Blueberry Lemon Cookies

It’s Summer time!

Figured I would start the summer off with a fruity recipe!

The nice warm weather has me craving desserts that are sweet and refreshing! These scrumptious cookies are just that! Each bite has a subtle taste of lemon with a punch of blueberry thats tart and sweet.

These cookies are super easy to make! It’s hard to fold blueberries into a thick cookie dough without mashing them. I recommend pressing in 3-5 blueberries separately into each cookie.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks of cold butter (1 cup)
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Cut/Cube the cold butter and place in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a different large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Zest and juice 2 lemons, place the zest and juice separately into 2 small bowls/ramekins. Set aside.
  5. Add the sugar to the butter and beat for 3-4 minutes. Since, the butter is cold, start your mixture on low speed and gradually speed up to medium speed (or else you’ll have sugar flying everywhere).
  6. Beat in the eggs, vanilla, lemon juice and zest.
  7. Using a rubber spatula, mix in the flour mixture, about 1 cup at a time.
  8. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scoop 8 cookie dough globs on a sheet at a time. Bake each sheet of cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges start to become golden brown.
