White chocolate chips, raspberries and blueberries make these Red White and Blueberry Cookies a fun, patriotic treat for the 4th of July.
Happy 4th of July! If you have some time today, I recommend stirring up a batch of these Red White and Blue cookies to celebrate. This weekend I made a batch of my favorite chocolate chip cookies and instead of using traditional chocolate chips, I decided to be a bit festive and throw in some white chocolate chips and dried raspberries and blueberries I had on hand.
(In case you’re wondering, I used Trader Joe’s freeze dried raspberries and blueberries. Some things just jump into your cart don’t they? I may have another variation that uses raspberries which was my original intent.) It’s a bit late to share a 4th of July recipe with you, but after they turned out so cute, I couldn’t not share. They taste great too – the summery version of my soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful day relaxing with your family and taking and extra moment to appreciate the freedoms we enjoy. Sometimes I get anxious about the state of affairs in our country and forget to be thankful for all the freedoms we do have right now. I don’t want to forget that!
- 3 sticks butter, softened (1 and ½ cups)
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 4 cups all purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 and ½ cups white chocolate chips
- ¾ cup dried raspberries
- ¾ cup dried blueberries
- Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture.
- Stir until combined. Stir in white chocolate chips. Carefully stir in the dried raspberries and blueberries Form into balls about an inch or slightly more in diameter.
- Chill for at least 2 hrs or a couple days if you don't want to eat them right away.
- Preheat oven to 350 and grease cookie sheet. Bake for 8-11 minutes until edges are lightly brown. Do not over-bake. The centers may still look doughy.
- To make the cookies a bit prettier, you may press in a few additional chocolate chips and dried raspberries and blueberries. Press them gently into cookies that came straight out of the oven. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then cool completely on wire rack.
