  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, cream together butter with both kinds of sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Then mix in eggs, one at a time, followed by extract and lemon zest.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly mix that into the creamed butter. Stir in rolled oats.
  3. Very last, gently fold in blueberries, trying to keep them as whole as possible.
  4. Making heaping tablespoon-sized cookies out of the dough and spread them out on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake cookies at 375 degrees F. for 10-12 minutes, rotating the sheet pans once halfway through. The cookies are done when they are a light golden brown around the edges. It’s okay if they are soft in the center.
  6. Remove cookies and let cool. Finish cooling on a wire rack. Store cookies in the fridge if storing longer than a day.
