Blueberry Pie Cookies

Pie season is over, right? WRONG! Even though we’re into COOKIE season, you can still have pie if you make Blueberry Pie Cookies!

Ugh, you guys. My credit card hurts. If it was a person, it would be battered and bruised. Black Friday and Cyber Monday and all the shopping got the better of me, I think.

There’s just something about a sale, you know? All the big font screaming 50% off! 25% savings! Free Shipping! gets me every time. A coupon comes in the mail and I literally get giddy. I don’t even want to look at my online credit card statement.

I’ll think I’m done shopping…and another email will show up. Entire store on sale!! Doorbusters!! And I’m sunk. I literally have 5 things in my Groupdealz cart. I don’t even like most of the stuff on Groupdealz!

It’s a problem.

Tell me I’m not alone?

Easy Blueberry Pie Cookies Recipe

The fact that Black Friday has come and gone means that we’re now into COOKIE season. While I’m sad that pie season has passed, (which I vehemently deny, BTW, pies are good all year long!) I love cookie season. I love how easy cookies are to make (and eat!)

But guess what? I decided that I still want to make pie in December. (What can I say? I’m a rebel.) But instead of making a traditional pie, I’m making PIE COOKIES.

I’m so smart.

Now, one of my favorite pies (blueberry) can be made into a Blueberry Pie Cookie: a shortbread cookie crust filled with blueberry pie filling and topped with white chocolate.

If these don’t scream cookie season, I don’t know what does!

Blueberry Pie Cookies with Wyman's of Maine

These cookies start with my favorite shortbread cookie dough. It’s a soft buttery dough that’s perfect for making cookie cups with. You simply press the dough into the bottom and up the sides of a mini muffin pan, creating a crust. Then you fill it with a homemade blueberry pie filling.

If you remember from other blueberry recipes I’ve made, my family prefers the “mini” blueberries in our baked goods. The technical term for these small blueberries is “wild”. Whenever I make baked oatmeal, cinnamon rolls, or baked pancakes, I always use these wild blueberries, which is why I’m excited to be working with Wyman’s of Maine for this post.

Wyman’s of Maine is the largest U.S. owned wild blueberry grower. All their fresh fruit is individually quick frozen to lock in the fresh fruit flavor. Plus – they’re mini!

These wild blueberries are perfect for making Blueberry Pie Cookies because they fit into the shortbread crust perfectly. The berries are tossed with cornstarch, sugar, and lemon before they’re added to the crusts. They bake up in the oven just like pie, and once they’re cooled I drizzled them with white chocolate for garnish.

I served these pies at a gathering of local bloggers last week and they were a hit. Amy even instagramed them. 🙂

Not only are they better than regular blueberry pie, but they’re pretty, bite sized, and perfect for holiday platters, parties, and gift giving. Also, they’re free, no coupon code or credit card required! 🙂

Blueberry Pie Cookies

These EASY Blueberry Pie Cookies are a shortbread cookie filled with blueberry pie and topped with white chocolate. The perfect holiday or anytime cookie!


Ingredients:

For the Cookie:



  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour


For the Filling and Topping:



  • 1 cup Wyman's Wild Blueberries, thawed and drained well

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil


Directions:


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray mini muffin pans with floured nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Place butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. (You can also use a hand mixer.) Beat butter until it’s smooth, then beat in powdered sugar. Beat in vanilla and salt and then slowly mix in flour. Beat until batter forms.

  3. Drop 1 tablespoon balls of cookie dough into each mini muffin pan cavity. Press it up the sides of the pan, creating a crust.

  4. Drain blueberries well. Toss with sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Evenly divide between the cookies, adding some of the liquid that collects in the bottom of the berry bowl but not too much.

  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the sides start to get golden in color. Cool completely before removing from pan.

  6. To top: stir white chocolate chips and vegetable oil in a small microwave safe bowl. Heat on 50% power in 30 second increments, until melted and smooth. Add to a small sandwich bag with the tip cut off and drizzle over cookies. Let set before serving.

  7. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

  1. It’s not just you. I bought sooooo many clothes the other day. And holiday gifts. And a knee brace. Dunno about that one, but my knee was hurting and I thought it might help. In other words, my credit card is very tired.
    I’m not over pie! I’m posting one next week. Besides, these cute little guys will make the best bite-sized holiday party treats!

  8. These cookie cups look amazing! Love that filling 🙂 They kind of remind me of a cross between jam bars, linzer cookies, and pie!

  9. I’m not familiar with groupdealz, but I LOVE wyman’s. Smoothies made with other frozen blueberries taste inferior.

  13. These look adorable! Love the idea Dorothy.

  14. These look delicious. I have always prided myself on my baking from scratch, but am currently working so many hours that I just don’t have time for it. Could canned blueberry pie filling be used instead of the fresh berries?

  15. These look delicious, and so darn pretty!  These will be perfect for the bake sale this weekend at my church.

  16. It’s not just you! I can’t stoppp shopping on line. I think my problem is Amazon prime. Just one click and I get a gift the next day! It’s just tooo easy.

  17. Oh my goodness, these blueberry pie cookies look sinfully delicious!  What a cute idea for the holidays.  Pinned!  🙂

  18. I’m so glad you said your credit card hurts!  I thought maybe it was a little too early in the season for mine to be hurting, but now I know I’m not alone!  At least we have delicious cookies such as these to ease the pain!!!

  19. I love it pie season and cookie season all in one! Love it…because why does pie season have to be ever over??

  20. These look so adorable!  I love pie.  I love cookies.  I love blueberries.  What is not to like about this?  I’d have to make one pan just for me.  

  21. Can you freeze them before the white choc is put on?

  22. Now THESE are totally genius. Pie and cookies! I actually like cookies better than pie, but I am all about pie COOKIES. That filling looks so juicy! And no, you’re totally not alone. There’s got to be some support group for online shopping addictions, right?!

  23. Girl you killed these cookies.  They are beyond amazing!

  24. How many of these did Trevor and I eat? Lost count. SO good! And don’t even talk to me about my credit card – with 4 family birthdays and 2 holidays, I might have to give up things like shampoo and cotton balls in January!

  25. Pie season is never over at our house and these look gorgeous! Love those blueberries!

  26. Dude, you might have a problem . . . I mean, I don’t know *anyone* who online shops out of control.  Who has like 18 cardigans but sees one for $9.99 and HAS to have it immediately . . . in five different colors.  Slippers for $4.99?  Buy TWO pairs.  Infinity scarves?  I mean, you can’t have enough of those.  But seriously, I don’t know anyone like that.  LOL!  LOVE these by the way.  Blueberries are a favorite around here!

  27. I avoided the Black Friday sales, but shopping is definitely in full force for Christmas now. I feel your pain!  These cookies are such a cute idea and I’ll bet they taste so good.

  28. These looks so perfect! And it means I don’t need to wait as long to enjoy some blueberry pie! 

  29. Well, I’m always ready for blueberry pie cookies! These look so good. 

  30. Obviously the perfect cookies for TODAY since it’s National Pie Day!! Love this idea.

  31. These were amazing! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  32. pies and cookies in one, it good idea. amazing 🙂

  33. Just wanted to let you know the shortbread was amazing. I made these with cherry pie filling instead and it was awesome! Can’t wait to try these with blueberries next. Thank you for your great recipes.

  34. HI, can you use fresh blueberries?

  35. These look totally amazing!

  36. Can you freeze the blueberry pie cookies?

  37. I made these and the family LOVES them!! The cookie is great and so easy to make! thank you!

  38. My husband is on a blueberry kick so I made these last night. Loved them!!!!!!!! I didn’t have a mini-muffin pan so I made half as thumbprint cookies and the other half in the regular muffin pan to see what worked better. The thumbprint version came out messy. All the juice bubbled out everywhere and turned the shortbread blue. The ones I made in the regular muffin pan came out looking more like mini pies than the thumbprints, just a bit thinner than yours made in the mini-muffin pan. I stuck with the 1 Tbsp of dough in each muffin cup, using my 1 Tbsp cookie dough scoop. You could double-up if you wanted more substantial cookies but I didn’t have much dough left. All were super yummy! But I wouldn’t hesitate to use a regular muffin tin for those who don’t have a mini-muffin tin…just make sure to spray each cup with nonstick spray.
