Blueberry Lemony Cakies

Eudocia Romulus

I wanted to come up with a bar that would be different from the usual. I came up with a sort of hybrid cake/cookie--hence cakies! They were a total hit at the dog park (with my human friends!) I also took them to the office--one friend sent me an email saying it was the best thing I've ever baked! Baked them for the family and they everyone loved them!

1 1/2 c
all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp

1 large

1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
3/4 c

1/3 c

GLAZE

1/4 c

confectioners' sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350.

Line a 9 x 9 inch pan with foil for ease in removing baked bars.

Crush cookies with rolling pin or food processor. Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter and mix with crushed cookies. Press down
in pan to form crust. Bake 8-10 minutes.

Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In a small bowl, add the sugar and lemon zest. Rub them together with your fingers until well mixed. This brings out the lemon flavor.

Beat 3 tablespoons of the butter until creamy. Add the sugar/lemon mixture and beat until pale and fluffy. Add the egg, and beat well to mix. Add the vanilla, and beat on low. Mix in the flour mixture and the buttermilk in batches at low speed, beginning and ending with the flour.
2
Stir in blueberries.
Cover top of crust completely and sprinkle on coconut.
Bake approximately 30-40 minutes.

*I never have buttermilk.
Put 1/2 tablespoon in a cup, add 1/3 cup milk. Let sit about 5 min.
If you make a cup--fill a cup with 1 tablespoon, add 1 cup milk. (Can
add to glaze, if desired).

Drizzle cakies with glaze after cooling.
