Hyperventilating because I have to make cookies for Fellowship Hour on Sunday, and I don't know what to make! Any suggestions? Something quick that looks good.

Chocolate chip cookies are always a winnner.

If you want something different.....


Blueberry White Chocolate Cookies


Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour

1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder

1⁄8 teaspoon salt

1⁄3 cup unsalted butter, softened

1⁄3 cup + 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1⁄3 cup frozen blueberries

1⁄2 cup white chocolate chips


Instructions at link below - important note - the instructions specify 15 minutes at 400F.  I did that on the center rack, and about 10 of my first batch of cookies were burned.  The rest were well done, but still good.  For the rest I was baking (I made enough dough for 4 batches, each batch only yields 12 cookies) I cut down the baking time to 12 1/2 minutes, and they seemed to be still a tad well done, so either cut down the baking time, or lower the temp of the oven.

Somehow I got myself into baking cookies for church again!! Arrgghh. I may do the blueberry ones. Thanks, Chuck. I also have a recipe that uses regular chocolate chips, white chips, as well as butterscotch chips. What are people's opinions about those?

Tell you what, that sounds real good to me!  :D

I'm glad to hear you say that. Butterscotch chips were hard to find and I had to pay $5 for the best quality (Toll House).

So how did the cookies turn out? Were they well received?

Yes! Several people asked me for the recipe. The butterscotch chips were worth the extra cost. They give the cookies lots of richness that regular cc cookies don't have.

I paniced in the middle of the night because I realized I skipped the step of removing the baked cookies from the sheet and placing them on a cooling rack before packing them in a box. I thought they would all be stuck together, but they were fine. Whew!
