  1. In a medium sized sauce pan, add the blueberries, syrup, water, lemon juice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Heat over medium heat.
  2. Bring filling to a boil, while stirring. Continue to stir frequently, while "mashing" the filling with a wooded spoon.
  3. Once the liquid has reduced, turn heat down and add arrowroot powder. Stir continuously until thickned. Remove from heat and set aside for filling the cookies. Can add additional ½ cup blueberries if desired.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, arrowroot, and salt.
