Medicated Blueberry Cobbler Cookies

I love Summer – one of the things I love about Summer in New England is the local variety of available fresh fruits and vegetables that we don’t have throughout the entire year.  Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits, and I love baking with blueberries.  My son Trevor is turning 24 next week, and he has requested a blueberry pie with a graham cracker crust, so that’s what I’ll be baking next weekend!  But for now, I wanted to share this yummy recipe for Medicated Blueberry Cobbler Cookies – this basic recipe is courtesy of http://countrycupboardcookies.com/blueberry-cobbler-cookies/ and I’ve simply substituted canna-coconut oil for the butter in this recipe.

INGREDIENTS
  • 4 ounces cannabutter or canna-coconut oil (1/2 cup or 1 stick)
  • 3 ounces white granulated sugar (1/3 cup)
  • 3 ounces packed light brown sugar (1/3 cup)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 6 ounces all-purpose flour (1⅓ cup)
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 ounces rolled oats (3/4 cup) *old-fashioned oats, not quick oats
  • 2 ounces roasted pecans (1/2 cup) *see below in notes
  • 4 ounces fresh blueberries, washed, drained and patted dry (3/4 cup)  *You can also use dried blueberries if you want!
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Roast pecans in 350 degree oven by placing pecan halves or pieces on cookie sheet, sprinkle with salt and roast for 8-10 minutes. Be careful not to burn. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  2. Cream softened butter and sugars.
  3. Add vanilla and egg and mix until well blended.
  4. Add flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and mix until ingredients come together.
  5. Add rolled oats and mix in.
  6. Add roasted and cooled pecans. If using pecan halves, break into chunky pieces.
  7. Remove beater from bowl and add fresh blueberries. Be sure to pat dry prior to adding to cookie batter. I use my hands for this step, be careful to avoid breaking the blueberries. It’s ok to break a few, but try to avoid mashing the blueberries or the cookie dough will be discolored.
  8. Let dough rest for 15 minutes to allow the oats to absorb some of the liquid.
  9. Scoop cookies into 2 inch dough balls using scoop or a large spoon. Use parchment lined cookie sheet if possible to avoid sticking. The blueberries will break and bubble a bit when baked.
  10. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 14-15 minutes. Edges will be brown and middle will be set. Allow to cool on cookie sheet. These are very moist and soft cookies. Be careful moving to a cooling rack.

I ended up with almost 3 dozen cookies with this recipe.  They are absolutely delicious!  Tip:  Keep your medicated cookies in the freezer and they will last a long time!
