Hi again! Happy Election Day!
I made cookies!!
Red, White, and Blue Cookies!!!
Since today we had the privilege to vote, I thought something a little patriotic would be fitting!! And, because these cookies have no political affiliation; they are a perfect Election Day treat for everyone.
Well, unless you don’t like cookies…….but then we couldn’t be friends, and you wouldn’t be reading this anyway! So, let’s just pretend that isn’t even a possibility!
We are all cookie lovers here, right??
These cookies are full of white chocolate, dried cherries, and dried blueberries!
So yummy, so yummy!! (Have you seen the kid’s show Yo Gabba Gabba? If not, you’re really missing out lucky! That’s where my “so yummy” comes from. You can hear it here if you are curious, but be prepared to have the song burned into your brain! Sorry!) But seriously, they are…….So Yummy! You should sing that song every time you eat one!
Red, White, and Blue Cookies
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 egg
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- (1) 5 oz. bag of dried cherries
- (1) 5 oz bag of dried blueberries
– Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray, or line with parchment paper. Set aside.
– In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
– Add in eggs, and mix until completely incorporated.
– In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
– Slowly sift the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, stir until combined.
– Fold in white chips, dried cherries and dried blueberries.
– Place heaping tablespoons on the prepared cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 12-14 minutes. Edges will start to brown.
– Allow the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 5 to 7 minutes. They stay soft for a while and firm up as they cool.
– Transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
Did you vote? I did…I even got my little sticker to prove it! 🙂
Luckily, voting only took about 2o minutes. I had a 3-year-old helper that probably wouldn’t have lasted much longer than that. Pretty much everyone in line asked him who he was voting for. Had I known this would happen, I would have totally coached him to say something ridiculous.
Anyway, I am super proud that I live in this country!! And, I am SOOO glad the political commercials are done…….enough already, huh?
I hope your voting experience went as smoothly as mine. And, since you voted (or even if you didn’t)……. you should have a cookie!
Regardless who wins, I hope you enjoy!!
