Millie's Blueberry Volcanos (cookies)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar, heaping
1/4 cup brown sugar, tightly packed, and heaping
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup 1/3 less fat baking sticks*, cut up
2 tsp. lemon extract (add a little more if you'd like)
1/4 cup egg substitute*
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, quartered


1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. lemon extract (more if desired)
1 Tbl. milk
3 large blueberries, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour (for dusting hands)

Preheat oven to 375*F. Combine all cookie ingredients (except blueberries) in a large mixing bowl; mix on medium high speed until crumbly. Add blueberris and mix well (dough should be slightly sticky).

Flour hands and form dough into balls, placing a large plump blueberry in the center. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets and bake at 375*F for 5 - 8 minutes, or until light brown around edges.

Remove from oven and let cool one inute, remove from cookie sheets and let cool. When cooled, drizzle (or spread) with icing.

Icing - Combine all icing ingredients and mix until drizzling (or spreading) consistency, adding more liquid if needed. Drizzle over cooled cookies.

Variation - Plain lemon cookies - omit blueberries, and add 2 Tbl. water, refrigerate for one hour before baking. You can still roll a blueberry in the center for a delicious cookie.

** You may substitute 1/2 cup butter for the low fat baking stick, and also 1 whole egg for the eggbeaters, but they will be flat and not quite as soft. Still taste good though. :)
