This is how it went; she stopped by to ask if I would gather her mail while she was on vacation. Both being internet geeks, we chatted about her You Tube videos and web designing then on blogging, which for me includes cooking, of course. That is what prompted the thought of asking me for help. Disclosing first my newbie baking status, and sharing lessons learned, I happily agreed to assist.
We planned a Saturday baking date. First thing on the agenda was to review and discuss the outcome of her first attempt at baking these cookies. The texture and density were the problem, not the flavor. With the original version, Laurie described the cookies as similar in texture to a cake or muffin.
Original Blueberry Cookies
Adapted from All Recipes, our changes in italics
• 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1 pinch salt
• 1/2 cup butter, softened
• 1 cup white sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
• 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 cup fresh blueberries, 1 pint
• Zest of 1 lemon
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheet.
2. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
3. In a large bowl, cream butter with sugar. Beat in eggs, lemon flavoring and lemon zest. Mix in milk and flour mixture alternately in three parts, starting with the milk. Gently mix in blueberries. (The final product is thick, more like a cookie dough rather than a batter as in the first attempt)
5. Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
If you have fresh blueberries and need an idea try these cookies. I am certain you will not be disappointed!
