Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Cookies lemon and blueberry combination make these cookies irresistible. They are simple, quick and easy to make. My husband loves them.
Summer is nearly here, it is slowly entering our homes, especially kitchens where we prepare light, delicious, summer meals and desserts. Markets and supermarkets offer a variety of fresh, delicious summer fruit, blueberries, as well.
They are very healthy, especially eaten fresh. You can put them in various treats, too. I like to eat them all year long and you can always find some frozen blueberries in my freezer. Warm and sunny summer days invite us to spend more time outside, in the countryside.
Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Cookies can be a part of your picnic basket and you can enjoy it while relaxing somewhere outdoors. Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Cookies can be easily made for breakfast, snack or a dessert. Lemon and blueberry combination is fantastic and these cookies are perfect for all those who like this combination.
Whenever I want to surprise my husband I prepare this treat, because he loves it. My love for cookies has started with Holiday Maraschino Cherry Shortbread Cookies, continued with Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies and Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chip and Pecans.
This time, I ‘vet decided to share this recipe with you. I‘m sure you‘ll love it. Use fresh blueberries to make these light, quick and easy to make cookies and enjoy their unique taste. Happy baking.
