Hello Lovely Readers,

Blueberry

This week has been really hectic and I baked and shot like almost 5 recipes. I know you guys must be wondering that I haven’t posted any of those since like 5 days but I just couldn’t manage to do it. So here I am today, posting my most favorite recipe of what I shot.

If you have been following my blog, you would know that I always do a mix of recipes through out the week. Like I post at least 1 dessert and 1 savory item on the blog per week. I avoid baking desserts through out the week. Though whenever I am thinking of what to post next all I can think of is some amazing dessert ๐Ÿ˜›

P.S- If you are fond of Cookies then this one is definitely a must try for all you Cookie Lovers.

Pies and Tarts are my ultimate favorite. Like you can find a lot of pie recipes on the blog. I prefer them over cakes honestly. My last strawberry hand pies was my absolute favorite. I am thinking of doing savory pies on the blog. Do you have any flavor or ingredient suggestion for the savory pies? Do let me know and I will definitely try them out. I do have a caramelized onion tart on my mind but I am still working on the recipe. ๐Ÿ˜›

I can go on and on discussing about my plans but lets now discuss what all of your are here for : Blueberry Pie Cookies ย  ย  ย  I had a box of Fresh Blueberries lying with me and I was wondering what should I bake. The first thing I thought of were blueberry muffins. But I had made a batch of my banana muffins (the recipe of which you are going to see soon) and I didn’t want to indulge in muffins again .So I was really confused between blueberry cookies and pies. I was literally craving both. Trust me. But my box of blueberry could suffice only 1 recipe. So I baked these beautiful blueberry cookies in the form of a pie.

P.S- Each and every bite of these offers the very best part of an actual Blueberry Pie, with all the convenience of a Cookie. You need no fork to eat these…Yippie

SERIOUSLY!! THIS IS THE BEST COOKIE I EVER HAD.

You know what I love the most about a blueberry pie or any other pie is the oozy baked sugar, chewy-ish bits of baked fruit that gets all caramelized to the crust…I am craving them again guys while writing this post .. but they were over the very same day. Anyways, that is my absolute favorite part of a fruit pie. How great are those sticky little chewy bites. Oh Gawd!! Those gooey and warm bites of Pie Heaven are my inspiration for these cookies.

I have made various pies with different fruits right from apples to strawberries to mangoes. But Blueberry is my ultimate favorite as there is no pitting or peeling involved in case of blueberries. Mix the blueberries with sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest for an amazing flavor. These pie cookies have not been made with any artificial dough. I have made fresh dough and fresh blueberry jam for these cookies.

P.S- For the best flavor use Fresh Blueberries.

Lets get started with the recipe now.

RECIPE: BLUEBERRY PIE COOKIES

MAKES: About 6 to 8 cookies

Prep Time: 45 mins (includes dough chilling time)

Baking Time: 20 mins

INGREDIENTS:

For the cookies dough:

  • All purpose Flour- 100 gms
  • Butter- 50 gms
  • Vanilla- 1 tsp
  • Sugar- 3 to 4 Tbsp (can vary according to how sweet you want. This one is just about perfect)
  • Chilled Water- 2 Tbsp
  • Salt- A pinch
  • Baking Powder- 1/2 tsp
  • Granulated Sugar- For sprinkling

For the blueberry jam:

  • Fresh Blueberries- 80 gms
  • Lemon Juice- 1 1/2 tbsp
  • Sugar- 4 Tbsp
  • Lemon Zest- 1 tsp
  • Water- 2 Tbsp

PROCESS:

In a saucepan mix all the ingredients under the blueberry jam and cook it for 5 to 10 mins on slow flame. Make sure you keep stirring. Close once the blueberries have cooked and reduced to a jam like consistency. Let it cool.

On the other hand, in a large bowl, take flour and add butter. Rub the butter and the flour together with the help of your fingers until you get a grainy mixture of flour. Add in the rest of the ingredients and form a dough. The dough wouldn’t be very fine but that is how it is supposed to be. Now cover it with a cling wrap or a foil and put it in the fridge for about 30 mins.

Once the dough is chilled roll is out by dusting some flour on the work slab and cut in into atleast 1/2 inch thick rounds with the help of a cookie cutter. Use the rest of the dough by rolling it and cutting it into thin strips.

Now place the blueberry mix on the surface of the round cut cookies and top it with thin strips in a criss-cross manner.

Once these cookies are ready, place them in a tray lined with parchment paper and place the tray for at least 10 mins in the refrigerator. Now sprinkle some granulated sugar on top.

Bake them for about 20 mins at 160 degrees in a pre-heated oven.

And Voila…. the best blueberry pie cookies are now ready. Enjoy them with a glass of milk or coffee or they are just amazing as it is.
