The berries from our local Saskatoon Berry farm are out of this world. While they do grow wild around here the farmed ones are much more tender and juicy than the wild. If you’re a Saskatoon Berry fan as I am, you may be on the lookout for different ways to serve these instead of simply baking them in a pie.
While I have several other Saskatoon berry recipes on this blog, here’s a new one. I picked up this cookie recipe last time I was at the farm, and changed it a little to make it more interesting.
- 3/4 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 Tbsp. milk
- 1 tsp. almond extract
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 cup medium unsweetened coconut
- 1 1/2 cups Saskatoon berries
- Using an electric mixer, combine butter, sugars, egg, milk and almond extract until light and fluffy.
- Whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt and add to the butter mixture.
- Add the rolled oats and coconut, mix thoroughly and then very gently stir in the Saskatoon berries. Be careful not to break them. You don’t want purple cookie dough!
- Place the dough in the fridge for 1 hour, then drop by spoonfuls on to parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 – 14 minutes.
