Blueberry Pie Cookies Ingredients
- Blueberries – since these are the star of the show, try to find the most fresh and high quality blueberries possible.
- Strawberries – provide a pop of color and some of their signature sweet flavor that compliments the blueberries.
- Raspberries – just like the strawberries, raspberries are used here for contrast and additional sweetness.
- Cream Cheese Frosting – you could also use a homemade glaze or vanilla frosting, but cream cheese is my recommendation.
- Pre Made Pie Crust Dough – sugar cookie dough will also work, but using pie crust for the cookie base really channels that classic flaky pie flavor!
- Star Cookie Cutter – or any shaped cookie cutter of your choice.
How to Make Blueberry Pie Cookies
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out the pie crust and cut out stars with the cookie cutter. Place on a cookie sheet. Use parchment paper for easier removal and cleanup.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until stars are golden brown. Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
- Frost each star with cream cheese frosting.
- Garnish the stars with blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.
Are blueberry pie cookies good?
Absolutely! These cookies combined simple baked pie crust with sweet and rich cream cheese frosting and fresh fruits for a dessert that’s as delicious as it is easy to make!
Is shortbread crust the same as pie crust?
No, these two types of dough are slightly different. Though made with similar ingredients, shortbread contains more butter than pie crust. This means the end result is a bit more dense and crumbly, as opposed to light and flaky.
Pie crust also requires a chilling period, whereas shortbread dough typically doesn’t call for this.
The two are similar in terms of having a buttery flavor, and shortbread is actually a potential substitute for pie crust in this recipe if you prefer it.
What can I do with cut off pie crust?
There are a number of things to do with pie crust scraps. Gather and re-roll them with some all purpose flour in order to cut out more cookie shapes.
If there isn’t enough pie crust for more cookies, you can bake the scraps and crumble them over top of your cookies for an additional topping.
Popular Variations and Substitutions
- Other blueberry pie cookie toppings include a sprinkle of granulated sugar, a dollop of jam, or crumbled baked pie crust.
- Instead of cream cheese frosting, make a simple homemade glaze with powdered sugar and lemon juice. Add a few drops of pure vanilla as well to give it a sweeter flavor.
- Puree some blueberries and mix them into the frosting or glaze to give your cookies a more distinct blueberry flavor.
- Use this same method to make apple pie cookies, peach pie cookies, and more! Just substitute with the fruit of your choosing.
- You can also omit the raspberries and strawberries and stick with the blueberries for a more focused flavor.
- Instead of plain blueberries, you could also top your pie crust cookies with a homemade blueberry pie filling. The simple ingredients you’ll need for this are cornstarch, sugar, water, lemon juice, and a cup of blueberries or two.
- Feel free to use any shape cookie cutter that you like. The stars are great for patriotic holidays, but a simple circle can be used as well.
- The pie crust gives these cookies their pie-like flakiness, but you could also bake sugar cookies, shortbread cookies, or other varieties. Then frost them and top with berries as instructed.
