Blueberry Cookies

After learning that another family member was taking care of the carrot cake for this Sunday’s dinner, I wanted to bring a different sweet to our Easter table. This recipe is the perfect Spring treat. These cookies are light, fluffy, citrusy and delicious.

I based the cookies off of this recipe by Miss Karli Brae, but added a twist of my own by incorporating coconut.

Step 1: 

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs

Begin by mixing your butter and sugar in an electric mixer. I did a little arm workout and mixed mine by  hand and it worked just fine. Add in your eggs one at a time and continue to beat mixture together.

Step 2:

In a second bowl begin mixing the following:

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 1/4 cups cake flour

Step 3:

Add your second mixture of dry ingredients to your electric mixer (or bowl) with your mixed butter, sugar and eggs. Now for the best part: carefully add in your extra mix-ins.

  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of shredded coconut

Step 4:

Let your dough sit in your refrigerator for at least one hour and pre-heat your over to 350 degrees. Once both your dough and oven are ready, put about 1 tablespoon of your dough onto your cookie sheet and let your cookies cook for 11-14 mins or until the bottoms are golden brown. You want the dough to retain that white, fluffy Spring  look so be careful not to let the tops and sides of your cookies get too brown.
