Blueberry White Chocolate Cookies

It’s here – one of Hubby’s favorite times of the year – blueberry season!! We’ll be getting up bright and early tomorrow to head up north a bit to go blueberry picking. I swear Hubby eats more than he puts in the bucket, but that’s between you and me.

Blueberry White Chocolate Cookies

We’ve already been getting blueberries in our CSA box which has been awesome. Mostly, we’ve been mixing them in our yogurt for breakfast, but I wanted to bake with them too. You guys might remember that I actually don’t like raw blueberries (or cherries, or grapes). I’d much rather have those fruits in something baked.

Blueberry White Chocolate Cookies

I stumbled upon this cookie recipe and loved the idea of white chocolate and oats playing along with the blueberries in a cookie. I’ve made cookies with fresh blueberries in them before (it was a long time ago, be sure to click through to check out the pictures I took of those cookies! It’s kind of awesome to see where I started all those years ago…) I remember loving how the little berries burst in your mouth releasing their ripe juice in every bite. These cookies do the same thing and got rave reviews when I took them to a friend’s house.

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together. Stir in egg and vanilla. Whip until light and fluffy.

Stir in all dry ingredients until just incorporated. Carefully stir in chocolate chunks and blueberries.

    I grew up calling them Samoas and didn’t like them when I was selling them, but have since grown to love them. Great twist on a traditional rice krispie treat!

      I can’t tell if the naming thing is regional or not. I know people who grew up in Indiana like me who call them Samoas. They’ll always be Caramel Delites to me.

    I’ve been wondering why they aren’t always called Samoas!

    Are the pecans there for the Samoa flavor or just an extra addition?

    • beantownbaker — March 18th, 2014 @ 8:03 am

      They add some texture but you could leave them out if you wanted.

    Awesome recipe! Let me provide a little insight to the naming of the cookies (Caramel deLights vs Samoas my wife is a girl scout troop leader). The girl scouts rely on a few bakeries to produce their cookies. Caramel deLights are made by one bakery, while Samoas are made by another.

    Just made these – very tasty, but I had a lot of trouble with the caramel layer. It hardened so much, I couldn’t cut the squares. I had to heat them up a bit to cut through the caramel, and then they got rather sticky and did not cut cleanly. Followed directions exactly, not sure what went wrong…

    On Sunday nights, my hubby leads a college-age Bible study group and I use the kids/young adults as my guinea pigs for trying new recipes. I made these yesterday and they LOVED them. Thank you for the recipe!
