Blueberry Drop Cookies

Sunday, June 29, 2014

A childhood cookie made after we use to go wild blueberry picking in Upstate New York. We have so many recipes when it comes to fresh berries of all kinds, here is one of our favorites I am sharing and hope you and your families love it too!



blueberry cookies with frosting and red and blue sugar on top for a festive look on the 4th of July




A childhood favorite




There is a little part of me that says this is a little like a min muffin cookie, or a mini scone modern day, with the texture and flavors.





They are not too sweet and great with tea, perfect for those who don't want loads of sugary sweet cookies. This is the wonderful alternative.





The kids loved them when they were little and still as adults, I almost forgot about this one, so here it goes!





During the red, white and blue holiday, it's fun to drizzle white frosting and red with blue sugar sprinkled on top, perfect for 4th of July

Blueberry soft cookies are so easy to make




These cookies are a soft, moist cookie with blueberries inside.



They are not too sweet of a  cookie, they remind me a little of a sweetened cake like cookie with frosting.



I really love these to bring to the beach in the summer un frosted. You can eat them either way.



I frosted them for a festive 4th of July look, but they really don't need a thing!



These easy blueberry cookies are just delicate in flavor with a hint of lemon and cinnamon flavor.


The perfect summer blueberry cookie that anyone can make.

prep time: 5 minscook time: 12 minstotal time: 17 mins

ingredients:

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup fresh blueberries 
1/2 cup butter room temperature
2 tablespoons shortening
1 egg beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 cup milk

Frosting
2 cup powdered sugar
optional: 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract or vanilla
1 tablespoon softened butter
3 tablespoons water or more as needed until it makes a thick frosting

instructions:

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with either parchment paper or sprayed with cooking oil.


Beat the sugar and butter and shortening together until light around 2 minutes. Add all other ingredients except for the milk and blueberries, adding milk a little at a time until blended. Fold in the berries. Drop by tablespoons onto the cookie sheet and bake 12 to 15 minutes until set in the middle and edges begin to brown.

NOTE:
For frosting these all I do is mix powdered sugar and water to make a thick paste. I take a flat style knife to spread of the top while still warm and sprinkle with colored sugar.
