These Cherry Blueberry Cookie Cups are a fun treat for those summer patriotic holidays.
Do you like cookies? I LOVE cookies! I like to read about them, bake them and, of course, eat them! So you can imagine my giddiness when I found the Fill the Cookie Jar group. What is that you ask? A group of bloggers that dedicate one post a month to a cookie recipe based on a monthly theme. And then we all link them together. This month the theme is “Patriotic Cookies”.
You are probably thinking “It is July 3rd! Isn’t that late for posting an Independence Day cookie recipe?” Well, yeah, I guess it is. But, you can pin these for next year, if you can wait that long. Or you can just make them NOW because the combination of cherries and blueberries in a cream cheese cookie cup is AWESOME! Just look at these beauties:
Since today would have been my dad’s birthday, it is appropriate that the basis of these cookies is one of his favorites, Cherry Nut Nuggets. I just used the dough for the cups, omitted the nuts and added some blueberry preserves.
And speaking of blueberry preserves, you can use any store bought version you like. Or if you want an absolutely incredible (and fast) recipe, check out Cupcake Rehab’s Blueberry Basil Preserves. Soooo good.
Until next time, happy eating.
