I need to make cookies more often.
I’ve always loved oatmeal cookies, but the addition of fresh, plump blueberries and sweet, smooth white chocolate take these cookies to a whole new level of yum.
These cookies are crispy on the edges, yet still soft and chewy in the center. I didn’t chill my cookie dough before baking it, so they turned out to be a little flat, which personally, I don’t mind. If you want them to be more puffy and cakey, then I’d recommend chilling them for an hour or two before baking.
White Chocolate Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies
Adapted from Broma Bakery
Makes 14-16 large cookies
- ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch (optional, omit for a crunchier cookie)
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- ⅔ cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius, or 350 degrees Fahrenheit
- In a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or in a medium mixing bowl with an electric hand mixer, cream the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. With the wet ingredients mixing on low speed, slowly incorporate in the dry ingredients until almost combined. Fold in oats and white chocolate chips with a spatula until fully combined, and finally carefully fold in the blueberries, making sure not to break them
- Using a cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto a lined baking sheet (or just roll them into balls using your hands), leaving 2 inches in between each cookie. If you want a more puffy and cakey cookie, chill the cookie dough in the fridge for 1-2 hours before baking (I didn’t)
- Bake cookies for 19 minutes, or until just beginning to brown. Allow to cool on cooling rack before serving
