Blueberry Cookies

I got some blueberries at the market the other day with nothing particular in mind for them. 

Then I was browsing some recipe link parties and found this recipe at http://www.happierthanapiginmud.blogspot.com/ and thought I'd give them a try for Sunday evening Coffee Break at Church.

The cookie part was amazing and the berries added a pop of tartness.  I think next time I might drizzle some glaze over the cookies to add just a bit more sweetness.  Or maybe sprinkle some sugar on top before baking.


Blueberry Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup blueberries

Heat oven to 375.  Grease cookie sheet or use parchment paper on the cookie sheet.  Parchment paper works the best!

Mix the shortening and sugar together and then add the egg and milk.

Next add the flour, baking powder and salt.  Mix well.

Fold in blueberries gently.

Use cookie scoop or teaspoon to put dough onto cookie sheet.

Bake 8-12 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Let rest 1 minute before transferring cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Makes approx 36 cookies.

Share with family and friends.


My mom loves blueberries and she really liked these cookies.  So did my daughter, Kaylee, which was a surprise.

This recipe was something different for me.  Most things I make have some form of chocolate in them.  lol  These were a great way to mix it up a bit!


Please see my left sidebar for the great places I'll be linking to!

  8. They sound great! I love berries in baking. Last night my Youngest was bored so made raspberry muffins and they were amazing. Like you say, the4 snap of tartness in with the cookie/muffin makes it unusual and really good!

  9. Oh my goodness. It's one in the morning, and I should be going to bed, but instead I'm looking at your delicious food and my stomach is grumbling - because, well, there's NOTHING better than cookies! I (surprisingly!) have all the ingredients for this, and will totally be making it in the morning!
