They were really good! These cookies were a little sweeter than I was hoping for though, so I took it to the next level... I dipped them in chocolate. =)
And now I'm happy. Care to see how I made these? Here you go...
Start off with some butter:
Then add brown sugar:
White sugar, baking soda, and baking powder:
And a couple eggs:
Beat it all together:
Then add flour:
Mix the flour in too:
But don't mix it too much:
And finally, mix in a good amount of dried blueberries:
While your oven is heating, scoop by tablespoons onto a baking sheet:
|This is the version I tried with chopped dried strawberries and white chocolate chips, which were good, but also improved by dipping in semi-sweet chocolate.|
Then flatten slightly:
|Again, strawberry white-chocolate version.|
And bake...they are better if they are slightly under-baked, and when they come out, they will be a little puffy:
But after they have cooled a little they will sink and be chewy and soft in all the right places.
You can serve them up just like this:
Or you can melt some chocolate with a tiny bit of coconut oil or shortening:
And dip the cookies in it.
I dipped just the side of some of my cookies, and just the top of others:
When I was done dipping, I put the leftover chocolate in a bag and snipped a tiny bit off the corner, then drizzled the non-dipped side, just for fun.
I put a little too much coconut oil in my chocolate, so they wouldn't firm up at room temperature. I just stuck mine in the refrigerator and they came out fine. In fact, I actually prefer them cold.
Here is the recipe all in one place:
Give them a try! I think you'll like them. Oh, and for my mom, I have no doubt that these would be delicious 'healthified' =)
Every one of these pictures were taken with my new camera... and most of them are unedited, except for the watermark and a little cropping! That makes me incredibly happy. I ordered a remote for it, as well as a spare battery, and I'm really excited to play with it more.
Also! My Swedish Tracing Paper arrived, so I might actually get some sewing done in the near future. =)
