Soft Lemon Blueberry Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting


Super soft cake-like blueberry cookies are perfect for snacking at any time of day. Delicate and sweet, with a bright lemon flavor, and topped with a luscious cream cheese frosting. You won't be able to stop at one. These are the perfect spring and summer time dessert!




  • 1/2 Cup + 2 Tablespoons Butter - room temperature
  • 1 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Sour Cream
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • Zest and Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 2 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Fresh Blueberries 

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 Ounces Cream Cheese - room temperature
  • 1/4 Cup Butter - room temperature
  • 2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Salt
  • Zest and Juice from 1/2 Lemon



  1. Preheat the oven. Preheat to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar. In a stand mixer, mix the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy (for 3-4 minutes)
  3. Add in wet ingredients. Add in sour cream, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice, and zest. Mix until just combined (about 30 seconds).
  4. Add in dry ingredients. Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until combined. The dough will be quite sticky.
  5. Fold in blueberries. Remove the bowl from the mixer and add in the fresh blueberries. Gently fold in with a spatial until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  6. Bake. Scoop out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper using a cookie scoop. Bake for 14-15 minutes.
  7. Cool. Once finished, remove from oven and let cool on the sheet for 5 minutes, then move to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. Cream together butter and cream cheese. In a bowl add cream cheese and butter. Mix with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy and no lumps remain.
  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Add in the powdered sugar, vanilla, salt, and lemon zest, and juice. Mix well until smooth.
  3. Frost cookies. Spoon the over the slightly warm or cooled cookies and enjoy!


  • For the frosting: I have frosted the cookies about 5 minutes after they have come out of the oven and are still warm. The warmth from the cookies makes the frosting slightly melt and kind of turn into a glaze and it is HEAVENLY! I have also waited until the cookies have cooled to frost. I will just scoop a little out with a spoon and place it on top and then spread it out slightly to the edges. Both are great options and either can be done! 
  • Store leftovers covered tightly in the fridge for 4-5 days.
  • See the post for how to freeze or make them in advance.
