Blueberry Cream Cheese Cookies with a Lemon Glaze

Perfect moist and puffy cookies with fresh blueberries bursting inside.  These cookies are a mix between a blueberry muffin and a soft and chewy cookie.  Drizzled in a lemon glaze, these will become a new favorite!


I am celebrating a pretty special occasion today with some of my favorite blog friends.  Our friend over at Something Swanky is having a boy!  So we are throwing her a virtual baby shower to celebrate.  I wanted to bring some delicious cookies and these Blueberry Cream Cheese Cookies are perfect!

Ashton Baby Shower

I was so excited to hear that Ashton is having a boy.  Having two boys, I feel like I am a pro in the boy department.  They are so much fun!  I had to learn how to hunt for bugs, go to monster truck shows, and break a nail or two digging in the dirt.  Boys are so sweet and and I can’t wait to meet Ashton’s little bundle!

As I was thinking about what to make for Ashton, I thought blue.  And then it involved into something ‘blue’berry.  And blueberry just happens to be perfect for this time of year.  But have you ever had a blueberry in a cookie?!  Whoa.  like whoa.  These tasted like a blueberry muffin and a cookie had a baby.  Ha.


The cookie base was perfection.  Soft, puffy, and chewy and the cream cheese inside was awesome.  The blueberries just burst inside your mouth with every bite and kept the cookies moist and soft.

I couldn’t stop eating them they were so good.  But the added lemon glaze on top was the perfect finishing touch to these cookies.  Lemon and blueberry go so well together and the hint of lemon was so refreshing.

These cookies are soft and chewy and absolutely perfect.  I know that you are going to love them too!

Peanut Butter Cup Fruit Dip


  1. These cookies are just what I needed – I am in a blueberry haze these days!! Must try them ASAP 🙂
    Have a nice weekend!!

  2. love the combination of blueberry and lemon, and berries in cookies make them almost healthy right 🙂

  3. These look absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious!! Brilliance!!! And thank you so much for being a part of this shower, you guys are way too sweet! And I will definitely be hitting you up for boy-parenting advice– I still can’t believe it’s a boy! YIKES!

  4. Awwww I always love seeing virtual baby showers! Such a sweet idea! And these cookies… I wish I had one right now, they look amazing!

  5. You have totally convinced me to try cheesecake cookies!

  6. These look perfect! I love the addition of cream cheese- yum! I can’t wait to try them.

  7. Alyssa – these are AWESOME. I love cream cheese cookies, great idea to add blueberries!

  8. Such pretty vibrant colors, what a great classic flavor combo for these fun cookies.

  9. Cookies meet muffin – that means I can have them for breakfast, right? 😉 These look amazing, Alyssa!

  10. What a fabulous sounding cookie! I love that you said these were like a muffin and a cookie had a baby! Sounds like my kind of cookie! Must add blueberries to cookies stat!!!

  11. Christina says:

    These look great. Thanks for the recipe. Will be on the lookout for blueberries at the Farmer’s Market tomorrow.

  12. Cynthia says:

    I just made these yesterday and although they are very yummy, they did not turn out very pretty… nothing like the pictures. I used fresh blueberries and as soon as I folded in the blueberries the dough started to turn purple. Thankfully the lemon glaze helped make them more attractive. What did you do to avoid purple cookies?

  13. Made these for our block party and they were a hit! Next time I think I will add either lemon zest or lemon juice to the cookie batter to bring out more of the lemon. Also, I used fresh blueberries and found them to be a bit challenging as they didn’t quite stick to the dough a burst a few times in my hand. Might go with frozen ones and see how that works next time.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. My husband LOVES blueberries & will eat anything with blueberries in it. We have a blueberry farm not far from our summer place. If you’ve never gone to pick them before, you’re missing a whole lot of fun. Not to mention how reasonable they are. You don’t even have to wash them to freeze for future use. Just put them in zip lock bags.

    THANKS for sharing.

  15. Looks really tasty and easy to make. Thanks for sharing.

  16. This recipe has way too much flour and too many blueberries.

  17. This recipe has too much flour and way too many blueberries.

  18. I agree with Mindy, way too many blueberries and flour. Dough so stiff no way to *gently* fold in blueberries. I didn’t use all of the dry mixture and still had problems.

  19. These cookies are amazing. I haven’t tried them with the glaze yet because I am out of powdered sugar. They are like a muffin cookie combo. Mmmmmm. They are challenging to make. The dough is very stiff, even though I cut the flour by 1/4 cup. I also used 1 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries instead of two. I gave up trying to fold in berries and instead dropped dough on the pan and pushed blueberries around it. Pain but totally worth it because they are good!

  20. I guess I should have read the reviews first. Agree with the comments saying way too much flour and berries. There is no way author could have folded the berries into the play-doh consistency batter. I ended up pushing the berries into the dropped dough before baking. This recipe will not be saved.

  21. When I made my glaze it was very thick and I had to add an extra tablespoon of lemon juice and milk to thin it out. What did I do wrong? The recipe looks like it’s 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar but is it supposed to be just 1/2 cup?

  22. Just made these cookies. I didn’t have lemons for the glaze so instead I added 2 cups of white chocolate chips. SO GOOD! This recipe is a keeper.

  23. The family looks at me with a side glance when I mention the word “bake” (that’s not a positive). Ending up in the freezer right from the oven was a wonderful thing to wake up to in the morning.

  24. I made these cookies and they were great. I tried them three times because I was also having trouble incorporating the blueberries into the thick batter. When I mixed the blueberries in by hand, they turned out perfect. Hope that helps. Well done Alyssa!
