Blueberry Cookies with Lemon Frosting

Goodbye winter, hello spring! While I love winter, the thoughts of warmer temperatures and flowers overrode my love for winter. On one hand, we get the warm weather. On the other, we get rain. Today, it’s been raining non stop, making it the most perfect day to stay dry and bake some delicious cookies!

With spring in our midst, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to create cookies with some of my warm weather favorites. These cookies are light, lemony sweet, and filled with succulent blueberries- a perfect way to escape the rainy weather! This recipe definitely goes on my top five list for sure. I baked these up with my twin sister. Surprisingly, it was a ton of fun. I highly suggest baking these, or any cookie, with a friend or family member!

  2. Holy cow! Lemon anything is my weakness, so I think I’m going to have to make these soon! I think these would be so great to make for a summer get together because they are so fast and sound pretty simple to make! Have you tried making these cookies with any other fruit besides blueberries? i think they might be really good with strawberry puree!!
