Lemon blueberry cookies – fresh blueberries and a light lemon flavor in a cookie that tastes like a muffin top!
It appears I may have a bit of a blueberry obsession.
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!
