  • ½ cup 1 stick/113 grams unsalted butter
  • ½ cup 1 stick/113 grams shortening
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • zest from 2 lemons
  • cups white all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup freezer dried raspberries


  • Place butter in a microwave safe bowl, and melt, but not entirely, you should still see a few chunks.
  • Add almost melted butter to a large bowl with the shortening. Add white sugar and brown sugar and beat on medium-high speed until well combined. Stop once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula.
  • With the mixer on low-medium speed, beat in the egg, egg yolk, lemon zest, and lemon juice.
  • In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients: flour, salt, and baking powder, whisk until just combined.
  • Add dry ingredients to the mixer and beat on low just until combined. Do not over-mix.
  • Using a spatula, gently stir in the white chocolate chips and freezer dried raspberries.
  • Cover the bowl tightly and chill for 2 to 8 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Line a pan with parchment paper.
  • Scoop 1½ tablespoon of cookie dough, roll into a ball and slightly flatten it with your hand. Place cookie on the prepared sheet, 6-8 cookies per pan so they have plenty of room.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, making sure you don't over bake, better to under bake for a cookie-dough like center. Look for a golden hue on the sides of the cookies.
  • Optional: after removing the cookies from the oven, press a few chocolate chips onto the top.
  • Cool cookies for 5-7 minutes on the baking sheet after that transfer to a cooking rack.
  • Enjoy!
