Is there anything better than trying to figure out what to do with a beautiful bounty of fresh, ripe blueberries?

We love summer berries and try to make the most of them all season while they last. Delicious in both savory and sweet dishes, blueberries are the perfect berry, in my opinion.

They are absolutely my favorite fruit to use in baked goods, like soft and chewy cookies. Because the skins hold in the juices better than other berries. Therefore, the moisture doesn’t affect the cookie batter and baked cookie texture as much.

Blueberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I was thinking of the perfect blueberry cookie recipe I realized that, while just the blueberries were lovely on their own, the cookies needed a little something extra to be truly luscious treats.

These Blueberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfectly sweet and decadent, with loads of bright flavor and a hint of richness from the white chocolate.

This brilliant blend of fresh blueberries, lemon zest, and white chocolate chips all nestled in a butter cookie dough creates the most tantalizing summer cookies to take to picnics and barbecues. Be ready to have these requested by family and friends all season!

How to Make Blueberry Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

Using a standing mixer you can easily make these cookies in just about 30 minutes.

Here’s how:

1. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line several baking sheets with parchment paper. 

2. Then, use an electric stand mixer to cream the butter and both sugars together (on high speed) until light and fluffy.

3. Scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula. Then turn the mixer on low and mix in the eggs, fresh lemon zest, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt. 

4. Scrape the bowl again, and then slowly beat in the flour little by little. Once the flour is fully combined, turn off the mixer and fold in the blueberries and white chocolate chips by hand, so that you don’t squash the blueberries.

Storing Blueberry Cookies

Can I Make Cookies with Frozen Blueberries?

You definitely can use frozen berries to make delicious Blueberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies.

While the cookies won’t have quite the same bright pop, there are a few tips you can use to make sure your frozen fruit still tastes fresh and delicious:

First, be sure to defrost the berries. Since these easy cookies don’t take long to bake, you don’t want to wind up with cookies that have half-frozen blueberries with a gummy texture.

And after thawing, thoroughly rinse and pat the berries dry. This will help prevent color bleeding and keep your dough from getting soggy.

How Do I Make Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Cookies?

Simply use your favorite gluten-free all-purpose flour baking substitute to make yummy GF cookies. Blends that have oat or almond flour in the base will tend to be the best tasting for this recipe.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line several baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Using an electric stand mixer, cream the butter and both sugars together (on high speed) until light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes.
  • Scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula. Then turn the mixer of low and mix in the eggs, lemon zest, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt.
  • Scrape the bowl again, then slowly beat in the flour. Once the flour is fully combined, turn off the mixer and add in the blueberries and white chocolate chips. GENTLY fold by hand, as to not squash the blueberries.
  • Roll the dough into 1 ¼ inch balls and place on the baking sheets 2 ½ inches apart. Press the tops, ever so slightly, to help keep the cookies uniform in shape.
  • Bake for 11-12 minutes until the edges are set, and slightly golden. Allow the cookies to rest on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes before moving.

Notes

You can use any type of fresh or frozen berry you like. Yet, blueberries “bleed” the least, therefore they do not affect the texture of the cookies as much as strawberries or raspberries might.
However, there are other berries, similar to blueberries, that have slightly different flavors, but bake just as well. Consider using Serviceberries, Huckleberries, and Bilberries.

  1. Looks and sounds so yummy. Could I swap the blueberries for raspberries? And if yes, anything I should alter about the recipe or instructions?

    • Hi Dallas,

      It’s worth a try. I would use frozen raspberries and get the cookies in the oven QUICK while the berries are still frozen. Then bake them an extra 1-2 minutes. That way, you don’t crush the berries as you mix them in.

  2. Very delicious! Whole family loved them!

  3. I made these substituting with ingredients on hand. Dried montmorency cherries, macadamia nuts, white chocolate. Really delicious!! Thanks. 

  4. So good, someone hide them from me

  5. Oh my goodness!! These cookies are ahhmazing!! The blueberries and white chocolate are a delicious combination!! 

  6. These are SO good!! I sometimes swap out the blueberries with raspberries- so tasty!

  7. These are really amazing treats! My kids loved every bite!
