Deliciously Moist Sour Cream Blueberry Cookies

Updated on June 26, 2013

The price of blueberries finally came down to $2.50 a pint at Safeway this week. It is still an obscene amount for blueberries, but I had to buy a basket. I thought about just dumping them into a big bowl with some cream and a little sugar--my favorite way to eat blueberries. However, Country Boy said I had to share and I needed a quick dessert for unexpected company, so Blueberry Cookies it is.

I have always loved fresh blueberries. My mom used to line my highchair tray with blueberries when I was a baby and I would stay entertained for hours simply eating blueberries one by one. However, I don't typically enjoy blueberry desserts. These cookies totally changed all that. And Country Boy--who doesn't usually have much of a sweet tooth--ate 6 while they were cooling by the stove. I guess I will be buying more blueberries before the price goes back up! If the price every goes down, I would love to make a big batch of these cookies and freeze them because they are just that good!

Enjoy! I'm really glad I took this photo the moment the cookies came out of the oven. An hour later and they're all gone!
