There is a story behind making this batch of cookies. Actually I made regular choco chip cookies and there was some cookie dough left behind. I tucked it away in the refrigerator for another lovely day as I was sure to have the time to make myself some cookies and enjoy with a hot cup of coffee. There is nothing more heavenly than eating a fresh batch of cookies straight from the oven while they are still warm!
So, what happened then ? My husband while rummaging stuff in the kitchen cupboard, found a half consumed packet of dried blueberries. He was the one who suggested as to why not we put them in the cookie dough. I quite liked the idea and the next day, late at noon, I made a sort of a jammy kind of blueberry mash and put this in the centre of two rounds of flattened cookie dough and baked them. Oooohh !!! they turned out so good…I was pretty happy about the entire thing 🙂
