Cheesecake Blueberry Cookies

One of our favorite parts of summer is blueberry picking. It’s fun, you get to be outside, and at the end you get a whole lot of cheap, amazing blueberries. If you haven’t gone, or haven’t gone recently, I highly recommend it. This year, Susie and I decided to make Cheesecake Blueberry Cookies. These cookies turned out super fluffy – we should maybe even call them Cheesecake Blueberry Muffin-top-Cookies. Either way, we know you’ll love them!

  • Add all other ingredients, except blueberries and white chocolate chips, and mix until well combined.
  • Finally, fold in the fresh blueberries and white chocolate chips with a wooden spoon or spatula, trying not to smoosh the blueberries. Some will break, but that’s ok.

  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes on parchment-paper lined cookie sheets. This dough is VERY sticky, but that fine! They’ll turn out great!
