Fourth of July Blueberry Softbakes

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 20 mins

From "The Ultimate Cookie Book" by Catherine Atkinson. I haven't tried this yet but I imagine it must be like the cookie cousin of the blueberry muffin. Yummy! You could also substitute fresh cranberries for the blueberries and substitute chopped preserved ginger for the dried cranberries. Times are estimates.

These were quite tasty, more like a drop scone than a soft cookie. I used the prescribed amounts of frozen blueberries and dried cranberries; one cup of blueberries seemed a bit excessive as the dough was hard to work with. When I make these again, I may try a chocolate chip variety.

Delicious! Made these for our 4th of July breakfast this morning, and I wasn't sure how they'd turn out. I was planning to use frozen blueberries and frozen cranberries, as I was uncertain what "semi-dried" cranberries were. I thought I had frozen blueberries in the freezer, but as it turned out I did not. So I ended up making these with just chopped up frozen cranberries, and they turned out GREAT! Whole family enjoyed this tremendously and I will definitely be making it again! Will probably experiment with other fruits and I also think it would have been yummy to add in some mini chocolate chips. Thanks for posting!!
