This recipe has been on my mind for the last few weeks. Once I finished tweaking the Cranberry White Chocolate Chip cookie recipe, I started thinking about what other flavors I could infuse into a cookie.
Blueberry and Lemon are such a classic combination, I knew I had to try that combination next. I also wanted to incorporate poppy seeds into the cookie somehow but I was worried that it would get a little lost in the cookie itself with all the other ingredients. So I came up with the lemon poppy seed glaze and it was the perfect touch to these cookies.
The glaze takes the cookie flavor to a whole new level.
If you want a more subtle mellow flavor, you can serve the cookie without the glaze. Either way, I am thrilled with how these cookies turned out!
When I first told my husband that I wanted to develop a recipe for these cookies, he looked at me puzzled and asked “Why would you put all of those ingredients in one cookie“? I told him to just trust me!
As soon as I took the first batch came out of the oven and I glazed them, I took one out to him while he was mowing the lawn. The first thing that came out of his mouth was “Mmm those are heavenly”!
These cookies are such happy and cheery cookies. Maybe it is the lemon in them. I really don’t think you can eat one without a smile on your face.
Until next time,
