Sweetness on Sunday: Blueberry White Chocolate Almond Cookies

Mmmm...these are yummy. I made these lovelies for 4th of July this year and my whole family made them magically disappear.  I almost didn't get a chance to photograph them LOL.
Blueberry White Chocolate Almond Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare cookie sheet with parchment paper.

 2 cups all-purpose flour
 1 tsp baking powder
 1/2 tsp salt
 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
 1 cup packed light brown sugar
 1/2 cup sugar
 2 eggs
 1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
 1 tsp almond extract (I loooove almond extract, so I might have used a little extra)
 1/2 tsp lemon juice
 1 cup white chocolate chips
 3/4 cup chopped almonds
 4 ounces dried blueberries

~Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl and set aside. 
~With a mixer (I used a handheld), beat together butter and both sugars.  Add in eggs one at a time and beat until creamy.
~Add vanilla, almond extract, and lemon juice; beat until combined. 
~Slowly add in flour mixture and  mix just until combined.  Fold in blueberries, white chocolate  chips, and almonds. 
~Drop by generous tablespoonfuls onto parchment-line cookie sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart.  Bake for 9-11 minutes, until they just start to lightly brown on the bottoms.  Let cool slightly before moving to a wire rack to cool completely...or to your mouth while they are still warm :) I highly suggest the latter.

Hope you try these and love them.  They are healthy, right? Blueberries? Antioxidants? Riiiight. ;)

Until next time...
