Blueberry & White Chocolate-chip Cookies(Eggless)

Blueberry White Chocolate-chip Cookies
I've been staying off baking or a while,the bread was an exception.Of course,when the baking itch strikes there's no stopping but I am consciously avoiding going through recipes which calls for oodles of butter.Which reminds me,what puts you off a baking recipe?For me it is the number of eggs used and the amount of butter.Any recipe which calls for more than 4 eggs and 150(or more)grams of butter makes me alert.

Every time I looked inside the baking shelf,all the pretty cake tin liners and cupcake liners seemed to call out to me.I had shopped like a mad woman during my last visit to Ernakulam and felt guilty that I had not used a single item till date.Top it with the goodies my vanni got for me.I decided I had to bake after all:)

The plan was to bake a batch of Vanilla cupcakes-butter was measured,eggs were kept out from fridge and flour container drawn out.I had to make dinner too so decided the cupcake baking can wait.While I was making dinner,a sudden thought crossed my mind and that was about the packet of dried blueberries my bro-in-law had got me from Korea.We kept munching on it,so there wasn't much left to go into cakes or cupcakes.
Blueberry White Chocolate-chip Cookies
So off it went into these cookies.Google came up with a lot of results which gave me the idea of combining blueberries with white chocolate chips,but I stuck to my basic cookie dough recipe which gets me perfect result every time.It didn't disappoint and with the addition of brown sugar,tasted even better!

Blueberry White Chocolate-Chip Cookies(Eggless)

Ingredients

Butter - 1/2 cup/100gms,room temperature
Light brown sugar - 3/4 cup(or a mix of white and brown sugar)
Vanilla - 1 tsp

Salt - a pinch
Dried blueberries - 1/2 cup
White chocolate chips - 1/2 cup
Milk - 2 tbsp,if required

Blueberry White Chocolate-chip Cookies-step3 
Knead with your fingertips till you get a smooth dough.If the dough is not coming together,add milk 1 tsp at a time.
Rest the dough for about 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 160C.Grease/line a cookie tray.
Blueberry White Chocolate-chip Cookies-step4 
Take 1 tablespoonful of dough and place it on the cookie tray.Using the tines of a fork,press the cookie a little.(I made one batch like this and another where I took tablespoonful of dough,rolled it in my palm and flattened it)
Blueberry White Chocolate-chip Cookies 
Bake for 20-22 minutes.The cookies will be soft in the middle but will harden once it cools down.

Blueberry White Chocolate-chip Cookies 
Notes
  • Every oven is different,so keep an eye on the cookies after 15 minutes.Do not over bake or the cookies will turn out hard.
  • Adding brown sugar is optional,you can use regular white sugar too,or a mix of both.
  • Black currants would work well as a substitute if you do not have dried blueberries in hand.

  7. The cookies look great! and so does all the stuff you have added to your baking pantry. I have been a reader for a long time and know your love for brownies. So I had to share this little treat with you that makes a really quick fudgy brownie in a single portion size in few seconds. Mix 2 tbsp packed brown sugar + 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder + 1 heaped tbsp maida/all purpose flour + 1 tbsp oil and add just enough milk to make it into a silky paste (approx 2 tbsp). Add chopped walnuts (optional but recommended) and microwave it till the top is just about set, that is when you touch the top it should not be wet. It takes about 40 seconds in my microwave. That's it! Dig in :) its fudgy (with no molten center) and very chocolatey, requires no eggs and just a tbsp of oil. I've made it thrice since I've discovered it and once even added coffee (made with milk)instead of plain milk to give a nice choco-coffee flavor. Yum! You gotto try this! I think about you everytime I make it.
