Remember a few days ago I was talking about the blueberry white chocolate cookies I had? And how I was going to try and crack the code for the recipe? Well I did. Sorta..
I thought about it for a bit, analyzed the cookie and came to the conclusion that it wasn't the natural blueberry, but was a dried blueberry. Now needing the assistant from my hubby, because, well I had a little accident.....I was trying to be a runner...and well stepped in a hole and rolled my ankle. So while being in the lazy chair (recliner) with my swollen ankle propped up, Dave put the blueberries in the dehydrator for me to dry out those fresh blueberries. Seriously all this for cookies, what a girl will do.
After letting them dry for 10 hours they were ready for baking. Since I couldn't be in the tennis tournament I was scheduled to be in this weekend, and missed because of my ankle incident, what a perfect excuse to bake and eat cookies to drown my sorrows in. I need to explain something..it's like 105 outside and I want to say how very fortunate I feel to have central air conditioning so I am able to bake. Believe me I know my blessing on this. I grew up without an air conditioner and when it was hot like this forget about turning on that oven. You didn't bake unless it was early in the morning, but mom wouldn't let me because it would heat up the house quicker. That memory popped in my head today because I remember being at a friend's house when I was a teenager and one of the sisters of my friend was baking cookies in the summertime when it was super hot. I was so amazed that they got to bake when it was so hot outside. Anyway, I don't know why I felt compelled to share that, but I just knew someday I would grow up and be able to bake in dead heat of summer.
Honestly for this recipe I just used your basic chocolate chip cookie dough recipe, with a touch more flour.
Added the white chocolate chips and dried blueberries and ta-da....yummy cookies. They were super good just out of the oven because the blueberries kinda hydrated themselves while baking, so there was a little moistness to them. They are now one of my favorite cookies.
And here is a little sneak peek at my new towels. I'll show them better later.
