- A stand mixer is needed for creaming the butter and sugar and mixing your cookie dough. If you don't have a stand mixer, you can substitute an electric handheld mixer and a mixing bowl. If neither is available at home, some people use a whisk and a spatula. However, keep in mind that mixing everything together manually may require some extra effort.
- This recipe also requires a variety of mixing bowls and measuring cups. If measuring cups are not available, a digital weighing scale can be used, but everything must be converted to grams first.
- Use a baking sheet or baking pan that is suitable for high heat. Also, if the baking sheet is not nonstick, line it with parchment or wax paper to keep it from sticking to the pan.
- You may also use an ice cream scooper to scoop your cookie dough. This will help you achieve uniform cookie sizes. Don't worry, you can choose between large and small ice cream scoopers.
- In thawing your frozen blueberries, you can switch from stovetop to microwave. This will save you time and effort because it will take no more than 30 seconds.
- If you have fresh blueberries on hand, you can substitute those for frozen ones. All you have to do is cook it with a little sugar and a little water until it resembles jam and is a little watery. This works just as well as the frozen version for coloring your cookie dough.
