Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling

Did anyone else have a problem of the dough being sticky and hard to handle? I added a little more flour and it helped, but it was still sticky. Cookies tasted fine, nowever.

The best! I quadrupled this recipe and made only minor changes. Didn't have almonds, so I used hazelnuts. I also didn't read the directions all the way thru first and added the cinnamon to the cookie dough. So to make up for that, I dipped a glass in sugar and flattened each cookie and didn't use the icing. I use sugar in the raw and turkey eggs for all cookie recipes and it makes them all so light and crisp. This recipe is definitely a keeper, even with the mistake! I used dried cranberries infused with bluebery juice, because the dried blueberries were loaded with preservatives ... at least what was available at my market. Thank you Pamela, your recipe is now in my personal recipe book.
This is a good recipe, and various dried fruits (apricots, cranberries, etc.) can be substituted for the blueberries if you prefer not to use fresh. You can also use other types of nuts (pecans or walnuts) to change up the flavor, as not everyone likes almonds.
You can get dried blueberries & other dried fruits from www.nutsonline.com or just google dried blueberries. I love their dried strawberries. I'm making these cookies today for the first time for a 'girl trip' this weekend.
I loved these cookies! Very soft. I did not frost them
Costco sells large bags of dried blueberries -- great!
As blueberries do not abound where I live, would it hurt if I use dried fruits like apricots, raisins or prunes? Can I use Marciano cherries, as another option?
I would think you could, but keep in mind the cookies may be a lot more moist than the original recipe.
