24 cookies


  • ½ of a 1.2- to 1.5-oz. pkg. freeze-dried raspberries

  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoon sugar

  • ½ cup butter, cut up

  • Pink or red food coloring (optional)


  1. Place raspberries in a small food processor or blender. Process to a fine powder. Place powder in a fine-mesh sieve over a small bowl. Use a spoon to press powder through sieve; discard seeds. You should have a scant 1/4 cup powder.

  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl combine flour and sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling. Transfer half of the mixture to a medium bowl. Add raspberry powder to half of the dough. If desired, add food coloring. Form dough portions into balls and gently knead until smooth. Divide each dough portion in half. Gently knead a raspberry dough portion with plain dough portion to marble. Repeat with remaining two portions.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll each dough piece to 1/4 inch thick. Using 2- to 2 1/2-inch cutters, cut dough into desired shapes. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

  4. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until bottoms just start to brown and cookies are set. Remove; cool on a wire rack.
