Red White and Blueberry Oatmeal cookies are on the guest buffet for July 4th at the Bottger Mansion are in honor of the holiday. The basic cookie recipe can easily be used with other dried fruits, nuts, or coconut. I’ve also used this recipe with a little lemon zest for lemon-blueberry oatmeal cookies and cranberry-orange oatmeal cookies.
Red White and Blueberry Cookies
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter until softened and creamy. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, and eggs. Beat until well mixed.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. With mixer running, gradually add flour mixture until well blended.
Mix in oats, blueberries, cherries and white chocolate chips until well blended.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls or scoop with a #40 scoop. Place several inches apart on baking sheet. Bake about 14 minutes or until golden.
