I just made these, they're excellent! I didn't alter the recipe at all. Thanks! I will definitely make these again!!

Loved the flavor! i added nuts as was suggested, and that was the right touch. These make a puffy, soft cookie. Not too sweet, just a delicate blueberry taste. I omitted the lemon as my family does not like lemon. i will for sure make these again. most likely very soon as this batch is not lasting long!
