It’s important to get that chewy oatmeal cookie texture and this oatmeal cookie delivers. The dried blueberries are an outstanding compliment, which is what makes them Perfect Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies!
- 1 Cup Softened Unsalted Butter
- 1 Cup Light Brown Sugar
- 3/4 Cup Sugar
- 2 Room Temperature Eggs
- 1 1/2 Cups Unbleached Flour
- 1 1/2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Nutmeg
- 3 Cups Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 1 1/2 Cups Dried Blueberries
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large-size bowl cream the butter with an electric mixer until creamy. Add brown sugar and sugar. Beat for 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time. Sift together flour, kosher salt, baking powder, and nutmeg. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture. Stir to blend with a rubber spatula. Stir in oats and dried blueberries. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Form dough into 2 inch diameter balls and place on baking sheets. Place in oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Remember that every oven heats differently. You will want the bottom edges to turn a bit golden brown. Cookies will still be soft and feel a bit undercooked which is a good thing. Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheets for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool. Let cookies cool for about 30 minutes before serving. Makes about 24 cookies.
Victoria Hart Glavin has been cooking and writing recipes since she was a teenager. Originally from Nebraska, her appreciation for culinary technique took off when she moved to Lyon, France.
While living in France, Victoria studied French cooking from an expert Lyonnais chef. Victoria learned to love the local culture of preparing and enjoying fresh, seasonal foods. While in France, Victoria experienced the joys of shopping for local produce at the market and preparing fresh foods simply and beautifully in order to enhance the experience of the table. During her time in France, she says she “learned how to squeeze tomatoes at the local market” and “took everything in by osmosis.”
Currently, Victoria creates tasty treats in her tiny kitchen, in New York City, for all to enjoy and on weekends she explores Fairfield County where has a second home. Victoria has shared her recipes with others and now you can enjoy the Tiny New York Kitchen recipe collection, too!
