Lemon Blueberry Cookies

Lemons and blueberries - a classic combination. You must use frozen blueberries to make this cookie work correctly. Keep them frozen until the last possible moment and when you crush them in the food processor, be careful not to make mush!


  • 3 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • all of the zest from 2 large lemons
  • 1/4 cup concentrated lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries


Cream the butter, sugar, and lemon zest. Add the lemon juice and vanilla and mix well. Crush the frozen blueberries in a food processor and mix them with the flour and baking soda in a large bowl. Then add them to the mixer and combine at low speed. Roll into balls 1" in diameter. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. Yields 4 dozen cookies.
