Out of all the cookie recipes that I have come up with, these Lemon Blueberry Cookies with Lemon Poppy Seed Glaze are on the top of my favorite list! I LOVE anything with lemon in it. Lemon recipes always do really well on my site. The lemon recipes are always some of the top viewed recipes.
Lemon and blueberry is a classic combination and with the lemon poppy seed glaze on top, these cookies are a huge hit with everybody who tries them.
When I first told my husband that I wanted to develop a recipe for Lemon Blueberry Cookies with white chocolate chips and a lemon poppy seed glaze, he looked at me puzzled and asked, “Why would you put all of those ingredients in one cookie“? I told him to just trust me.
As soon as I took the first batch out of the oven and glazed them, I took a cookie out to him while he was mowing the lawn. The first thing that came out of his mouth was “Mmm those are heavenly”!
If you can’t find the Ocean Spray Blueberry Juice Infused Craisins at your local grocery store, you can buy dried blueberries at Costco or Wal-Mart.
When making these cookies, I use a medium sized cookie scoop. This way all the cookies are the same size and they will all cook evenly. After I pull them out of the oven, I let them cool for about five minutes. Then I transfer them to a cookie rack. The cookie rack helps them to cool quicker and they won’t sweat on the hot pan.
