    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!

    A very nice recipe.The blueberries & lemon flavours go beautifully together. I forgot to add the almond extract, it still tasted yummy. I can imagine that it would be a nice addition to the recipe. I also didn't chill the mix as I'd used frozen blueberries and the mixture seemed firm enough. It made almost 3 dozen and probably would have if I'd sampled less as I was putting them on the tray! Thanks!
