It appears I may have a bit of a blueberry obsession.

First there was blueberry banana bread. I washed that down with some blueberry mint lemonade. And way back when, there was the berry berry cinnamon swirl delight that kicked off the season.

I have always wanted to go somewhere to pick my own blueberries, but I might eat all of them before I could pay. Instead I just buy the huge containers of them when they are in season and eat them in everything, including dessert.

If you like blueberries as much as I do, you should totally try these cookies. They use just a little bit of lemon juice (no rind) and loads of fresh berries.

Oh, and the texture is just like muffin tops!

I did not set out to make muffin tops, but it was a happy surprise.

Some people buy special pans to create the fluffy tops without the whole muffin, but these cookies end up tasting that way without it.

Top of the muffin to you! (Any Seinfeld fans out there to tell me if I used the reference correctly?)

Summer is winding down here, and I'm going to miss all these fresh blueberries I've had in my kitchen.

Better make some of these while you still can!

Loved the taste! Couldn’t get my tops or edges to look brown. Any tips?

Heavy dull-aluminum cookie sheets help brown the cookies - oven temperatures also can vary widely so increasing the temperature by 25 degrees might help or adding a couple minutes of baking time.

These were yummy! I used frozen blueberries and so the cookies didn't come out very pretty, but they sure tasted good. Next time I make these I will use half a cup of sugar and 3 lemons instead of 2 (2 small lemons yielded about 5-6 tablespoons of juice). Thank you for this recipe, I'll be using it again!

These are great. One of my favorite cookies to make! Only thing I would change is that they arent quite as lemony as I would like so I add a tablespoon or so extra lemon juice. Otherwise awesome cookies!

Hi, I wanted to make these for a baby shower. Can they be made ahead and frozen?
