brown sugar blueberry cookies

yet another post from How Sweet It Is.  Jessica is a genius.  An evil genius!  These cookies were redonk!  They are a delicious change from chocolaty chocolate cookies.   And the smell is out of this world.  Here is Jessica’s recipe.

makes 12-15+ cookies

  • 1 stick butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 3/4 cup fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 375.

Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well until combine, about 2 minutes. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon with the mixer on low speed. Mix until dough comes together. Add in milk. If dough is still crumbly, add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until it comes together. Fold in blueberries gently with a spatula – it is okay if they break a bit. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Remove dough from fridge and roll into 1 1/2 inch balls or scoop out with an ice cream scooper. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Let cool completely.

Here is a mistake that I made.  I am impatient sometimes and I did not let my first round of cookies chill in the fridge for the full 30 minutes.  Don’t make the mistake I did.  They turned out like soppy pancakes.  CHILL YOUR BATTER.  Good thing I had enough of everything to make a second batch.  They turned out MUCH better.  Yum yum yum yum yum yum.
