Blueberries and lemon are known to complement each other in terms of flavor. Blueberries bring a natural sweetness and tanginess, while lemon adds a citrusy note. When combined in a cookie, the resulting flavor can be a delicious blend of sweet and tart, creating a unique and refreshing taste. The soft and chewy texture of this lemon blueberry cookie offers a delightful addition to the flavor.

Tips on making the Lemon Blueberry Cookies recipe:


This is basic recipe for easy cookies with minimal ingredients:

  • All-purpose flour, baking soda, salt and granulated sugar
  • Unsalted butter and an egg: bring these ingredients to room temperature before starting the recipe.
  • Lemon: this recipe uses the juice and zest from a medium-sized lemon.
  • Blueberries: find the freshest and juiciest blueberries you can. Wash the blueberries and remove any stems before using.

Making the blueberry lemon cookies the same size:

A cookie scoop is a handy tool that helps you measure out the dough in consistent portions. Alternatively, use a measuring spoon or ice cream scoop to measure equal amounts of dough. Don't be concerned if some of the blueberries burst while scooping or baking - this adds to the appeal of the cookie!

How do I store these cookies?

Store the cookies in an airtight container to keep them fresh. If storing multiple layers of cookies in the same container, place a sheet of wax paper between the layers to prevent them from sticking together. Leave at room temperature for up to 3 days. Alternatively, wrap the cookies in plastic and place in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Can I make the Blueberry Lemon Cookies without the blueberries?

Certainly! This recipe makes a refreshing and zesty lemon cookie without the blueberries.

Can I use frozen blueberries in this recipe?

Yes, frozen blueberries are fine to use in this recipe. Defrost the blueberries, drain the juices and place on a paper towel to absorb any excess juice.

I hope you enjoy these lemon blueberry cookies as much as my friends and family do!

    Nnniiccceeee...cookies are an all-time friend of mine. It's good to know they can be stored for months. That way, I'll have a stash of them kept away for the months to come.

    This looks absolutely delicious, Stephanie! I will experiment with switching the all-purpose flour for almond flour, wish me luck! If that fails, I'm going to keep it as suggested. Lemon and blueberry are the most delicious combo!
