Blueberry Cookies

Emma brought these into lab the other week as leftovers from her committee meeting (I too like to bribe my committee members with baked goods) and I absolutely had to have the recipe. I found out that it’s the same recipe she used for her cranberry cookies at Christmas, but with blueberries instead. Crazy how much different they taste, I would’ve never guessed.

Fruit in a cookie other than raisins was kind of a new concept to me as well. But it was like eating a more dense version of a blueberry muffin – Yum! Do you have a favorite fruit-cookie?


Ingredients:

COOKIES

1 stick unsalted butter, at room temp

1 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup milk

2 Tbsp orange juice (I used Pineapple-Mango)

3 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 cups fresh blueberries, frozen

ICING

1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened

2 cups powdered sugar

3-4 Tbsp milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place silpats on cookie sheets.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together 1 stick butter and sugars. Blend in egg, milk, and orange juice until just incorporated.
  4. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Carefully fold in blueberries.
  5. Spoon heaping teaspoon sized balls onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  6. Once cookies are cool, cream the 1/2 stick butter, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla together. Add more milk or powdered sugar to reach the desired consistency.
  7. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon of icing onto each cookie and spread to coat the surface. Allow to set before serving.
