Fresh Blueberry Cookies- Mom's

Kathie Carr


When I was in junior high school I used to work at nearby farms for spending money during the summer. I picked a lot of blueberries one summer and we got to take some home every night. My Mom found this recipe that summer and it has been a favorite ever since.
