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!
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!
