Berry Wonderful Cookies

I always make cookies when I go visit my parents.  Well, mama had a recipe she wanted me to make (coming later) and I had a recipe I wanted to make. 

So, I made mama's cookies for a cookout ( and made some of the people there take some so that we woud "run out" of cookies) and made "my" cookies toward the end of the visit.  I found some dried blueberries on sale (something like 60% off) at Kroger one days...unfortunately, wasn't thinking and only bought one bag, they were still pricey! 

Anyway, after I found those, I saw this yummy looking recipe on Jenny's site.  Blueberry, oatmeal, and white chocolate...sounds delicious to me!  I couldn't find the caramel bits....but these cookies were SO sweet even without those.  If you have a sweet tooth, these are definitey cookies you'll like! 

Blueberry, White Chocolate, Oatmeal Cookies slightly modified from Jenny
2 sticks softened butter
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
1 Cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 Tablespoons pure vanilla
2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 Cups oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 Cups dried blueberries
1 Cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined.
2.  Place flour, oatmeal, and baking soda into a large bowl; mix to combine.  Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients along with the blueberries and white chocolate.  Mix until just combined.
3.  Use a medium cookie scoop and scoop dough onto a silpat, parchment lined baking sheet, or baking stone.  Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are just turning golden brown (mine cooked for more like 12-13 minutes).  Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.  Enjoy!

I really like dried cranberries and white chocolate cookies so I can imagine that the blueberries will make just as good cookies! x
