How to make soft Blueberry Cookies

This absolutely delicious cookie recipe has been adapted from this viral vegan blueberry cookie recipe from Justine Snacks. My version uses regular butter and the addition of milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips. But the blueberry is truly the star of the show! If you’re in blueberry season, of course, use fresh blueberries, frozen berries will work perfectly too!

Gathering Blueberry Cookie Ingredients

All-purpose flour –  In order to measure flour correctly, I would recommend a kitchen scale. If you do not have one, fluff up your flour and use a spoon to gently scoop it into your measuring cup, then level with a butter knife. This will prevent using too much flour.

Baking powder

Pinch of salt – Salt is always wonderful to round out flavors and help to balance sweetness.

Unsalted Butter – Room temperature butter is best. Set out your butter 30 minutes before baking for the best result.

White granulated sugar – Regular white granulated sugar. Replace half of the sugar with brown sugar for an even chewier cookie.

Frozen blueberries – Straight from the freezer! No need to thaw the frozen berries or run out and buy fresh berries. I used frozen wild blueberries for this recipe, they tend to be a lot smaller than store-bought fresh blueberries. Honestly, I get them because they’re cute.

Chocolate chips – I’ve used a combination of semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips

Recipe FAQs

Can I use fresh instead of frozen blueberries?

Yes! I would still warm them in a saucepan or a microwave-safe bowl until they start to burst open. Add just a touch of water so they don’t burn. Slightly mashing the fresh blueberries will help some of the juices and colors come out. Remember not to drain the juices, it will be added to the dough mixture.

Do you have to thaw frozen blueberries before baking?

Most of the time, no you do not have to thaw frozen blueberries. Sometimes it makes a dessert even easier to make, especially when fresh blueberries are not in season. Frozen blueberries can usually be used interchangeably with fresh berries.

Do Blueberry Cookies have eggs?

No eggs in this cookie! Opt for Vegan butter and you’ll have a full Vegan Blueberry Cookie.

Tips for Making, Eating, & Storing Chewy Blueberry Cookies

Making

-When warming the blueberries, don’t drain the juice. Add all the blueberry juice to the dough as well. These juices help aid in that deep purple color.

-Using a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop to make cookie dough balls helps to ensure each cookie is the same size and bake evenly in the oven.

-For the best results, don’t skip the chilling of your dough. Not chilling your dough will result in very flat and likely overcooked cookies.

Eating

-I always love enjoying my cookies with tea or coffee.

-Give your vanilla ice cream some crunch and color with broken cookie bits.

Storing

-Store cooled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. It isn’t necessary to refrigerate cookies.

-Freeze cookie dough balls and baked cookies in an airtight container for 2 months.
