Soft Blueberry Button Cookies Recipe

I have fond memories of picking blueberries and enjoying icy cold lemonade at my aunt’s house. This cookie is an attempt to marry those two flavors and memories. —Renee Murby, Johnston, Rhode Island

"I was excited to incorporate blueberries into cookies but this recipe was a bit disappointing. Mine weren't as pretty as the picture either. But thank you for a fun recipe to try!"
