Hi there! It’s Shannon from Cozy Country Living! Today is officially the first day of Summer and I am so excited to share this simple but delicious cookie recipe with you.
Everything you need (with the exception of 1 egg) to make these yummy Summer inspired cookies can be found right in your pantry!
I really enjoy summer. I love spending extra time with my children when they are out of school and I love that we live in an area that offers so many options for freshly grown fruits and vegetables. We have a pretty big garden here at home, but we also spend many afternoons at local farms and orchards picking our own fruit. While strawberries have just ripened and are ready for picking here, blueberries are next on the list. Those big, juicy, ripe blueberries are wonderful for just plain old snacking, or baked in cobblers or pies.
While I am waiting for those blueberries to ripen, I thought I would try packing some blueberry flavor into a tasty cookie using dried blueberries. That’s right. Dried Blueberries. While summer is full of all that fresh fruit goodness, sometimes you want a quick snack or dessert that doesn’t require a trip to the farm or local fruit stand.
These Blueberry Cobbler Oatmeal Cookies are slightly crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside and taste like summer’s best Blueberry Cobbler. Butter, old fashioned oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and of course the sweetened dried blueberries make these cookies a special treat. They smell amazing when they are baking in the oven and go well with a tall glass of milk.
My children were just getting home from school when these cookies were about ready to come out of the oven and they couldn’t wait to get their hands on them. As a mother, it always makes me feel good when the smell of something baking in the kitchen makes them feel at home and comforted, and it doesn’t matter what season it is.
These cookies really have become our new favorite and I hope your family will enjoy them as well. I know summer is busy, but this quick recipe is nice to have on hand for just that reason. It takes only a few minutes to mix up the batter and about 10 minutes to bake. This recipe makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies, so you will be able to freeze a few for later too! Enjoy!
