Summer is fast approaching and you know what that means right?… a beautiful array of fruits finally come into season and you best believe I’ll be taking full advantage of that this year!
You guys will know by now what I’m like for my dreamy combinations of ingredients and I think you’ll also know my love for the blueberry & lemon combination!
I did a fair few recipes last year including both blueberries and lemon BUT one thing I didn’t do was add them into a cookie. I mean, how could I not of done that? Quite frankly I’m disappointed in myself. You all know how much we blooming love a cookie in this household so adding my favourite combination of fruit into them was a must!
And boy was I right, I just knew the blueberries and lemon would work beautifully together to make the yummiest, fruity cookies!
These cookies are soft, sharp, chewy yet melt in your mouth and are packed full of flavour. I think these might be up there with one of my favourite cookies I’ve ever done (bold statement, I know!).
So if you’d like to get making these yourself, the recipe is below…
