Blueberries & Cream Cookies {Milk Bar Monday 1/28}

Happy Monday! The Milk Bar Monday ladies are back at it this week and have a special recipe for you (and our last Milk Bar cookie recipe!) the blueberries and cream cookies.

I first tried the blueberries and cream cookie when I was in NYC in September. I dragged my family to the location in midtown to fulfill my Milk Bar dreams.

While in the actual store I decided to make it worth my while. I got one of each cookie available (the blueberries & cream, compost, corn, and cornflake), a slice of crack pie and a cup of the kaffir lime and caramel soft serve… I wasn’t holding anything back.

I was excited to see what Christina’s cookies were like, especially the blueberries & cream one. Honestly, I wasn’t crazy about it. And that turned out to be what the entire family thought.

The MBM ladies and I had a similar discussion over email about our favorite cookies. Some favored the chocolate, some the corn, and others voted for the compost. I think my absolute favorite cookies we’ve made from the book are the cornchocolate and cornflake-marshmallow.

I thought the homemade blueberries & cream cookies were much better than the ones I bought in NYC. Maybe it was because I added extra milk crumbs, or maybe because I was able to make them crunchy around the edges. Or maybe the one I bought had been sitting around for a few days. Either way I was happy with my results.

A few notes on my process:

I made these when I visited my home this weekend which meant 2 things. 1 – I wasn’t able to use bread flour. 2 – I was able to bake in a convection oven.

The bread flour would have probably made a slight difference in the texture of the cookie, but I think you could use either type of flour and be ok. And the convection oven my mom has always bakes cookies more evenly than my apartment oven.

I ended up using blueberry flavored crasins because my local grocery didn’t have dried blueberries … and I wasn’t in the mood to hunt for them. The cranberries were super tasty leading me to believe you could sub almost any dried fruit. I think strawberries or cherries would be fabulous.

  1. Blueberry-flavored craisins- who knew? I agree that almost any dried fruit would work here. I bet that combo was great!

    I also added some extra milk crumb- I couldn’t waste them- they were so tasty! :)

    Your cookies look so golden, buttery and delicious!

  3. Hi, Erin!!!

    It’s been WAY too long since I’ve visited…so I’m happy to have a quiet Saturday morning to check up on your baking. These cookies look intriguing…and I like the idea of using blueberry flavored craisins. Have a lovely weekend!

  4. Your cookies look so good! I made these a few weeks ago and they came out flat and crispy. You’ve inspired me to try them again!

      Thanks!! You can do it! I’ve struggled with her cookies so much… Especially the marshmallow cornflake. I think the corn & chocolate were the best “looking” (& maybe tasting)

  5. The Milk Bar is on my bucket list. Nice to know the cookies were still great without the bread flour. And lucky you that you’ve got a convection oven!
