Baking Day..........

I baked some cookies  and it is my own recipe .  I am a crisp cookie person but these are what I call Blueberry Cakies and I love them!  They're like eating nut bread in a cookie and for a cookie recipe they're rather good for you too.  I've been experimenting with different recipes as I wanted a blueberry cookie but not a purple cookie.  This is what I finally came up with and they're not purple!  Yay!!!!
Here's the recipe if you'd like to try them.  They're great with a cup of tea.

Blueberry Cakies:     Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes

1 C dried blueberries
1 C water
3/4 C butter, softened
1 1/2 C sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
2 1/2 C flour (I used a white/wheat combo)
1 t soda
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t ground cloves
2 C oats
1/2 C chopped nuts

 Simmer blueberries and water over medium heat for about 15 minutes. ( Watch so the water doesn't dry up....if it starts getting low add some more.)  Drain, reserving the liquid.  If necessary, add water to make 1/2 C.
Mix softened butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla.  Stir in liquid.  Blend in remaining ingredients.  Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Cook until light brown if using white flour (mine are a little browner since I used half wheat flour).  Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Let me know what you  think if you try them.
Happy Trails!

  1. I'm so amazed with people like you who love experimenting different recipes, and share it with others. The feeling you can bring to a person is really incomparable when you cook for them. Anyway, I love cookies, so your post caught my attention. Those look delicious! Thank you for sharing the recipe! Can't wait to try my own batch. More power to you!
