It’s summer. It’s hot. This recipe sounds fresh and cool.
Where I live, it’s blueberry season. Early, but you get some really nice ones these days. I happened upon this picture of lovely blueberry cookies on a Facebook post and could not resist. I am going to try these, have not yet. I clicked the link.
BUT, when I went to the website to see the recipe there, in the pictures the cookies are blue. I make an incredibly mean blueberry coffee cake and it does not come out blue. It is in the way you stir, gently so as not to crush the blueberries.
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegan butter, softened
1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
1/3 cup frozen – FRESH – blueberries (maybe a bit more than 1/3 cup fresh)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips or shavings
In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt – set aside
NOT — Thaw blueberries in microwave for about 1 minute until berries are soft and jam like – let cool
DO – Use fresh blueberries! The cookies will not be blue!
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy
NOT — Add in blueberries and mix on high until fully incorporated
DO NOT ADD THE BLUEBERRIES IN THIS STEP!!!
Fold in dry ingredients gradually
FOLD IN the blueberries, gently so as not to crush them!
Very carefully at this point, mix in the white chocolate or do it before you add the blueberries to be safe.
Chill dough in freezer for about 30 minutes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Shape into equal size balls and place on parchment paper lined baking sheet
Bake 10-12 minutes
Let cool, eat
