Almond Blueberry Cookies

I finally finished up with work this week and have much food to share. Here are some blueberry cookies I made last week. They are really best done with fresh blueberries.

Almond Blueberry Cookies

  • 3/4 cup organic shortening or butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup blueberries

Preheat oven to 350°. Cream together shortening, sugar, cinnamon and almond extract. Then incorporate the egg, followed by almond flour and flour with baking powder and pinch of salt. When the dough is done, gently mix in the blueberries so not to break them. For a neat cookie, take about 2 tablespoon of dough and form into a ball with your hand (will make about 20). Or you can do a drop cookie and just scoop dough straight to baking sheet. Remember to space them out, they will spread. Bake for 20mins, should be light golden brown all around.

When they are warm and soft, they are kind of like muffin tops. When they cool, they become crispier.

    What a great cookie flavor! Like taking a muffin and compressing it into a sweet little cookie! I am down with that, 100%.

    I’ve never had bluebrries inside of a cookie, but it reminds me of a softer version of a scone.

    These look wonderful, and I think I’ll try them with dried raspberries as well. Thank you!

    i think small diced apple with a bit more cinnamon might be interesting.

    These look super-yum! I had a blueberry craving earlier this past week, and wound up making a lemon-blueberry Bundt cake. I was all set to by fresh blueberries, but Whole Foods had organic ones for $7.99 a pint! Needless to say, I bought frozen. I’ll definitely have to give this recipe a go, though, perhaps with another fruit if the blueberries are still expensive.

    NOOOOOO DON’T BAKE THESE WITH FROZEN BERRIES. The frozen blueberries melt like mad in the oven and you’re left with mush. Very tasty/delicious mush. But mush nonetheless. I wanted cookies 😦

    […] recipe is adapted from Blueberry Almond Cookies on Eat Yet?. In the Eat Yet? recipe they didn’t use coconut and did use almond extract, so check that one […]
