Blueberries are my husbands very favorite and these cookies were very good! I freeze blueberries when they are in season and used frozen berries in this recipe. No problem.
These are really plain...not very flavorful. I added a glaze of 1/4 cup each sour cream and sugar, 2 tbs orange juice and 2 tbs butter- boiled in in a saucepan for 2 minutes then glazed the cookies with it. I think they improved significantly with a glaze added- I thought about doing a lemon glaze too. Even a strusel kind of topping added to them before they are baked would probably make them tasty too- but this recipe as is is not very flavorful.
After reading the comments, I reduced almond ext to 1/4 tsp, and used 3/4 tsps
vanilla. These cookies tasted divine, esp. warm -- like a little bit of heaven, I
absolutely cannot rave enough about the taste. They are very difficult to make,
though, because you want to make sure each cookie has at least one berry,
but the cookies should be small because they spread a lot in the oven. Also, as
another commented, they collapse -- when removed from the sheet, some of the
bottoms literally dropped out, so I would suggest cooling on a flat surface, or
on a rack with a very tight weave.
The first time I followed the recepie exactly. Making these cookies made me realize that I'm not too big on the bitter almond taste. Second time around, I substituded the almond extract for vanilla and I also didn't cool them, but they still turned out great. They were so delicious, that they made me feel guilty afterward, but it's nothing a little walk in the park won't fix. I will definatly make these cookies again. Thankyou!!! : )
These cookies were the bomb! I didn't have any lemons so I substituted 1/2 t. lemon extract for the lemon zest and only used 1/2 t. vanilla. I used my small Pampered Chef cookie scoop and each cookie turned out perfectly! They are a little crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. My 15 year old son loved them! Thanks for a great, easy recipe!
These cookies llok and taste like blueberry muffin tops! They freeze well (open container to air to defrost or cookies will get gooey) and stay soft for a long time. The almond flavoring can be reduced if you aren't big on strong flavor, or substitute vanilla flavoring.
I made this with chopped apples instead of blueberries. Used 1 teasp vanilla, 1teasp cinnamon and 1/4 teasp cloves instead of the almond extract and lemon. Came out great!
Wonderful cookies that are sort of a cross between a cookie and a muffin. One suggestion...refrigerate overnight. The first time we made these we refrigerated overnight and they turned out wonderful. The second time we started them in the morning and baked in the early afternoon, letting the dough sit for about 4 hours like the recipe said. They didn't come out quite as good....still good but a little soggy. I plan to make these again and prepare the dough the night before.
