Instructions Checklist
  • Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl.

  • Beat butter in a mixing bowl using an electric mixer until creamy, about 1 minute. Add sugar and beat until blended. Add egg yolks one at a time, followed by blueberries, lemon zest, and vanilla extract. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat 1 minute more. Reduce the speed of the mixer to low and add flour mixture, mixing just until a smooth dough forms.

  • Divide dough in 1/2 and shape into logs 1 1/2 inches in diameter and 10 inches long. Wrap logs in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours or up to 3 days. Dough can also be frozen at this point and thawed when ready to bake.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place an oven rack in the center position.

  • Unwrap 1 dough log and slice into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Place rounds 1-inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges start to turn golden, 9 to 11 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, 15 to 30 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar when cool. Repeat baking process with remaining cookie dough.

Haven’t made these ye but will be cutting the sugar in half or maybe even use banana instead. when I do make them . You can buy dried wild blue berries from the bulk barn. They aren’t cheap tho but reeeeally good for you - way better than reg blueberries ?? Read More

7.5.19 Had to go to four stores to find dried blueberries (maybe dried blueberries just aren t a big thing in Florida) finally found them at Sprouts in the bulk foods section. Would suggest that you work fast when cutting the cookies because the dough softens quickly becoming a bit crumbly and difficult to cut without falling apart. Keep one cookie log in the fridge while you re cutting the other. They baked up nicely at 11 minutes with a texture that s just a bit chewy but the taste of a classic butter cookie you will have! Only one comment about the blueberries. They were hard to find and VERY expensive at 13.99 lb when I finally found them but I really didn t think the blueberry flavor popped in these cookies. If I make again I ll try using dried cherries (they d be a good partner to lemon) cut them into smaller pieces and that s a fruit that I easily can find (even at Aldi). These were tasty cookies even though I didn t think the blueberry flavor was pronounced and the lemon was subtle. They re easy to make and I would make again. Read More
