Red, White and Blueberry Cookies

On Memorial Day, we had lunch with Matt at the community here in AZ since he had to work. For dessert, they had these Otis Spunkmeyer cookies called "Red, White, and Blueberry Cookies" and they were to die for. I went on a hunt to find something similar and didn't have much luck. I adapted another recipie I had and they didn't turn out that bad. Not as good as Otis Spunkmeyer, but we still gobbled them up. Anyway, here's the recipe for a fun patriotic cookie:

2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup crasins
2/3 cup dried blueberries
2/3 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat Oven to 350

Beat butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well.

Combine oats, flour, baking soda, and salt in a seperate bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. Stir in crasins, blueberries, and white chocolate chips.

Drop on cookie sheet and flatten with a spoon. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool on a wire rack.

Aren't they yummy!! I love the fruity taste and I'm a huge fan of white chocolate. I may need to make them again soon. I'm glad you liked them.
