Lemon Blueberry Cookies

Happy weekend everyone! Today was the first day of March Break for my kids. Nothing interesting happening so far, just relaxing a bit at home. It is still snowing and cold, just a little jealous of those heading somewhere south;)

Having some kind of snack around while the kids are at at home this week is always a good idea. I was craving something with lemon flavor and why not add some blueberries. These cookies are so delicious, soft, lemony…

Sweetened with honey and I used white spelt flour.

Lemon Blueberry Cookies 

Yields: 34 large cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups unsalted butter, soft
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 organic lemons, zest and juice
  • 2 x 3/4 cups honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 cups white spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2 cups blueberries, frozen or fresh

-In a large bowl mix together the butter, eggs, lemon juice and zest, honey and vanilla extract.

-Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, mix well. Gently fold in the frozen or fresh blueberries. Let dough chill in refrigerator for 1 hour or longer.

-Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

-Using a tablespoon, place rounded balls of dough, leaving some space in between cookies, on prepared cookie sheets.

-Bake for 10-15 minutes or until slightly golden brown.

Tip: This recipe makes a lot of cookies, you can easily divide it by two. Also feel free to make smaller sized cookies. I brushed the baked cookies with a mix of lemon juice and honey.
