Blueberry & Lemon cookies

22/02/2015

Another grey Saturday resulted in me purchasing a vast amount of blueberries, and then turning them into the most delicious Blueberry & Lemon cookies. They are moist, slightly tangy and ever so yummy. Probably one of the most delicious and hyggelige cookies I have ever made, and tasted. So indulge, and give these a go, you are not going to regret it!!

Anya's tangy & scrumptious Lemon & Blueberry cookies

Here is the recipe for you all to enjoy:
Makes around 20 large cookies

Ingredients:

2.5 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
1.5 cups of fresh blueberries
4 table spoons of fresh lemon juice
1 cup of butter (100 g)
the rind of half an organic lemon

This is how you do:

Mix all the 'dry goods' together in a bowl. (sugar, flour, baking powder, vanilla sugar)

Melt the butter and leave to cool, then mix with the eggs, lemon juice, rind, and add the dry goods, bit by bit.

Carefully 'ladle' in the blueberries, without squashing them.

With a tablespoon or cookie spoon, spoon the dough onto baking paper, leaving space between the cookies, as they flatten out.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. 

Bake in the oven until golden brown - usually between 12-15 minutes - depending on size.

ENJOY.
