These were really nice cookies. I cooked them to take as dessert to a friends house who is following the weight watchers diet. We failed on that account though as I pepped them up by drizzling some melted white chocolate over the tops :p They rise up quite a lot, and you can certainly taste the lemon in the dough. They look really cute and are very easy to make. Thanks! Next time I might use raspberries instead of blueberries.
