Cherry and blueberry cookies are out of this world!

Everything’s right in the world with these sweet cherries and blueberry cookies!

 

I think cookies are my favorite food group of all time…unfortunately for my mid-life figure! I’d rather have a sweet, savory, light, melty little piece of heaven than most anything! This little morsel of goodness does the trick for any summer celebration, big or small. This recipe makes about 50 of these sweet bombs!

Sweet, wonderful cherries go great in anything!

Cherries are Good!

How could you go wrong with cherries, blueberries, white chocolate chips, and almonds? Seriously, there is so much fresh, sweet, flaky, buttery flavor in these babes; just a must for any event! The fresh blueberries, sweet Maraschino cherries, decadent white chocolate, and almond are the ultimate flavor bomb!

Best Basic Sugar Cookie Recipe

The basic cookie recipe was adapted from this recipe on The Goldlining Girl pinterest site. I added a few items like the blueberries and white chocolate chips. Eliminated the cherry extract  (if I had known cherry extract was going to be so hard to find I would have definitely ordered it here) because the grocery store didn’t carry it. Basically I used a thin confectioner’s sugar glaze made with the drained cherry juice and almond extract.

With out the glaze!

Half of the cookies were finished with the cherry glaze and the other half were left plain. If you don’t want to go the extra step of the glaze, they are still so yummy and delish without the glaze…I PROMISE!
