* 1/2 cup shortening
* 1/4 cup milk

* 1 cup white sugar
* 1 teaspoon almond extract
* 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest

1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening, sugar, egg, milk, almond extract and lemon zest. Mix well after the addition of each ingredient. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; blend into the sugar mixture. Fold in the blueberries. Cover and chill for 4 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart.
