Blueberry Pie Cookies

What do you do when you are craving both pies and cookies at the same time? Nothing much…You follow my recipe and bake these pie cookies ❤

Hello Lovely Readers,


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 😛



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. 😛


I can go on and on discussing about my plans but lets now discuss what all of your are here for : Blueberry Pie Cookies       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


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.


MAKES: About 6 to 8 cookies

Prep Time: 45 mins (includes dough chilling time)

Baking Time: 20 mins


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


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.

Chocolate Dipped Sweetheart Cookies

Are you an extreme Cookie Lover? Don’t know how to bake amazing Cookies? Try these sweetheart cookies and I bet these would be the best you have tasted. ❤


What can be more sinful than baking eggless, sweet, buttery and Chocolate Coated Cookies at home? Nothing Right? I love these cookies. They look so sinful and gorgeous than I cant stop adoring them. Its been quite some time that I have blogged something. So I though why not start with these amazing cookies. I have recently joined a workout session in a gym nearby.


Yes..Yes i know..Foodblogging and gymming dont go together. Actually, I am doing workouts so that I can eat without any guilt. 😛 You know..I am not much of a calorie counter. Due to my initial days of workout, i really had a sore body because of which I didnt have the stamina to make something new or blog. Finally, Its been about more than a week and I am back in form. I kind of did a little cheating and had few of these cookies today. LOL.

P.S- These chocolate dipped cookies are to die for.


Although these cookies give an impression of a lot of hardwork gone in to make these…These are fairly easy to bake. These cookies are ready in about 30 mins and its the easiest one could make. There is no hidden time when I say these cookies just took about 30 mins to bake and get ready. Ofcourse there is a dough chilling time which too isn’t much in this case. Just about 15 mins and you will be sorted with the dough.Easy to put together and really impressive these cookies are a must try.

Honestly, I love the entire process of making a cookie in comparison to the quantity of cookies I would eat. I just adore them. I have fairly about 1 or 2 of the batch of cookies I make and that is about it, But I love baking these. The aroma of a baked cookie in your kitchen is the best thing that can happen. So yes.. that is my favorite part.


Its not been more than an hour that I have baked these cookies and more than half the batch is over. These cookies are that addictive. If you have kids at home, I would suggest you to make loads of them. I make a really small quantity of anything new that I make so that I don’t waste much things if they don’t turn out to be nice.

P.S- These Cookies take less than an hour to get ready.

What can be more sinful than baking sweet, buttery, eggless and flavored cookies at home? Nothing right. These cookies are really pretty and you would love to bake them. The color is so gorgeous that I was in Awe with these. They are not too sweet and just taste perfect. I call them Sugar Kissed because the sugar dusting on top just enhances both its appearance and flavors. If you don’t prefer a sugar dusting on top you can alter it with coco or sprinklers or chocochips but trust me nothing replaces the sugar dusting for these cookies.

P.S- You will fall in ❤ with these cookies.


I tried my Double Chocolate Chip Cookies a while ago and they tasted yumm. This time I wanted a flavor different than the regular chocolate or butter in the cookies. When I am willing to try a new flavor to my dish… The first thing that comes to my mind are STRAWBERRIES. If you are a regular reader on my blog, I am sure you know my love for strawberries. I like…nah… I ❤ strawberries. I haven’t used fresh strawberries for the cookies because I just wanted the flavor. I have used strawberry syrup (Hershey’s) or any other that you can find in the market. An American Garden Strawberry Syrup would also work which is easily available. The quantity of the syrup totally depends on how strong you want the flavor to be but a minimum of 5 Tbsp is suggested to get a correct amount of flavor in the cookie. You can go ahead with your own experiments with any flavor you prefer.

P.S- If you are a beginner at baking try these cookies & you wont be disappointed.  🙂


If you have never baked cookies and you are a beginner at baking….I would suggest you to start with these cookies. They are really easy and require minimum ingredients infact only 5. If you keep the dough chilling time aside these cookies take barely 12 mins to bake and are ready in no time. I bet you can’t resist trying one of them right out of the oven. Well, I did it..They are buttery… and when I say buttery you really need to keep the calories aside. These cookies are chewy and soft. Don’t overbake them as you wont be able to enjoy these cookies. Over baking will make them hard and once they cool down and it wont taste as amazing as ever.


With very minimum ingredients the cookie dough is really easy to make but you need to chill the dough for about an hour. Chilling the dough is very important. Do not skip this step. Also do not over chill your dough. 1 hour or maximum 2 hours is more than enough. When you take the dough out of the refrigerator leave it for 10 mins so that it comes at room temperature. Over chilling of the dough will spoil our cookies. So you must be thinking :

Why is it important to chill the cookie dough?

Chilling the cookie dough is important so that you can handle the dough well. It helps in rolling out the dough well and also helps in baking. I know this step required alot of patience but its totally worth the wait. Once this step is over all you have to do is…Roll out the dough… Cut it in the desired shape.. Bake… and Enjoy your cookies.



Makes- 15 medium sized cookies

Prep Time- 1 hr 15 mins (Including Dough Chilling Time)

Baking Time- 12 to 14 mins

  • Strawberry Syrup- 4 to 5 Tbsp (Minimum)

2. Now add sugar, cornflour and baking powder and mix well.

3. Add vanilla essence and strawberry syrup and knead to form a dough.

5. Once the dough is chilled, leave it for 10 mins so that it comes down to a room temperature.

6. Divide the dough into equal medium sized balls. Make circle and then press it to give it a round and flat cookie shape. You may use a fork or cookie cutter to give it a design.

7. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place the cookies on it. Make sure you maintain atleast 2 inch gap between the cookies as they will spread a little while baking.

Strawberry Jim Jam Cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Do you ❤ Cookies? Don’t know how to Bake them ? Well I have the answer to these:

These cookies are the best I have made so far. They are the most fudge-y, chewy and chocolaty cookies you will eat and you wont be able to stay away from them!!! 



Its been quite sometime that I haven’t posted cookies on the blog. When deciding what next should be coming up on the blog ….. the only thing that was in my mind were “COOKIES”. Its not like, I didn’t try cookies for so long.. but my last attempt was a huge disaster. I am so glad that I finally made the best possible Double Chocolate Chip Cookies. I call them Double Chocolate Chip Cookies because it has loads of chocolate chips inside and on top too. I just cant get enough of chocolate chips ever. After my last attempt at chocolate chip cookies,  I never thought I would be able to bake them ever again. I didn’t follow my regular method of making cookies and instead followed a new technique. I was so sure that the technique would give me the best cookies that I made them double the quantity. To my bad luck, the cookies turned out awful. I added way too much butter to the cookies and they went totally flat and hard as stone. All I could do with them was dump them in the bin 😦



I am so happy that this time it wasn’t so. I went back to my method of baking cookies and they just turned out to be perfect. My Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are going to be your FAVORITE. You will love the recipe because it is really simple and like my all recipes this one is EGGLESS too. They BEST part about this recipe is that the cookies are chewy and not hard which is a really common mistake while baking. The outer layer does have a cookie crunch but it is really chewy inside.

P.S- I love my cookies chewy. ❤ If you like your cookies crunchy then wait for my next crunchy cookie recipe. 🙂



I added lots of chocolate chips inside the cookies too. I added both while chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips in them. I love the combination of these. But its entirely your choice. You can add either of the chocolate chips as per your liking. The combination just adds more flavor I believe. Though I preferred topping them with ultimate dark chocolate chip cookies. These are perfect to go with your evening coffee or when you want to snack on to something.

P.S- These are perfect for your midnight cravings!!

Baking these cookies is really easy. The preparation time is just about 15 to 20 mins and you cookie dough will be ready in a Jiffy. All you have to do is let your dough chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour. I know it needs a lot of patience. But trust me you will be way to happy with the final results. Chilling the cookie dough is really important. I would recommend not to skip this step at all. This helps in better handling of the dough and for a better texture. It helps you better in shaping the cookies. Do not over chill the dough…. this will again lead to making the cookies harder.



Once the dough is ready all you have to do is give them your favorite shape and bake them. Although I have all the shapes of a cookie cutter. My favorites are the heart shaped and the star shaped ones. I preferred sticking to the classic shape of chocolate chip cookies that is round. I made them slightly bigger in size so that I don’t end up having more than 1 cookie at a time 😛 The baking time for these cookies is barely 15 mins. Since I like these a little chewy you don’t need more than 15 mins to bake them. Your cookies will definitely become more firm once they cool down. Let them cool down on the wire rack for at least 30 mins before you start digging on them. Be careful while you transfer them.

My butteryy and tangyy Jim Jam cookies will melt your heart!!

These gorgeous looking Jam Filled Cookies are soo tasty…….. And the bestest part about them is that you have super fun making them. They are so so easy to make. I made about 2 batches of cookies and they were a favorite in the house. They look so pretty and the jam is the high light of these buttery cookies.

They are so buttery and chewyyy- which is the essence of these cookies……. As a kid most of us have loved Jam Filled Cookies…. They are like a treat to the eyes and the jam in it is so attractive looking.

The Choice of Jam can be totally yours… You could make right from Strawberry jam cookies to pineapple raspberry or blueberrry…. alll taste heavenlyyyy… 


Honestly, this was the first time I was baking a Jam Filled Cookie. Though the cookie is really easy to make it could be tricky at times. You might end up overfilling the Jam or the Jam would spill all over the cookies etc.

Welll….. even though all these thoughts were there in my mind I had to make them. And I BAKED them late night 😛

These cookies require a lot of patience. Since the dough is buttery you need to let it rest in the oven for at least 2 hours. I kept it for almost 3 hours. This makes the cookies soft and helps it rise!!

I was totally surprised by the way they turned out….so colorful and so tastyyyy….. AWESOME !!!!!

Do try baking them…. they are soo much fun making. 😀 And the baking time of these cookies is really less as you want your cookie to be chewy and soft.
