These light and refreshing Blueberry Lemon cookies are a springtime delight, infused with bright fresh lemon flavor, sweet blueberries and tangy cream cheese filling.
Blueberry Lemon Cookies are simply delightful, bursting with bright flavors and exactly what I needed!
I am so done with this weather! One day it’s in the 80’s, the next day we’re under a freeze watch and somewhere in-between there’s a tornado warning. Yep, welcome to Oklahoma my friends. In all reality, I’ve grown to love living here but on days when it’s cold, rainy & windy, all I really want is to be somewhere warm and tropical and since that wasn’t happening, I decided to make these sunshine inspired cookies to cheer me up.
You need to make these blueberry lemon cookies at least once this spring or summer, especially while all the fresh blueberries are in season. It’s so bright and refreshing and it just screams happiness, even when the weather outside is yucky. The cookies are so soft and moist, kind of like a lemony cookie-cake that’s loaded with sweet blueberries. And just to kick it up a notch, tucked away inside each cookie is a tangy bit of vegan cream cheese heaven which complements the sweetness perfectly. There’s just so much deliciousness tucked into every bite!
Blueberry Lemon Cookies are free from:
- wheat and gluten
- peanut-nut & tree-nut free (no coconut either)
- animal products (everything is Vegan)
- corn products
- can also be soy-free if using Daiya cream cheese
And do you know what that means? It means there’s room for extra blueberries and lemons….YAY!!!
Try making these Blueberry Lemon Cookies next time you need a little sunshine in your life! Or even better, make these for someone special (Mother’s Day is around the corner!) and brighten up their day as well.
