Red, White and Blues

I borrowed this neat recipe from Elena over at Manwaring Moments Before you say it, yes it's way late for a 4th of July cookie...so what ENJOY!

Today we're going to make "Red, White, and Blues". A tasty treat, just in time for your Fourth of July bash!

Start with your melted (or mostly melted if you're impatient like me) butter, and sugars. Cream them together then add the eggs.

Let it mix for a few minutes. It gets all fluffy and pretty. Add the flour, soda, and salt.

And now for the "red, white, & blue". Dried cranberries, white chocolate chips, and dried blueberries. Sounds like and interesting combo, but trust me, it works. Pour 'em right in.

And you certainly don't have to plate them all gorgeous-like before hand. But it does look like a little flag falling into your cookies if you do. (Cheap thrills, I know.)

Mmmmm....see all the patriotic bits of goodness in there? Delish I tell ya, delish!

Red, White, & Blues

1 1/2 c melted butter (real, salted butter)
2 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
Cream together then add:
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix until light and fluffy.
4 c. flour (this is a fairly soft dough, but if it seems really wet, add a little more.)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
Mix together then add:
1 package white chocolate chips
1/2 package dried blueberries (add more berries if you like)
1/2 package dried cranberries

Bake at 325 degrees for 12-14 minutes, let cool on pan before removing. (Helps keep them soft.)
