Did you know...

...that it's your lucky day? Well, everyday is your lucky day because you get to breathe and live and be. Every day. All the time. But today is your EXTRA special day because Karli and I are feeling very generous. We're going to share a cookie recipe with you. You will love this one. You will HAVE to have it. I think we're calling them "Blue & Whites". (Woo, very inventive, I know.) You could bake them for a special occasion, say, a Colts game or Hanukkah (although that will have to wait for next year)...or just because you feel like eating a blueberry, white chocolate, and macadamia nut cookie. Follow me and prepare to drool.

The dough is very tasty, but I do not approve of it's being consumed before baking. That ol' heating apparatus just makes them unimaginatively better. Patience, Grasshopper, patience.

Hello, Bliss.

Yes, this is what I need, want, and live for. A tray of fresh, warm, gooey cookies. Blueberries, white chocolate, and macadamia nuts were a trio made in heaven.

Grab, chomp, grab, chomp, grab, chomp...

Blue and Whites

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried blueberries
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets or line them with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; add into the sugar mixture. Mix in the white chocolate chips, blueberries, and macadamia nuts. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets - two inches apart.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned and the centers still look doughy. Let cool slightly, then devour.
I hope you enjoy and bake some today for the Blue and White fans in your life.
Keep an eye out for a brand new cookie experiment. Three words: Red, Wine, Cookie. A Valentine's Day preparation.
