Blueberry Lemon Cookies

We had such a great day together yesterday as a family.  We watch LDS general conference together and enjoyed the nice sunny day.  It was so warm that we took a walk and we were actually getting hot!  I love that the warmer weather is coming.

We made this Blueberry Lemon Cookies this weekend and they were such a hit.  Honestly these are easily one of the best cookies that I have made!

As you already know I am such a huge fan of lemon.  But I am an even bigger fan of the lemon blueberry combination!   These cookies have a soft cake like texture to them and fresh blueberries bursting in every bite.  But one of the best parts is the delicious lemon cream cheese frosting on top!

You guys have GOT to make these cookies!  You won’t be able to stop at just one.  These cookies are little bites of blueberry and lemon heaven and you are going to love them just as much as we did!

    Looks yummy!! If I try these with frozen blueberries, do I thaw them first? I know for pies you use them frozen, but I have no idea for cookies. Thanks!

  3. Kathy Mader says:

    Hi Alyssa. These cookies look delightful. My suggestion is I would love a picture of a cookie broken open so we could see the inside texture/crumb (or at least for future recipes). Thank you so much and keep the delish recipes coming!
