Servings 30 cookies



  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ½ teaspoon lemon extract
  • cups all purpose flour (measure, then sift)
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup fresh (smaller sized) blueberries (washed, dried and stems removed)


  • ½ cup powdered sugar (measure, then sift)
  • 1 to 1½ tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice



  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the sugar and butter. Beat in the egg and lemon extract.
  • Gradually add flour, alternating with milk addition.
  • Carefully stir in the blueberries and drop the batter 1½-inches apart on greased cookie sheet, silpat-mat or parchment lined baking sheet. I use a cookie dough scoop.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes.


  • Let the cookies cool completely. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice. Drizzle each cookie with a little bit of the lemon glaze. The glaze will set when it has a chance to dry.
