Blueberry Sugar Cookies

Blueberry Sugar Cookies

A few weeks ago my mom bought some blueberry sugar cookies from a local farm stand, they were pretty delicious and I loved the idea of putting fruit inside of sugar cookies.  This weekend I decided to make cookies, and since we had blueberries in the fridge I figured it was the perfect time to try making blueberry sugar cookies.  As usually happens when I bake cookies I couldn’t find a recipe that I really liked so I combined a bunch of different recipes and just kind of made it up as I went along, it worked really well, these cookies were AMAZING.  We ate them all in less than one day.

In a separate bowl stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, then gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar/egg mixture.

Eat a few spoonfuls of dough (this is a key step in the cookie making process), then drop the dough onto a greased baking sheet.

Try not to eat them all at once (this is far more difficult than it may seem).
