Early Valentines- Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies

I love wednesdays. Everyone is home for dinner on wednesday and we all eat together. There is something magical to a family dinner and I try to make it special every time (even when it's most times we're all home). Today for dessert I made Blueberry Oatmeal cookies with pink sprinkles in honor of valentine's day coming up.

The recipe:
1 stick butter and 1/2 stick margarine creamed with 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of raw sugar. Add 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1 egg. Once mixed well, slowly add 1 3/4 cup flour and 2 Tbs flax seeds.
By hand then mix in 2 cups of rolled oats and 1/2 to 1 cup Blueberry freezer jam.

Roll out into balls and bake in a 375 oven for 12 minutes. At the 6 minute mark, I sprinkled on the sugar. Let them cool on the cookie sheets and then move to a wire rack to finish cooling.
