Can fresh blueberries be used instead of dried blueberries for baking cookies? This is for a cookie recipe that calls for 1/2 cup dried blueberries.

1 Answer 1


No, that's not going to work. The fresh blueberries are mostly water, and all that water will definitely be enough to throw off the cookies. Other options:

  • use a different kind of dried fruit
  • dry the berries yourself, probably more work than you want (see this question)
  • turn them into thumbprint cookies, and use blueberry jam (if that works with your recipe)
