      1/2   ts           Salt
      3/4   c            Blueberries, wild or frozen

   Combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Stir in blueberries. Do not thaw if
   using frozen berries.
   
   Cream shortening until soft, gradually beat in sugar then lemon rind and
   egg.
   
   Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beating until smooth after each
   addition.  (Frozen blueberries could be folded in quickly at the end - the
   dough turns purple as they thaw.) Drop from teaspoon onto greased cookie
   sheet.
