11 December 2011

This is my first time participating in Beth Fish Reads' weekly meme and I'm so excited to share this one with you. I was in the mood to make something with blueberries for my husband's co-worker as a thank you to her and her husband for hosting a party and I stumbled upon this recipe at The Travel Bite. (I don't have a lot of cookbooks for some reason, so I normally just jump online.) My goal is to be much more creative in 2012 so being more in the kitchen are on the list, along with scrapbooking and journaling. I used to do all of this years ago, but work has pulled me away from most of that. So, these Blueberry & White Chocolate Chip Cookies looked like they might just do the job.

And. They. DID.

Oh, my goodness. They weren't overly sweet, they were just right! The punch of the blueberry and the sweetness of the white chocolate were a wonderful combination and the dough has an almost cake-like consistency. I can see why The Travel Bite writer wrote that she would eat these for breakfast also. YUM. (By the way, you MUST visit her site, it is delish).

The recipe came from The Travel Bite and the box to put the cookies in (along with ribbon and sticker) is Martha Stewart.

Maine Blueberry & White Chocolate Chip Cookies*

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup medium-cut oats (not quick cooking)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup fresh Maine blueberries (if frozen, allow to thaw and drain) I used regular blueberries
*I used regular blueberries; no Maine options here, but the regular ones worked just fine!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the butter, sour cream, and sugars and beat on medium speed until well blended. Add the egg and mix until smooth.
  3. Add baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and salt to the mixture and combine.
  4. Fold in the oats, then the flour and mix until just blended. Fold in the white chocolate chips and the blueberries.
  5. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto a parchment- or silicone-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until puffed and barely dry to the touch. Try not to allow the cookies to brown.
  6. Eat!

  1. Hmm, this looks nice! I've got some chocolate chips hanging about and I wanted to make some cookies with them... I think I've found just the recipe!

    I like that box... a lot. Now I don't think we have Martha Stewart here, but maybe I can find some other boxes. The thing with gifting cookies is that the container makes all the difference. And this looks so beautiful!

  2. I'm in love! :) These sound so good. I especially love that they are not overly sweet. And I too love the box. What a beautiful package and the perfect thank-you gift.

    Thanks for the link to a new-to-me blog.

  3. Oooh these look good. I was intrigued by the idea of blueberries in a cookie. I may just have to try these out for some holiday cookies. We seem to always make the same chocolate chip, peanut butter kiss, and oatmeal cookies. I too may decide to start something for the Weekend Cooking meme in the new year. I do a lot of cooking and never post anything on my blog on the weekend - so this might be fun!

  4. Oh my goodness do these look good. I'm going to give them a try.

  5. They look fantastic, and a great looking package. Nice combination of blueberries and white chocolate!

  6. I had a great Blueberry cookie recipe years ago and somewhere over the years it got missed place. I was just thinking the other day I need to find another one for this Christmas baking! Voila and there it is, Thanks! Thanks for stopping over at my post! Merry Christmas.

  7. P.S. Hope to see regularly at Beth's Weekend Cooking!

  8. Ooooh, these look so yummy! I make blueberry scones, but have never tried a blueberry cookie. Thanks for turning me on to The Travel Bite!

  9. Oh, these look delicious, and I can't imagine a better combination than blueberries and white chocolate! I need to make these for my Christmas baskets, and will be adding these to my Christmas baking schedule this year! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us today!

  10. These cookies look AMAZING! I love blueberries and white chocolate and have actually been working on developing my own recipe for blueberry white chocolate biscotti using dried blueberries. I may just make these in the meantime! Yummm!

  11. Holy cow these cookies look fabulous! Your post is just in time for my holiday cookie baking planned this upcoming weekend!

  12. Oh MY! These look delicious, and they remind me of the flavor profile of my fave cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory. I will most definitely give them a try!

  13. Oh, I love blueberries and the combination with white chocoalte must be very yummy. I will definitely try them. Thanks!

  14. These look and sound yummy Natalie. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Ummm YUM I totally want to try these!

  16. Yum! What a neat twist on a chocolate chip cookie!

    And, you're way too clever with that neat packaging (even if the idea/pattern is Martha, you get credit for executing it!)

  17. I've never seen blueberry cookies before! They look yummy. Have you visited bakingbites.com? I find all sorts of good recipes there.

  18. Thanks for posting this for the Virtual Cookie Exchange :). I plan to make these, I know the family we will be with on Christmas Eve will really enjoy them (and I can make them organic).

    Have a great day!

  19. Yum! Have never considered blueberry and chocolate before - definitely going to try over the holidays.
