Tips for the Best Blueberry Cookies
- Mixing the cookie dough is very easy and straight-forward. Make sure to beat the dough (step 5) for the full 3 minutes.
- The milk is included in the recipe just in case your dough turns out a bit dry. I usually only use 1 tablespoon of milk instead of two.
- Be gentle, and go slowly when it’s time to mix in the blueberries. Try very hard not to break any. When forming the balls of dough, include at least 2 blueberries in each one. It’s even better if you can manage to fit in three!
- These blueberry cookies freeze very well. I divide them into portions of 8, and place them in resealable freezer bags. They are so easy to pull out of the freezer for a quick snack or dessert.
Can frozen blueberries be used?
Fresh blueberries work best in this recipe, but if you want to use frozen blueberries, make sure they are completely thawed. Separate them on paper towels, and let them defrost at room temperature. Before adding to the cookie dough, gently toss them in 1 or 2 teaspoons of flour.

Handy Kitchen Tools:
This is my favorite type of cookie recipe. It uses basic pantry ingredients, so as long as you have blueberries in the refrigerator, these cookies can be made any time. I can’t refer to these blueberry cookies as healthy…but the calorie count is reasonable, and like anything else we eat, portion control is the key. The combination of the brown sugar, cinnamon, and blueberries is so delicious that I hope you give this recipe a try.
Until next time…
