Chewy Lemon & Blueberry Mace Oatmeal Cookies
The fall colors and weather are here, and there’s nothing better to come home to than a warm home flooded with the scent of freshly baked cookies.
My grandmother used to make oatmeal cookies with mace powder and lemon that were absolutely delicious. Alas, I misplaced her recipe years ago. Over the years, I have been trying different recipes to find one just like she used to make. This is the closest I’ve got. They have the perfect chewy, yet slightly crumbly texture.
Since blueberries go well with both mace and lemon, I added some dried ones to the recipe. The resulting cookie is one that’s perfect for a late morning or afternoon pick-me-up with a cup of coffee or tea.
When most people think of mace, they think of pepper spray. But the two have nothing in common!
Mace comes from the outer coating of nutmeg, pictured above as the Mace Blades. It has a bold, pungent yet sweeter flavor than nutmeg. We heavily recommend trying this spice, especially if you never have before.
