How To Make White Chocolate Blueberry Cookies
Let’s prep. Preheat your oven to 325°F. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper (or spray with nonstick cooking spray) and set aside.
1. Get mixing. Use a stand mixer (or a hand mixer and a large bowl with high sides) to mix the softened butter and granulated sugar until smooth. Use a flat beater attachment for the easiest way to get that pale and creamy consistency.
2. Add the egg and vanilla. Beat until fully incorporated. You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl as you go to make sure everything gets properly mixed.
3. Sift in the dry ingredients. Add the flour and baking soda. Beat just until the dough has formed, careful not to overmix so you don’t end up with tough cookies.
4. Now for the stars of the recipe. Gently stir in the white chocolate chips and fresh blueberries.
5. Scoop and bake. Use a cookie scoop to scoop even portions of the cookie dough. Roll roughly into balls and place the cookie dough on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
6. Cool and indulge. Transfer the Blueberry Cookies onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve with a glass of milk, lemonade, or coffee and enjoy!
Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?
Want to whip up a batch of these cookies outside of blueberry season? You’re in luck, because you can use frozen blueberries if fresh ones are not available. Of course fresh blueberries are best when you can get them. The trick to the frozen blueberries is to keep them frozen. Do not let them thaw out and just keep in mind they may cause some purple streaks throughout the cookies (but it does look pretty!). You can also use dried blueberries the same way you would use dried cranberries in baking.
Storing White Chocolate Blueberry Cookies
Leftover Blueberry Cookies can be stored in an airtight container on your kitchen counter at room temperature for up to 3 days. This ensures they stay oh so soft and chewy! You can also freeze these cookies after baking to keep them fresh for even longer. Store in a freezer friendly, airtight container for up to 3 months. Just defrost at room temperature before serving.
Ingredients Notes for White Chocolate Blueberry Cookies
Butter – I used salted butter for these cookies. However, unsalted butter. If using unsalted butter can be substituted. If you go this route add 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the cookie dough mixture when you add the flour.
Sugar – Granulated sugar can be substituted for brown sugar, or a mix of half granulated/half brown sugar. The brown sugar will deepen the color of the cookies so don’t be alarmed when they turn a more golden, caramel color.
Vanilla Extract – You can substitute for vanilla essence, however using pure vanilla extract gives a better flavor to the cookies.
White Chocolate Chips – You can use chunks of white chocolate if you already have that on hand.
