hey procrastibakers! i’m off to a bbq today, which is certainly more exciting than the myriad errands i have piled up since coming home. grocery shopping, mopping my floor, taking out the garbage– and those are just the errands i can think of from my perch here in my kitchen. yikes.

anyway, i hate going to things like this empty handed, and so i thought i’d make some jelly drop cookies with some fresh homemade blueberry spread (i forgot i still had blueberries in my freezer!). these cookies are super easy, super tasty, and quick to make, which is good, since i have to head out of here soon. nothing like the last minute!


  1. blueberry spread (follow this link for the recipe!)
  2. mixing bowl; baking sheet
  3. 1  stick butter
  4. 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  5. 1 egg
  6. 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour

step one. preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. grease your baking sheet, or spray it with some non-stick spray.

step two. prep your blueberry spread. alternatively, you can use store-bought jelly, but seriously, the spread is so easy to do and it’ll taste fresh and delicious!

step three. in your mixing bowl, beat the (softened/melty) butter and sugar until it’s fluffy. add the egg and continue to beat. finally, add the flour until the mixture becomes dough-y.

step four. rolling the dough into small balls (a little smaller than a ping pong ball), space them evenly on your baking sheet and in the center, press your thumb so there’s a little well for the blueberry spread. gently spoon a little of the blueberries into each well. bake each tray of cookies you make (probably 3 or so from this recipe) for 10 minutes each, or until the bottoms are golden and the blueberries have firmed a little.
