  1. Butter is better as well healthier than margarine
  2. the first sheet I made, the cookies were pretty loose and runny, and the edges browned way too much compared to the rest of the cookie - easy fix - I added a couple more tablespoons of flour then a small handful of quick oats, and reduced the oven temp a bit. Wha-la! slightly better, still funky, blueberry drop cookies
  3. Awesome! I went Blueberry picking with my kids today, and I remembered reading this recipe earlier in the year. We made these up and are enjoying them quite a bit! I didn't have FRESH lemon, so I substituted 1/2 tsp Lemon Flavour. I baked one batch on my Pampered Chef bakers stone, took 13 min in my oven. Not golden, just starting in parts of the tops, but I don't mind at all!! They are delicious. Second batch I put on my Wilton cookie sheet for 13 minutes. They were dark golden on the bottom, white on top. Just as yummy as the others. I personally prefer the bakers stone for all my cookies. My oldest daughter turned to me, after her THIRD cookie, and said, "Mom, you HAVE to keep this recipe!" I will!!
  4. I'm not sure what happened since I followed the recipe to the letter. Mine came out as flat, spread out messes. I cooked the rest of the dough as bars and that came out fine. They tasted good. They were just very liquidy.
  5. My parents came to visit over the weekend and I made these cookies because my dad loves blueberries. I thought they turned out just fine and they did kind of remind me of blueberry muffins in a cookie form. Thanks, I will definitely make these again.
