When I ran across this recipe, I knew I had to try it. Not just because it sounded good but my daughter juggles having a full time mom, two busy girls, after school activities for the girls and trains for tri’s – whew, that is a wild ride just thinking about it. Anyway, I knew these cookies would be great for her to keep in the freezer where she can pop one out on a morning that she is running late (oldest girl is a fashionista), warm it up at work and not go without breakfast! You can use fresh/frozen blueberries like I did or you can easily put in dried fruits like cranberries/blueberries/apricots/etc that would also be delish. Enjoy!!!!!
