For me I have been seeing the buzz on the commercials and in store ads of all the Red, White and Blue items. What a better time to shop for those colors! I have seen some cute fashion and home decor. I cant stop thinking Red, White and Blue.

What would be funner to have after shopping for Red, White and Blue items? COOKIES! I found a recipe from Cookie Madness for Red, White and Blueberry Cookies. These look tasty!

Red White and Blueberry Cookies

1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup dried blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Have ready two ungreased cookie sheets.
In a medium size bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt.
In a second bowl cream butter and both sugars. Add egg and vanilla and beat for 30 seconds.
Add flour mixture and stir with a mixing spoon until well mixed. Stir in all dried berries and white chocolate, then drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 12-13 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

How do you like to celebrate Red, White and Blue? With Labor Day coming soon I am thinking it will be a fun holiday to end the Summer with a Red, White and Blue theme party.
