Independence Day Cookies

Independence Day! The Fourth of July! Whatever you call it, make sure you celebrate it in style, like all Americans everywhere, eating to your hearts' content.

Try, for instance, this delicious Red, White, and Blue cookie recipe! This is completely my own recipe - so any complaints can be directed here. I haven't played around with it and have only made it once, but I thought it was DELICIOUS.

Anyway... here goes!

Jennifer's Red, White, and Blue Cookies

  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 package white chocolate pudding
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tbs. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 scant tsp. of salt (if using salted butter, half this)
  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1/4 scant cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup of oatmeal (optional - I also blended mine in the food processor to give it a finer texture. I imagine 2 and 1/4 heaping cup of white flour would also do the trick)
  • 6 oz dried cranberries
  • 4 oz dried blueberries
  • 1 package Nestle white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Mix together both flours, salt, baking soda, and oatmeal and set aside. I blended all mine up together in a food processor to make the oatmeal have a fine texture.
  3. Combine butter, sugars, and package of pudding on high speed until completely blended and fluffy. About two minutes on stand mixer.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, until completely blended. Add vanilla and mix.
  5. Reduce the speed of mixer and slowly add the flour mixture until just blended.
  6. Stir in dried cranberries, blueberries, and white chocolate chips.
  7. Scoop by the spoonful onto a nonstick or greased cookie sheet, and bake about 12-15 minutes at 325 degrees.
  8. Let cool 5 minutes and enjoy!

These were insane delicious. I don't normally like white chocolate or dried fruit, especially in my cookies, but altogether these were amazing. Daniel and my mom liked them too!

I hope you enjoy these and have a very blessed Fourth of July weekend!

Over, off, and out,

I wish I had something Americana to put in the background of the first cookie picture but I realized that I, a very patriotic America-loving Marine's daughter, doesn't have a single American flag or even a pin or something in the entire house. :(

I have lots of Christmas stuff...
