Always get many people asking for thi blueberry oatmeal cookies recipe. They are lovely, as is. Much like an Oatmeal Raison cookie, with that hint of cinnamon, but, with Blueberries. These are special treats for my daughter and always bring big smiles. I made them last weekend, and they were such a hit I made them again this weekend. I also tried doing both a cranberry and cherry version which also were delicious. The only downfall with the cherry and cranberry is because they are bigger to start, they don’t provide the wonderful flavor balance the blueberry does. I will definitely use this cookie in the future! I like to use fresh berries whenever possible. but when not possible you have to make sure berries are not too moist.
