- Seedless Raspberry Jam – Seedless raspberry jam is a preference thing but use whatever you prefer. Raspberry is just the flavor Costco uses but feel free to use whatever fruit preserves you like.
- Almond Extract – This is optional and doesn’t have to be used, however it really elevates the flavor when added. If you don’t have or don’t want to use almond extract, you could double the vanilla extract in the recipe.

How To Make Raspberry Crumble Cookies
- To make these copycat Costco Raspberry Crumble Cookies, start by preheating your oven to 350°. In a large bowl, add the butter, both sugars, vanilla extract and almond extract and beat this mixture together with a hand or stand mixer for about 1-2 minutes. You can mix the dough by hand, it just may be a little difficult. Add in the flour and continue to combine. This mixture will be crumbly, that is fine, you don’t want to over mix the dough. You’ll know it’s combined when you can squeeze some in your hand and it sticks together. To keep it simple, the mixture makes both the base/crust and the topping.
- Using a jumbo muffin tin, spray or grease the wells and sprinkle some flour to the bottoms and sides. Then, to each muffin well, scoop about ¼ of the mixture to the bottoms.
- Press the mixture into the bottom of the cups and a little bit up the sides to form a small bowl shape. You can use the bottom of a glass or a spice jar to do this. You want to press it in, but don’t over compact it or it will be hard.
- Add about a ½ to a 1 tablespoon of the raspberry preserves to the middle of each tartlet.
- After adding the raspberry jam, sprinkle a large teaspoon of the crumble mixture on top.
- Place these in the oven and allow them to bake anywhere from 18 to 22 minutes, or until the tops turn a golden brown color. Take them out of the oven and allow them to sit in their pans until they are completely cool. You may need to take a butter knife to the side to help you get them out.
Recipe Tips and Advice
Storage – You can store these raspberry crumble cookies at room temperature in an airtight container for about a week or store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you freeze them, seperate each tartlet with some wax paper and store in a freezer bag.
Equipment – You’ll need a jumbo size muffin tin, a hand or stand mixer, baking spray or baking grease and a mixing bowl. If you choose to use baking spray, just know that the baking sprays with flour in them tend to make these cookies brown faster. If you don’t have a jumbo muffin tin you can also use a regular one, just follow these steps instead:
- Prepare the tin as normal and the dough as normal.
- Use two tablespoons of dough mixture, instead of a ¼ cup, and press it into the bottom of the tins as normal.
- Spoon 2 teaspoons of jam into the center of the wells and evenly seperate the remaining dough to sprinkle on the top.
Don’t Let The Cookie Crumble
Make sure the raspberry cookies cool completely before taking them out of the tins or else they will crumble. You can even make them the night before and let them sit overnight to ensure they set properly.
They are a pastry that resembles both a tartlet and a filled cookie! However, the biggest thing to remember is that they are delicious.
Yes, if you use non-dairy butter these could technically be considered vegan. When it comes to baking with different ingredients however I would always recommend testing before making a full batch.
Yes. However, depending on the consistency of the jam it may make your cookies turn out runny. So again, do a test batch if you want to try it out.

- Sprinkle each cookie with 1 heaping tablespoon of the remaining topping/crust mixture.
- Bake for 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned.
