These blueberry cookies are chock-full of chunky white chocolate chips, fresh orange zest and mint garnish. It’s the perfect sweet summer snack.

Although you can use fresh blueberries, our daughter used a bag of frozen blueberries that we had from Costco.

The flavor in this blueberry cookie recipe is brightened with the addition of fresh-squeezed orange juice and lemon juice. Be sure to use a good-quality orange (we like the oranges from Riverside, California) for the best flavor.

Before zesting your oranges and lemon, be sure that you have washed them well. You also want to avoid getting any of the white pith, as that will make your cookies bitter.

Blueberry Cookies Ingredients

  • Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salted butter
  • Sugar
  • Real vanilla extract
  • Orange
  • Lemon
  • Frozen blueberries
  • White chocolate chips
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Mint springs
  • Fresh orange zest

After mixing the dry and wet ingredients together, beat the mixture well in a KitchenAid stand mixer, then stir in the white chocolate chips.

Freezing the dough for 30 minutes allows you to more easily form the dough into balls before baking at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes.

This recipe for blueberry cookies makes about 12 portions. These are soft cookies, so if you want to give them a fancier presentation, use a mold and silpat liner when baking.
