Making toasted coconut/butterscotch blondies, blueberry cookies, and cowboy cookies for the apartment house this month.
Found the recipe for the blueberry cookies here -
We skipped the chocolate dough for marbling and used only the blueberry dough, They are a nice blue color with bits of fruit. The first pan at 12 minutes was a little too overdone, so the others were in for only 10 minutes.
