I plan to make a berry syrup for use in cookies or other pastries for the holidays. I recently got pounds of dried berries but I do not like how the pastries turn out with them. Its simple enough to make the syrup part, but I can't seem to find recipes anywhere for a cookie recipe using syrup! My syrup recipe is roughly: 2 cups dried berries, add 2 cups boiling water -> simmer -> 1 cup sugar -> reduce (~15 min) -> ~2 TBsp cornstarch, add lemon, ~1/8th tsp cinnamon. I've made syrups before so I'm not worried about this part. But how on Earth should I adjust a recipe to include a syrup instead of whole berries!?
