Brown Sugar Blueberry Cookies

I found several varieties and reposts on multiple blogs with this recipe when I started to search for blueberry cookie recipes. Now that I have made the recipe, I see why it is on so many blogs. I had to add it to mine. These cookies taste like a great muffin. So you could almost rename this recipe as a cookie/muffin or breakfast cookie. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family is.

A great breakfast cookie

Tastes like a great muffin cookie

Helpful Hints:
  1. If you damp your hands before rolling the dough it will help the dough not to stick, as well as help the sugar to stick to the balls. . Be careful though that you don’t get the dough too wet from your hands.
  2. These cookies are quite tall and do rise up and out quite a bit. 2 inches a part is definately recommended.
  3. I haven’t tried it yet, but this recipe should taste good substituting strawberries for the blueberries.
  4. Each cookie is about 87 calories.
