Blueberry and Cream Cookies

About a week ago, I made blueberry cornbread, and bought way more blueberries than necessary for the recipe. I froze some for later use, but I still had a container that was on its last legs in the refrigerator, and needed to come up with another recipe quick. Blueberry and cream cookies. I’ve wanted to make blueberry cookies for a while now, but only saw recipes that called for dried blueberries. While that sounded OK, I wanted to try using fresh berries, and finally found a recipe from allrecipes that called for them. The recipe itself looked like a chocolate chip cookie recipe, so I adapted it to match my own, and made these blueberry and cream cookies.

These cookies were fantastic! They were soft and cake-like, with bursts of juice from the blueberries. The almond extract in this recipe (you can substitute vanilla if you’re allergic) added a nice sweet and nutty flavor that really complimented the berries. I think these would be the perfect cookie with a cup of tea; or at least I imagine it would. I couldn’t stop eating them right off the baking rack. One thing to make note of is that these cookies are best on the first, maybe second day only. I wanted to take them to work with me, at least what was left over, but with the blueberries being so fresh, they made the cookies a little too soft (uncomfortably soft) and moist. I didn’t think it would be a good idea to share them at that stage. Though these have become one of my favorite spring cookies, I would like to try them again with dried blueberries, and maybe make ice cream sandwiches. I also liked the cookie batter so much on its own, that I might make another batch with nothing else added.

blueberry and cream cookies

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (1-stick) unsalted butter room temperature
  • ¼ cup half and half ((milk is fine too))
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries picked over
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the egg, half and half and almond extract and mix on low speed until blended. Slowly add the flour mixture and mix just until incorporated. Switch to a spatula and fold in blueberries.

    Using a medium ice cream scoop or heaping tablespoons, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the dough mounds 2 inches apart.

    Bake the cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until the bottoms and edges are lightly browned about 12-15 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Cookies are best eaten within two days.

    Cookies of all kinds are my little guy’s favorite snack. Blueberry anything is my weakness, one I’m not usually willing to share. However, just this once, we will both enjoy making and eating these delightful treats.

    These look ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. I kid you not. Your photos of them are so good that I could almost eat my computer screen. Been breastfeeding for a lifetime or so (okay four years on and off) and I am RAVENOUS all the time…I need these cookies! And also your photography is incredible!

    Those cookies look so amazingly delicious! Kind of like a warm muffin in a tasty cookie package. I would definitely have no problem eating them all up in 1-2 days! Blueberries are on sale this week at my grocery store, I’ll have to pick some up to give this a try.

    I usually burn everything I bake so I try to stay away from baking but this recipe seems simple enough. These look so amazing I think I might have to give them a go. Blueberries have been so ripe & sweet lately. Plus on sale:-)

    Question: Can you swap our almond extract for vanilla?

    Cookies that need to be eaten within 1-2 days!? Sounds like my kind of cookie. I love a soft cakey type cookie too so will definitely try these – also reminded me I need to freeze left over fruit more often!! 🙂
