ICE CREAM is the secret ingredient in these irresistible blueberry cookies! Blueberry Ice Cream Cookies are fluffy, delicious and packed with intense blueberry flavor.
My boys are at camp this week and I'm a bit of a mess about it. The house is so quiet. And lonely. Distraction has been key. After wandering around my house aimlessly for hours yesterday, I decided that I needed to bake. Yes, baking was the answer. A brilliant idea popped into my brain. Ice cream! Cookies made using ice cream! I didn't know how they'd turn out and was very happy to learn that my experiment worked. These Blueberry Ice Cream Cookies are so bold and flavorful and yummy.
Part of the reason I thought of adding melted ice cream to cookie batter is because we constantly have half-eaten containers of ice cream hanging out in our freezer. I see them every time I open it up and promise myself that I'll eat it soon. Turns out, vanilla ice cream adds incredible flavor to cookies. I'm going to experiment more with this little trick!
Using freeze-dried blueberries is a great way to infuse baked goods with intense fruit flavor. You can use a coffee grinder or food processor to turn it into a powder, or just throw them into a ziploc bag and pound with a heavy spoon.
Enjoy these delicious little morsels of blueberry heaven. I'm off to distract myself with more work! Have a wonderful week!
