I thought I would post a blueberry recipe today since I just found a link to my blog from WildBlueberryHealthBlog.com today. They named me their #5 food blogger for us foodies infatuated with Maine!
White Chocolate Chip Blueberry Oatmeal Cookie
Makes about 36
1 stick butter, softened
¾ cups sour cream
1/3 cup sugar
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup medium cut oats (not quick cooking)
2 cups flour
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup fresh Maine blueberries (if using frozen, allow to thaw and drain completely; or you can use non-Maine blueberries if you have to)
Preheat oven to 350
In mixing bowl combine butter, sour cream and sugars in mix on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs and mix until smooth.
Add baking soda, baking powder, vanilla and salt to mixture and combine.
Fold in oats, then flour and mix until just blended. Fold in white chocolate chips.
Drop onto parchment or silicone lined baking sheet by rounded tablespoons about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes until puffed and barely dry to the touch. Try not to allow the cookie to brown.
These are actually soft enough to make in small muffin tins.
There’s a cute story behind these cookies too, I posted them a while back but since a friend of mine mentioned that today is National Cookie Day, here it is again:
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
1/3 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 2/3 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cups macadamia nuts (or pecans)
Combine flour., baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside.
In mixing bowl, combine sugars, vanilla and butter and mix on medium speed until blended. Add egg and continue until smooth. Fold in coconut, flour mixture, then nuts, white chocolate chips. Mix thoroughly.
Scoop out onto parchment or silicone lined baking sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes until just lightly browned. For chewy cookies, bake 9-10 minutes, for crispy cookies bake 12-13 minutes.
