Blueberry butter cookies

Blueberries.. This beautiful indigo colored cute berries are native to North America. In India it's very hard to get this fruit fresh, But in some big cities you can get them caned or dried that also with great  difficult. Recently i started searching for some ingredients which we generaly don't use in indian cuisine. In that list this blueberries are one. It's quite natural most of us don't know what blueberries are and how they look. But this is a normal fruit in America. 
                                                In my search of blueberries I went in to store here where we normally get almost imported ingredients. This store have fresh fruit and vegetable section also I went in side, ask for blueberries. The store keeper said that they have and i was surprised and very happy. He ran to the fresh fruits section came back with bag full of Indian blackberry fruits. Which we all know very well as Jamuns or neredu pandlu in telugu. That time you must see my face all happy is gone and again started the search. Any way I finely got the dried once but never saw the fresh berries here. If anybody know that where we get fresh Blueberries in chennai please let me know. Here is the recipe for today........

I love blueberries and the cookies look good. BTW, they are not available in Mumbai too. Sometimes some of the hypermarts do stock fresh blueberries when it is in season.
