I’m definitely of the opinion that food is love. One of my favourite ways to show someone that I love them or that I care about them is to bake or cook up something that I know they’ll adore. So, with that in mind, these are my Father’s Day cookies.

Literally, every time my dad and I discuss baking, cookies, sweets, desserts, or anything along those lines, he mentions these cookies. Every.single.time. I made them for the first time maybe 4 years ago, and they’ve since become my favourite thing to give him on Fathers Day. He loves them, and it makes me happy to see him enjoy something that I’ve created.

I think I’ve always shown people that I love them through food. I make Eric dinner almost every night, and breakfast almost every morning. I love it when my bestie comes over for dinner, and I consider it my job to bring dessert to pretty much every gathering/celebration I go to.

Obviously, I don’t think that food is the only way to show affection and I don’t recommend turning to ice cream to reflect every mood you have…but sometimes, the you just want to give someone a cookie so that they know you care.

I can see why my dad is obsessed with these cookies. They’re soft and cakey in the middle with a bit of chewiness around the edges. One bite you get an explosion of blueberry flavour, and the other, you get a more subtle bit of white chocolate. I don’t even care if white chocolate isn’t real chocolate – it is amazing.

So on Sunday I put a big container of these in my dad’s hands, and needless to say…he was very, very happy. If you gift these to someone, they’ll be just as excited, promise ;-)

Enjoy!

White Chocolate and Blueberry Cookies

Adapted from Fruit! By Kathryn Hawkins. Makes approximately 24 cookies.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond)
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup fresh blueberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Spray with nonstick spray.
  2. Add butter and sugar to large mixing bowl. Beat with electric beaters on medium setting until light and creamy. Beat in egg yolk until combined.
  3. Add flour, salt, and baking powder. Beat until mixed. Add vanilla and almond milk and beat until combined – the dough will be fairly thick.
  4. Fold in white chocolate chips and blueberries.
  5. Using about two tablespoons of dough, roll into balls and place on baking sheets. Press down gently to flatten the tops of the cookies.
  6. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for about 10 minutes, then transfer to baking rack.

  1. I want a container of those too! Cause you love me, right?
    It is so nice that you cook for Eric daily. What a lucky man!
    These sounds so delicious. Blueberries and white chocolate are definitely 2 of my fave things. And white chocolate is not real chocolate?? Who says that?? Whatever – for me it is real stuff.

    • haha I spoil him And apparently, the low cocoa content means that it’s not technically chocolate….but it’s still awesome

  2. Right now I’m drinking my coffee and reading this post. It’s an African coffee that smells like blueberries. I bet these would be perfect dunkers for it

  3. You can bake for me any time, especially these cookies!!!

  4. Mmm I love the combo of berries & white chocolate, even more so in cookie form! Like you I definitely think food can be a display of love. Last night a friend and I cooked up a dinner for a few more of our friends and it was such a joy to see how much they enjoyed out cooking. Although I did make a citrus cake as part of dessert, I generally prefer to cook meals- I feel like I am more experimental than in baking!

    • that’s definitely fair! It’s easier to experiment with cooking – I’d rather not mess with experimental baking if I’m gifting it to someone!

  5. Now these cookies look amazing! I love the combination of blueberries and white chocolate! Yum!

    I absolutely love baking for others! I feel like sweets make people happy, so I love to make a dessert and watch everyone enjoy it. Making people happy makes me happy!

  6. These look fan-freakin-tastic. I love white chocolate and blueberry together!

  7. I am ALL about spreading the sweet, sweet love and bombarding people with desserts! Just ask my family and friends Okay so I need to pawn off the products of all the recipe I make, but I do actually love baking for people, and would do so even if my kitchen wasn’t overflowing with sweets. But these sound like perfection, lady! I haven’t had white chocolate in WAY too long and I think that needs to change.

    • haha I tend to do the same thing if I find myself with a ton of baking inspiration – the family and friends suddenly find themselves with a bunch of sweets.

  8. Oh my gosh! These are like perfect summer cookies. Being the American that I am, my mind immediately jumped to the 4th of July – if I added strawberries, they’d be red white and blue!
    I think it depends on the person, if I’d rather give them a meal or dessert. Like with my mom, definitely dessert. My dad would prefer dinner. My brother prob would prefer dessert. The boyfriend I don’t have better prefer dessert.

    • That’s an awesome idea! Perfectly patriotic…I’d just have to sub the blueberries for strawberries or raspberries

  9. Oh goodness hun!! These sound amazing I love to bake for people, although I haven’t in awhile. I associate flavors with people more than dishes…like my mum loves anything coconut or banana, while my dad is more of a key lime and chocolate fan. Always try to find something along those lines for each for their special days

  10. I’m a very scent and taste oriented person so food pretty much reminds me of everything. It results in some serious flashback moments where I’ll zone out in the middle of a meal and in my head end up somewhere else! Love these cookies! Made something similar on the blog but used dried blueberries!

  11. i love anything/everything with white chocolate!!

  12. I’d rather receive sweets than a meal because I’m so bad at making sweets myself! So it feels like a treat. Certain meals do remind me of certain people, but usually it’s because I ate those meals with those people. Or, spaghetti and cheese always reminds me of my grandmother, because she used to make it the best. A lot of foods remind me of her. Love the combo of blueberries and white chocolate here!

  13. how have i never thought of this combo? I need to try a healthy bites flavor like this, genius!

  14. These look amazing – I can see why your dad loves them!

    I love cooking and baking for others as a way to express my feelings, but also as a way to take care of them.

  15. I love cooking and baking for others! And I totally associate different foods with different people – Tacos with Kyle, home-cookin’ with my mom and Bagels + Lox and hummus (separate, of course, LOL!) with Kyle’s dad. It’s so funny that I never realized these associations before now

    • haha I do the same thing! My brother is Monster energy drink and anything Reese’s, my mom is anything chocolate!

  16. Love the idea of white chocolate + blueberries. Not really a pairing I usually think about it!! I’ll have to pin these to make soon

  17. I LOVE the flavors in these cookies. Lemon and blueberry, citrus and fresh berries combined with the magic that is white chocolate. Yes, yes please!!

    I also love to cook for people, whether it’s desserts, granola or an entire meal. It’s how I show my affection too, and I think it’s a pretty fabulous way to do it.
