Buttermilk Blueberry Scookies
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
Added fresh zest from one lemon. Used dried blueberries in place of fresh, stirred them right into dough. After baking and cooling, drizzled a glaze made from lemon juice and powdered sugar. These are so good, will serve at the next neighborhood tea. BTW- use your big mixer with whisk attachment to cut in butter. Works the same and easier ! :-)
I find this idea of making cookies from scone dough very clever! I did substitute frozen whole cranberries as I hadn't the blueberries available. My adjustments were: 1 tsp. salt and 1 Tbsp. ground orange! I'd rolled dough in cinnamon-sugar mixture and used 1/2 cup sugar in the dough. I dropped by tablespoonfuls onto cooking-spray-coated foil-lined baking sheets and baked just 11 minutes at 375o F.I took some to the social hour at my retirement community and shared the balance with our coffee shop. Everyone really enjoyed these scookies and commented on how delicious the flavor was. Thank you for sharing this recipe with Taste of Home! delowenstein
