A couple weeks ago when I went to a little bakery near my apartment and out of the corner of my eye, I saw that they had blueberry and white chocolate chip cookies. It’s safe to say I haven’t been able to get the idea of this cookie out of my head ever since. Often, when I crave chocolate or something “desserty,” it involves fruit or white chocolate so the sound of this cookie was just splendid. Blueberries and white chocolate all together in one cookie? Sign me up!

As I was looking around the great world wide web for recipes, I found lots of cookies that called for dried blueberries. But I had a nice big container of fresh berries in my fridge and really wanted to e those. I just love they way they burst in the oven and make baked goods look so beautiful.  So, I decided to make those blueberry and white chocolate cookies a reality in my kitchen… But I added in some lemon, too. Because lemon in cookies is never a bad idea. Especially in the summertime!

BLUEBERRY, LEMON, AND WHITE CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES RECIPE

This is a pretty typical cookie recipe and should be super simple for anyone to make! Simply cream the butter and brown sugar together. And then mix in the dry ingredients. Now, for the most important part… gently fold in the blueberries and white chocolate chunks.

Prettiest batter ever? I think so!

And bake until those cookies are just starting to turn golden around the edges. And the blueberries are the most beautiful color.

I obviously have the patience of a teething toddler and ate a couple while they were piping hot. Which I do recommend because the blueberries are still nice and warm and when you get a mouthful of that plus the melted white chocolate chunks, Oh.My.Goodness.

I don’t want to be a bad influence on you or your diet or whatever, but I have to recommend making these first thing in the morning because a blueberry lemon cookie right out of the oven for breakfast? It doesn’t get much better than that. And it’s fruit. So, you can’t feel too bad about it. Antioxidants for the win, right?

My second favorite part about these cookies (first being they blew my mind) is they are insanely quick to make. I literally got home from work at 3:00 and had to be showered, dressed, and out the door by 4:45 for dinner. And I still managed to successfully cram a baking session in there.

    Thank you for the wonderful recipe! I made these this weekend for a July 4th sail with my boyfriend, which happened to end with him as my fiancee. I strongly believe that these cookies contributed to this fact 🙂 Needless to say, this was a great dessert for what soon became our impromptu engagement party!

    Hi Ladies, I just had to share my husband’s thought after trying these cookies… “Where did you find this recipe? We Are Not Martha?? If I ever meet these ladies, I’ll give them a big hug”

    Maybe at a reunion someday, he’ll have the chance to say thanks, but in the mean time … Needless to say, I follow your recipes a lot – so, thank you from both of us 🙂

    Hello!
    I just made these cookies substituting black berries in for the blueberries… DELICIOUS!!! And perfect for ice cream sandwiches!

  14. Jenny says:

    Best cookies I’ve ever had in my life! Thank you for sharing…the only problem is I can’t quit eating them!!

  15. Just Jaime says:

    YUM! I made these last night and they are delish! I substituted the white chocolate chunks for regular white chocolate chips which wasn’t much of a change. I decided to leave out the zest and add 1/2 of dried blueberries as well, which gave it an added burst of blueberry flavor. I will be featuring my adaptation on my blog and linking back to your recipe for my inspiration. Thank you for sharing!

  16. Nan says:
