Thanks for this recipe! I added a few things into it, like 1/2 tsp of Vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp of Almond extract, just to give it a little more zing to the flavor. Oh, I also added some macadamia nuts into the batch, and it came out Marvelous! Two thumbs up!
The colors are fun for July 4th picnics. The flavors of the berries and chips were yummy. The cookie base isn't anything spectacular - just a regualr cookie base. I cut the recipe in half and used half butter and half crisco (butter flavor).
I just made these cookies last night for my familly's oath of citizenship celebratrion and to take to work to share my joy there as well! It was difficult to find dried blueberries, I don't shop at the right stores apparently, so I used blueberry juice infused cranberries (store-bought). The color pattern was not red-white- blue like I anticipated. For my cookies the color scheme looked like a typical golden brown of a sugar cookie wiht the dark read of the cranberries coming through... the white chocolate was kinda small to see. I did add the 1/2 tsp of vanilla as suggested before. Overall the coookies tasted great!! The juice from berries kept the cookies very moist and aromatic. The dough was easy to handle and I even mixed it my hand. The cookies once cooled just slide off the cookie sheets. The cookies are very filling and tasty. The cookie consistency was kind of flakey which made for an interesting texture contrast compared to the fruit not like a typical hard shortbread cookie. I don't have much experience baking, as this was only my 4th batch and 4th recipe to try, but I would make these again.
Only made 1/2 a batch and then used 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening. The colors are great for any patriotic holiday. I made these for Memorial Day and they were a huge hit at the party. The did flatten out a little bit as they baked, but that may have been because of the butter that I used.
This cookie recipe was the best! I modified the recipe slightly after reading the reviews. I used 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of crisco and added 1 tsp of vanilla and they came out great!
OMG!!!! These are soooo good !!! I was only able to make half , but they are soooo worth it !!!!
The husband and I LOVED these. Used 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening (since I didn't have butter-flavored shortening, I added 1/4 t. of butter flavoring), and I added 1 t. vanilla. The cookies came out moist and delicious--more people need to find this recipe!
Pretty good, but nothing real special
