One of my favorite things about Oregon are the blueberries. Another favorite is my friend Shonda. She made these delicious cookies and shared them with my family today. They got rave reviews and my husband said they're even better than the Mrs. Fields cookies you can get at the mall. So how do you like that?!
blueberry white chocolate oatmeal cookies (my friend Shonda found the recipe at Picky Palate)
2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups quick oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups dried blueberries (you can get them at Costco or if you're an Oregonian you can pick them yourself and dry your own!)
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until well combined.
Place flour, oatmeal, baking soda and salt into a large bowl; mix to combine. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients along with the blueberries and white chocolate. Mix until just combined.
Use a medium cookie scoop and scoop dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are just turning golden brown.
Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
Makes 4 dozen normal sized cookies.
