This is not a cookie. It's a muffin disguised as a cookie. I was very disappointed with it. It tasted ok however the appearance was not very attractive. Read More

This was not good! We even tried baking them as muffins after we saw the first few cookies bake. They were quite bland and gray in color. Not appetizing.SAVE YOUR BLUEBERRIES!!!! Read More

other than the really disgusting apperance they taste "OK". Def. need the frosting or something to make them sweeter. I baked one batch at 15 min. and another at 12 min.--need to bake longer for a firmer taste and appearence. My husband said he'd still eat them! Read More

Definitely reminded me of a blueberry muffin but still good. I melted buttercream frosting and glazed each for added sweetness. They were gone in 3 days:) Read More
