Brown Sugar Blueberry Cookies.
Certain things happen when you bake cookies that taste like muffins. Blueberry cookies, to be exact.
Cookies become breakfast food.
Midnight snacks too.
You pass them off as two servings of fruit. Or three.
You sleep-eat cookies.
You closet-eat cookies.
They somehow disappear.
Face, meet cookies. Cookies… I apologize.
Few things in this house bring excitement like a soft, fluffy cookie filled with bursting, plump blueberries. Me? Shoes and sea-salted chocolate. Him? Steak and Taylor Swift. In the non-creepy, he’s-old-enough-to-be-her-dad kind of way.
Yeah. I know. It’s semi-weird. Right? I remind him of it often.
Who wants a cookie?
Brown Sugar Blueberry 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
optional maple glaze
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon half and half
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 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.
optional maple glaze
- Whisk together the ingredients until smooth. If the mixture is too thin, whisk in more sugar 1/4 cup at a time. If it’s too thick, whisk in more syrup or half and half, 1 teaspoon at a time. Drizzle on cookies!

Cookies > muffins. Or maybe… cookies = muffins. Cookies/muffins?? I really don’t know. I told you I’m terrible at math.

I had some blueberries, didn’t know what to do with them, don’t care for cinamon so I left it out, hope they taste good, baking now

Just took these out of the oven. My kitchen smells amazing! I followed the recipe exactly and they came out just like the picture. This one is a keeper!
I love the sound of these! I can’t wait for fresh blueberries to be cheaper at the store.

Made these with my 2 year old today, they really are fantastic, thanks for sharing the recipe!
I just made these and they turned out perfect- also didn’t add any milk (lactose allergy) and had to cook them for about 17 minutes. I used Dole frozen blueberries and it make them nice and moist from the juice.

These were delicious! I made them with wild Himalayan blackberries I picked along a local bike path, like a sneaky ninja! Himalayan blackberries are a nasty invasive, so I don’t feel bad, but I still hid my little tupperware in my purse anytime anybody rode by. Not sure if that made me look more or less suspicious. . .
Can I used Self Raising flour instead? If yes, how much?

Wow these were spool good. I kind of tweeked them a little since I don’t care for cinnamon with blueberries. I omitted the cinnamon and added a little lemon juice about a tbsp and instead of milk I went for sour cream. When I folded in the blueberries I also put small chunks of cream cheese in. These are a permanent addition to my cookie folder and I cant wait for blueberry season from now on. Thanks

Do you think these would be good if I added chocolate chips to the recipe?
the cookies look so yummy! will try them. thanks for sharing! :)
My sister and I broke in her new Kitchen Aid with this recipe yesterday and it was fantastic!! We made 24 smaller cookies and they came out as the most adorable little nuggets – I’ll probably flatten the balls a little more next time if I opt to do small cookies again, but they were ever so cute that way as well. Even her ultra-picky husband came back for seconds, so I’ll call that a success. Thanks!
those look amazing! I might have to wait until I’m through my post christmas diet…but I will be back!
These sound fantastic!! Fresh blueberries? In a cookie? Unreal

I know I’m late… but I found your blog and this particular recipe via Stumble Upon, and I just tried the recipe… OMG! They are really delicious!
Thanks for this recipe (definitely a keeper!)!
Just whipped these up-super easy and quick to make. I had my sister and her boyfriend try it (they were like “blueberries?”) and they insisted on taking some with them they enjoyed them so much. Thanks for the recipe!
I have made these several times in the last month. I added a good handful of white chocolate chips and they are delicious!!
WOW. This is an amazing recipe. I usually cannot be trusted with baking, but these turned out perfectly. Due to desperately wanting to bake these right away, I made some substitutions. I used whole wheat flour, coconut milk instead of milk, and I skipped the vanilla extract, and they still turned out so delicious! They ARE like muffins, and that’s quite dangerous. Thanks for this recipe!

I just made these for my kids and they ROCKED! I’m so in love with this recipe that I’m sharing your link in my weekly CSA newsletter! Thank you, thank you!
heyy … one stick butter is equal to how many grams or cups exactly??
Hmm these look delicious, thanks for posting up this recipe, looks quite simple to make.
Hello, I have a question, I followed the recipe but when I took them out of the oven instead of looking flat they still looked like balls, why may this be?
Just made them but changed up the ingredients a bit, and just added powedered sugar on top and they are so delicious!! My family loves them. Thank you! :)

I made these and they were wonderful! I want to make them again, but I dont remember is one stick of butter 1 cup? Because sometimes the butter I buy comes in 1/2 cup sticks.
DO NOT USE FROZEN BLUBERRIES..
I did and the purple colors leaked out and ruined the cookie. Otherwise, they tasted fine.
