🌟 WHY I LOVE BLUEBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE COOKIES
Using frozen blueberries in this blueberry white chocolate cookie recipe means that you can make these delicious soft and chewy cookies any time of the year – even when fresh blueberries are out of season!
These blueberry cookies are soft and chewy inside with pockets of juicy blueberry while slightly crispy on the outer edges. The chunks of white chocolate add an extra touch of sweetness and decadence.
The pretty light purple hue from the softened blueberries makes these cookies ideal for high teas, baby showers, bridal showers, or other special occasions.
🍽 KEY INGREDIENTS
Frozen blueberries – Fresh blueberries can be used. Frozen blueberries are great to use when fresh blueberries are out of season.
Vanilla extract – Any brand will do, as long as it is good quality.
White chocolate bar – White chocolate chips can be used instead.
Flour – Gluten-free flour, such as Bob’s Red Mill, can be used instead.
Add-Ins – White chocolate chips can be used instead of the white chocolate bar.
Sugar – I’ve used a combination of granulated sugar and light brown sugar for these cookies. You could use granulated sugar only, although I find that brown sugar creates delicious moisture for chewy cookie centers.
You’ll need a baking sheet, parchment paper, a medium saucepan, a large mixing bowl, an electric mixer, and a cookie scoop.
🔪 HOW TO MAKE
Mix, bake, and serve; that’s all that’s needed to make these scrumptious blueberry white chocolate cookies. Follow my easy step-by-step instructions and helpful cooking tips.
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
Heat the frozen blueberries in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until thawed and soft (about 3-5 minutes). Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Combine the granulated sugar, light brown sugar, and butter in a large mixing bowl until smooth and creamy. Add the cooled blueberries and beat on high until completely combined.
Stir in the flour, baking powder, and vanilla extract until combined.
Fold in the white chocolate chunks.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop the cookie dough onto the baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes and then allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes before eating.
💭 COOKING TIPS
- Allow the heated blueberries to cool before adding them to the rest of the cookie batter ingredients, or the heat from the softened blueberries can affect the outcome of the cookies.
- The softened blueberries with released juices are what give these cookies their purple hue. If you want a deeper color, consider adding some gel food coloring to the cookie batter.
- Using a cookie scoop to measure out the cookie batter will ensure uniform-sized cookies that will bake evenly.
- Allow the blueberry white chocolate cookies to cool for a few minutes on the baking tray before transferring them to a cooling rack to help prevent them from falling apart.
