Massive & Stunning Blueberry Muffin Cookies

I’m completely obsessive about these blueberry muffin cookies! The right mix of cookie and muffin, these are merely unimaginable. They’ve a comfortable and tender texture bolstered with pockets of crisp, crumbly streusel. A contact of cream cheese and loads of blueberries retains them from being too candy, and the straightforward glaze is simply the cherry on high.

I’ve lately observed a in direction of larger-than-life, uniquely flavored “connoisseur” cookies (Crumbl impressed, maybe?) and have been itching to attempt my hand at them. My sister recommended the concept of a blueberry muffin cookie, and I instantly dove in.

Considerably miraculously, my very first try turned out completely (this by no means occurs, and I nonetheless needed to make them a number of instances after that simply to ensure they have been actually excellent — they’re). We’ve now made most likely 3 dozen batches since, simply because they’re so good!

These cookies make a wonderful brunch possibility (I ❤️ cookies for breakfast). You may as well wrap them individually in cellophane to present them as a present or promote at bake gross sales. Nevertheless you serve them, they’re merely AMAZING and I’m legitimately so excited so that you can attempt them.

What You Want

There are fairly a couple of components on this recipe (these are HUGE, connoisseur cookies, in spite of everything!). Let’s go over a couple of of the necessary ones earlier than diving in!

Overhead view of ingredients including flour, sugar, cream cheese, and blueberries.
  • Blueberries. Use recent blueberries. I discovered that frozen berries launched an excessive amount of moisture into the dough and left purple streaks so I go for recent. Now it solely the birds don’t eat all of the berries off my bushes this yr I’ll have a lot readily available to make these all summer time…
  • Cake flour. Whereas I resisted utilizing this ingredient in precise muffins for years, I’ve discovered it simply provides one thing additional to a thick cookie like this one (it’s additionally a star ingredient in my copycat Lofthouse cookies for that reason). It lends one thing particular to the the crumb of the cookie, giving the texture that somebody from Hogwarts might need actually tapped a magic wand on a blueberry muffin and reworked it into the right cookie. All function flour can be substituted, however the cookies have a much less wonderful crumb and are simply much less tender, I undoubtedly suggest making an attempt them with cake flour not less than as soon as!
  • All-purpose flour. Okay, cake flour is nice within the cookie dough, however I like to recommend all-purpose for the streusel. Now, you Bear in mind you’ll additionally want all-purpose flour for the streusel. Cake flour isn’t vital within the streusel the identical manner it’s within the cookie dough, and since all-purpose is cheaper and I at all times have some readily available, I go for this for the streusel. For those who solely have cake flour, although, go forward and use it, simply make certain to substitute properly.
  • Cream cheese. Cream cheese replicates the depth of taste and tang that traditional blueberry muffins have (that is usually from buttermilk, however buttermilk would make these too cakey). Make certain to make use of brick-style, full fats cream cheese. Don’t use the spreadable type offered in tubs.
  • Cornstarch. A secret ingredient in so lots of my cookies and muffins, that is one other key consider maintaining the blueberry muffin cookies comfortable, tender, and appropriately muffin-esque.

SAM’S TIP: Add the streusel on high AND in the course of the cookies! Whereas it may be tough to really see the streusel within the heart (and it gained’t be crisp just like the stuff on high), it provides taste and texture. With out it, the cookies are lacking one thing and are virtually too cakey.

I at all times attempt to spotlight essentially the most vital components and those I believe want essentially the most clarification, however if in case you have questions on any of the components, be happy to depart them within the feedback part. And keep in mind, that is simply an outline of the components I used and why. For the total recipe and full checklist of components, please scroll right down to the underside of the submit!

  4. Press a second heaping tablespoon of streusel on high of the cookie dough ball, very barely flattening it as you do (we nonetheless need the dough balls to be spherical). Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the cookies 2″ aside.

  3. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cookies and let it set earlier than having fun with.

SAM’S TIP: You’ll be able to skip the glaze, however I really feel it’s the excellent and most acceptable topping for blueberry muffin cookies. A sprinkle of coarse sugar earlier than the cookies go within the oven might additionally work, or mud the cookies with powdered sugar after they’ve cooled.

Steadily Requested Questions & Troubleshooting

Can I take advantage of frozen blueberries?

You possibly can, but it surely’s not my desire and I don’t suggest it. Frozen berries will introduce additional moisture within the dough and will make your cookies too cakey.

Can I take advantage of all-purpose flour for the cookie dough?

I like to recommend utilizing cake flour for the most effective outcomes. All-purpose flour might be substituted (ensure you substitute appropriately); nevertheless, your cookies gained’t be as comfortable and tender when you do.

Why are my cookies falling aside?

Make certain the blueberry muffin cookies cool utterly earlier than having fun with. They’re a bit fragile when heat and should disintegrate if picked up throughout this time. Additionally ensure you have really baked the cookies utterly by earlier than eradicating from the oven, or they’ll be fragile even as soon as they’ve cooled. Use the toothpick test to make sure they’re done. This doesn’t work with most cookies, however this batter is ideal for testing with a toothpick.

Why are my cookies dry?

Over-baking is the most probably offender of this. Make certain your cookies aren’t within the oven any longer than vital, and when you’re not assured that your oven is working true to temperature (Most don’t, I extremely suggest an oven thermometer, this is the one I use) test them a minute or extra early. Additionally, ensure you aren’t unintentionally over-measuring your flour.
