These blueberry muffin top cookies were a bit of an accidental discovery. It’s always exciting when a baking experiment somehow works out and suddenly you have a new creation! Originally, I set out to make regular blueberry cookies, but the end result came out of the oven with the texture of a fluffy muffin. A cookie/muffin hybrid? Sign me up!
Did you ever see the Seinfeld episode “Muffin Tops”? The characters decide that the best part of a muffin is the top, so they create a business out of the idea. The muffin tops are a hit, but what to do with the muffin bottoms? Suddenly they have growing mountain of muffin bottoms to dispose of and comedy pandemonium ensues… You get the picture. Well, apparently, I accidentally discovered the solution. Make blueberry muffin top cookies instead!
I was skeptical when I put these blueberry muffin top cookies in the oven, but they turned out to be delicious! Fluffy, sweet, and full of blueberries. They are wonderful warmed up with a cup of tea or as a quick snack to satisfy a sweet tooth. Either way, I think this new invention will be baked up again very soon. Yay for surprising baking discoveries!
