  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Crinkle Coating:

  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup powdered sugar


  1. Prepare Blueberries: Defrost blueberries in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Allow them to cool without draining to preserve the flavorful juices.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a large bowl, mix cooled blueberries and their juice with sugar and vegetable oil. Stir in egg whites, lemon zest, and vanilla extract until fully combined.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually mix dry ingredients into the wet mixture in two batches until just combined. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  5. Prepare for Baking: Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Prepare the crinkle coating by placing each type of sugar in separate small bowls.
  6. Form Cookies: Scoop 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough, form it into a ball. Roll the ball first in white sugar, then in powdered sugar to coat thoroughly. Place on the prepared baking sheet, spacing cookies 1 1/2 inches apart.
  7. Bake: Bake for 8-10 minutes, until just set. Cool briefly on sheets, then transfer to a cooling rack.


  • Serve these cookies fresh or slightly warmed to enhance the blueberry and lemon flavors.
  • They pair wonderfully with tea or a light dessert wine.
  • Store in an airtight container to keep moist. Refresh in a low oven if needed before serving.

A: Yes, fresh blueberries can be used but be gentle when mixing to avoid crushing them.
