Steps to Make Blueberry Pie Cookies
Preheat and Prep:
Turn on your oven to 350°F and grease two 12-cup muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.
Shape the Dough:
Roll the sugar cookie dough into balls and place them in the muffin tin.
Use a tart shaper dipped in flour or the back of a spoon to gently press the dough balls onto the sides of each cup. Be careful not to press too hard; you just want to create a nice edge on the crust.
Place the muffin tins in the oven and bake for 10-13 minutes until they reach a nice golden brown color.
Cool and Set:
After baking, use a tart shaper or the back of a spoon to redefine the center divot in each cookie. Let them cool completely in the pan before transferring them to a wire rack.
Fill the Cookies:
Use a tablespoon to scoop blueberry pie filling into each cookie crust.
Prepare the Icing:
In a separate bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Transfer the icing to a resealable sandwich bag, cut a small tip off one corner, and drizzle it over each cookie.
Serve or Store:
These cookies are ready to enjoy immediately, or you can cover and refrigerate them until you’re ready to serve.

Q: Can I use homemade blueberry pie filling?
A: Absolutely! If you have a homemade blueberry filling you love, go ahead and use it, especially during blueberry season.
- 1 package (16 oz) refrigerated break and bake sugar cookies
- 1 can (21 oz) blueberry pie filling
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease two 12-cup muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.
- Roll each sugar cookie into a ball and place it in a muffin tin. Use a tart shaper dipped in flour or the back of a spoon to gently press the dough into the pan and onto the sides. Be careful not to press too hard; keep the sides higher than the bottom to create an edge on the crust.
- Once all the muffin tins are full, bake for 10-13 minutes or until the cookies have a nice golden brown color.
- Remove the cookies from the oven and use a tart shaper or the back of a spoon to gently press the crust, making the center divot more pronounced. Allow the cookies to cool completely before transferring them to a wire rack.
- Use a tablespoon portion scoop to add blueberry pie filling to each cookie crust.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until the icing is smooth. Transfer the icing to a resealable sandwich bag, snip the tip, and drizzle it over each cookie.
- Serve the cookies immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
While the powdered sugar icing is scrumptious, it can be a bit tricky to get just right. We've found that it tends to settle into the blueberry filling, even when applied quickly. If you encounter this, you might consider using less milk for a thicker consistency, although we've found this doesn't always solve the issue. Feel free to experiment or opt for alternative toppings like a sprinkle of coarse sugar or a drizzle of melted white chocolate chips.
