Yield: 36 servings

2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
¾ cup Blueberries, wild or frozen
½ cup Shortening
1 cup Sugar
1½ teaspoon Lemon rind, grated
1 \N Egg
¼ cup Milk (more if 2 c flour used

Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in blueberries. Do not thaw if using frozen berries.

Cream shortening until soft, gradually beat in sugar then lemon rind and egg.

Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beating until smooth after each addition. (Frozen blueberries could be folded in quickly at the end - the dough turns purple as they thaw.) Drop from teaspoon onto greased cookie sheet.
