Best Blackberry Cookies Recipe
- ¾ cup blackberries fresh or frozen
- 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
- ⅓ cup butter softened
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- Puree the blackberries with a handheld immersion blender and set them aside. If you used heat to defrost frozen blackberries, ensure that they’re cool before adding to the dough.
- In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the cooled blackberry puree and the vanilla. Beat well.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the blackberry mixture and stir by hand until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips, reserving about ¼ of them to add to the cookies after baking.
- The dough will be very soft. Cover the dough and place it in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
- Roll tablespoonfuls of the dough into balls. Place them onto the cookie sheet and press down slightly.
- Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are set. Cool on the tray for a few minutes, and then press the remaining chocolate chips onto the cookies. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
