Here's the recipe for my Fourth of July Cookies in process.
Cook the blueberries, white sugar, lemon juice, and milk. Once you've got a silky purple mash, set aside the mixture to cool. This stuff is good enough to eat on its own...or on top of vanilla ice cream.
Cream the creamables: butter and light brown sugar.
Add the cooled blueberry mixture to the creamables. Mix. It looks messy, but don't worry.
Combine the dry ingredients. This recipe is loaded with flavorful stuff: dried cherries, fresh cherries, coconut, white chocolate chips, cooked blueberries, and fresh blueberries. Yup...red, white, and blue.
Add the dry ingredients to the combined creambles and cooked blueberries. Mix. Then chill to firm up.
Scoop, bake, and set off the fireworks. Happy Birthday, America!
