Ahhh spring is in the air.

Just kidding, it has been raining here just about every day for what seems like a month! I am so jealous of the people that already have their gardens planted, and are enjoy evening outside with a glass of wine.


Meanwhile, I am over here in jeans, and a hoodie, drinking coffee and freezing my rear off!
HURRY UP SPRING!!

My patience is wearing thin.

Of course, the upcoming move has me pretty busy.

Well, let's rewind a bit shall we?

If you remember back to the last time I talked about the move, I told you that we had squatters in our house.


Ya so they took their sweet time moving out, and the result is that, instead of moving last Thursday and Friday, we are moving this week.

Luckily Kevin can take some time off from work, so we have the next 4 days to get that place clean, don't even get me started on what a mess they left, and comfortably move in.

I just want to goooooooooooooooo!

I am tired of packing, I am tired of waiting.

I haven't gone grocery shopping since last Tuesday because we didn't want to have a bunch of food to move. Which means we have been either eating out or picking up take out.


I don't mind that once in a while but

A) I love cooking and
B) my butt doesn't need any more help in the expanding department thank you very much!!

However, if I am going to be eating calories, I would MUCH rather it be these cookies than take-out food any day!

I know y'all might be thinking, "But she doesn't bake".

Fear, not my foodie friends, I think I maybe overcoming my challenge.

Maybe.


Especially when it comes to something that is as easy as these cookies.

They are suuuuuuuuuuuuuuper simple to make and actually are a small batch.

I don't know about you but, unless it is the holidays, I don't want to make 6 dozen cookies. This recipe gives you a comfortable 2 dozen.

Also, they taste amazeballs! Every single person that tried one went back for another.

I even had a friend ask me if I would ship him some!!

Ummm no.

Perfect, creamy little bites of blueberry cheesecake like heaven drizzled with a luscious lemon glaze. These cookies are easy to make and sure to please!
prep time: 40 minscook time: 15 minstotal time: 55 mins

ingredients:


  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened 
  • 8 tablespoons butter, room temperature 
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 cup flour 
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (can use frozen, thawed berries) * see Cook's notes 
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced 
  • 1 1/2 cup to 2 cups powdered sugar (to get the glaze to your desired consistency)

instructions


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, blend cream cheese, butter, and sugar until fully combined.
  3. Add the flour to cream cheese mixture and stir until fully combined. 
  4. Add the blueberries. *see Cook's notes 
  5. Once the cheesecake batter is fully mixed, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, or until batter is firm to touch.
  6. Using a small cookie scoop, place cookie batter on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  7. Using your fingers, press down on the dough balls to help form cookies. 
  8. Bake 12-15 minutes or until cookies turn golden brown on the bottom.
  9. Place cookies on a cooling rack and rest for at least 5 minutes. 
  10. Meanwhile, combine the lemon juice, zest, and powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  11. Drizzle cooled cookies with lemon glaze.

NOTES:

1 - If using frozen berries, toss them with a couple tablespoons of flour if you don't want the color to bleed. 
2 - Gently fold the blueberries in if you don't want them to bleed. I like the blueberry color so I used a mixer.

    It's lunchtime, and instead of good food, I really want some of these cookies. Blueberries and lemon are such a great flavor combo. These look sooo good.

    1. I use gluten-free AP flour in place of regular flour with no problem. It is different if you start using almond flour or coconut flour.

  13. These look delish! Can you make these the night before an event? If so, should they be stored in the fridge?

  14. These look tasty but the Baker in me is screing that there's no leavening ingredient in these. Are these dense?

    1. They are more like a fluffier cheesecake in texture, if that makes sense. I guess you could say they are dense.
