How To Make Blueberry Cookies
1. Cream the butter: Add the softened butter and granulated sugar to a large bowl. Beat them together with a hand-held mixer or stand mixer until light and fluffy.
2. Add the blueberries: Microwave the frozen blueberries for 40-50 seconds or until they’re softened. Let the blueberries cool slightly, then add them to the butter mixture and blend them with the electric mixer. You can also add everything to a food blender and blend until combined.
3. Add dry ingredients: Add the flour and baking powder to the bowl. Fold until they just combine with the blueberry mixture. Gently mix the chopped white chocolate into the dough.
4. Chill the dough: Cover the mixing bowl lightly with plastic wrap and place the cookie dough in the freezer for 30 minutes to chill.
5. Shape the dough: Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop and roll the cookie dough into 12 balls. Place the cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
6. Bake: Put the cookies in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set. Cool the baked cookies on a wire rack completely before serving. Enjoy!
