Today I'm bringing you a warm-weather recipe for one of my favorite cookies. I'm willing to bet these Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies will become one of your favorites too!
These sweet and chewy cookies are a favorite of mine, not only because they taste so good, but because I can make them year-round, even when blueberries aren't in season. Huge fresh blueberries haven't made an appearance in our stores yet but that hasn't stopped me from baking these cookies. These sweet Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies are made with Craisins Dried Cranberries infused with blueberry juice. If you've never tasted Craisins, you're in for a treat.
Dried blueberries are delicious and low-calorie and they are lightly sweet, chewy and they're lovely tossed into cookie dough.
These tasty morsels of dried fruit provide the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness to these cookies. And with the addition of cream cheese to the cookie dough, the cookies become super soft and chewy, which is the way I love my cookies to be.
