I've always loved blueberries but the marriage between Lemon and Blueberries is as good as Peanut Butter and Jelly! So let's dive in and get making some Lemon Zest cookies!
Dry Ingredients. All Purpose flour, Granulated Sugar, Powdered Sugar, Cream of Tartar, Baking Soda
Liquids. Egg, Vegetable Oil, Vanilla Extract, Lemon Juice
Butter, Lemon Zest
Fruit. Fresh Blueberries
- Large Mixing Bowl
- Cookie Scoop
- Measuring Cups
- Measuring Spoons
- Hand Mixer
- Baking Sheet
- Cooling Rack
- Parchment Paper
I always recommend measuring dry ingredients by weighing them. This is the most accurate way when it comes to measuring ingredients. Using a quality kitchen scale makes all the difference in my kitchen and I hope you will invest in one too.
I love knowing my cookies will always turn out perfect because my ingredients are a perfect weight every time.
How to make Blueberry Lemonade Cookie
In a large mixing bowl cream softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy scraping sides of the bowl as needed. Add egg and powdered sugar and continue mixing. Gradually add vegetable oil a little at a time making sure it's fully combined before adding more.
Using a separate bowl combine dry ingredients of All Purpose Flour, Baking Soda, and Cream of Tartar and stir to combine.
Add about ½ of the dry ingredients making sure they fully combine with butter mixture. Then add freshly squeezed lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla extract to cookie dough.
Add remaining dry ingredients until combined. Dough will soft. Hand stir in fresh blueberries.
Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake in a preheat oven to 350 degree for 7-9 minutes until edges are just barely golden and centers are set. There is no need to chill the dough
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for a minute or two before removing cookies to a rack to cool completely.
To make a Lemon glaze, combine powdered sugar with butter and add lemon juice and zest. Glaze should be thin and easily drizzle on cooled cookies.
Fresh Lemon Juice is always best and will produce delicious lemon flavor. Bottled Lemon Juice can be used in this recipe if needed.a Rafflecopter giveaway
In this recipe I used Rodelle Vanilla Extract and I truly loved the rich flavor Rodelle Extract added to one of my favorite cookie recipes.
I'm excited to try it in future recipes as I found this extract to be excellent quality.
I have to say that I was very excited that Latourangelle is a sponsors for Lemon Week. I've used their sprays before and have loved them. In this recipe I sprayed the cookie sheet with Latourangelle Baking Spray. A light coating is all you need for these blue berry cookies to slide off the baking sheet.

My stomach actually rumbled when I looked at these photos. These cookies look to die for.
Oh they are wonderful!
Totally glad the glaze is on the cookies because I was having a hard deciding which I loved more, the cookies or the glaze!
Both! You need both!
Love these lemon blueberry cookies and the icing on top! Perfect dessert treat for summer 🙂
Like my favorite lemon blueberry cake but in bite-size cookie form! I'm heading to the store now for supplies! I know they will be great!
Yum, it's a muffin in cookie form, fantastic idea!
It really is sort of like a muffin in a cookie, but BETTER!

SO GOOD. It's hard for me to turn down a lemon blueberry recipe, so I knew I had to make these as soon as I saw them! These were really delish. Thanks for the recipe!
I'm so glad you loved them. They are so soft and I love the drizzle on top! Mmmm
Lemon and blueberry pair so well together. These cookies are on my to make list!
I have to agree. And these cookies are so soft and yummy too!
The berries look so plump and juicy! Perfect for a summer cookie.
I have always loved how the lemon and blueberry flavors compliment each other. Perfect cookies for our family reunion in July!
Thanks Nan! I hope your reunion loves these!
This is a favorite flavor combo of mine too!
omg! These are bites of heaven! I love the lemon and blueberry combo and that drizzle sound fantastic!
These cookies were amazing! But, they were almost too soft. The longer they sat, the worse it got. Any suggestions? (This didn’t stop me from using a fork 🤣)
Hi Alyssa, I'm so glad you loved these cookies, they really are so good! My suggestion is to maybe bake an extra minute next time. I have always been able to pick these up and enjoy with my hands. So it sounds to me like the cookie needed just a tiny bit longer baking. Regardless, with the icing, they are a soft cookie.
