies, cakes, tarts – you name it. But one thing I really wanted to dream up this year is a cookie that would feature all of my favorite berries: raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries- a Triple Berry Cookie!

These Triple Berry Cookies are sweet and soft, with all the bold berry flavors of summer that you love. Freeze dried raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries are finely crushed and added into the dough. A small scoop of each dough is combined to make the coolest design, and each cookie is rolled in sugar to give it that crackled, crunchy top. It’s truly the best.

Now let’s get to baking! Start off by blending together the butter and sugar. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and then add in the eggs, one at a time. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the flour and salt, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Divide dough evenly into thirds, using a scale if possible. Add finely crushed and sifted freeze dried raspberries to the first dough along with a drop of red food coloring and mix just until combined. Wrap the dough up in plastic wrap and place it in the fridge to chill.

Wipe out your mixing bowl and repeat this process with the second dough by adding finely crushed and sifted freeze dried strawberries and a drop of pink food coloring. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill.

Wipe out your bowl again and add in the third dough along with finely crushed and sifted freeze dried blueberries and a drop of blue food coloring. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill.

Now it’s time to scoop! I recommend using a 1 tbsp scoop because it gives you just the right amount of each dough. If you don’t have one, you can use a 1 tbsp measuring spoon.

Start off by taking the raspberry dough out of the fridge and scooping it into balls. Place each cookie dough ball closely together on a cookie sheet. Repeat this same process with the other two doughs, being sure to clean the scoop in between each flavor. Chill the doughs for an additional 10-15 minutes until they are slightly firm to the touch.

Next you’ll get started on rolling. Take one dough ball of each flavor and gently press them together, using your hands to carefully roll them into one larger dough ball.

Then gently roll each dough ball in sugar and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet so that the side with the seam is facing up and you can see all three colors. Repeat this process until all cookies have been formed.

Pop them into the oven for 11-14 minutes until they are somewhat crackly on top. Let them sit on the sheet for about 10 minutes once you pull them out of the oven.

Now what flavor will you take a bite of first? Or will you bite into two flavors at once? Either way, you’ve got a delicious summer treat to enjoy!
