  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder
  • ¼ cup butter very soft
  • 3 eggs

  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (read second tip below before using frozen)
Instructions
  1. Mix with an electric mixer softened butter, half and half, and eggs.
  2. Crumble goat cheese into mix and blend together, some lumps are okay.
  3. Add lemon extract and all dry ingredients except flour and beat.
  4. Briefly beat in flour just until mixed, again some lumps are okay. At this point the batter maybe refrigerated for several hours.

Notes
TIPS FOR FREEZING BLUEBERRIES:
I pick blueberries every summer and freeze them for use all year long. The trick to freezing them is to use an orchard where they don’t spray any of their bushes. After picking, DO NOT WASH them, furthermore, spread them out on trays and let them air dry for a day. When they are totally dry, pick out any remaining stems or leaves as you place them into plastic containers. They will last for a year or better in the freezer. You can take these right out of the freezer (they will be loose, not stuck together), measure out what you need and put the rest back in the freezer. The frozen fruit you buy in the store can be wet and mushy because of the preservatives and they are frozen when they are damp.
