Blueberry Cream Cheese Cookies – Great Britain
Blueberry Cream Cheese Cookies have a distinct cheesecake taste but in the form of cookies. Rumored to be of British origin before spreading to North America, blueberry cheesecakes give all the tangy richness you expect in a snack. Made with cream cheese, sitting at room temperature, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, fresh lemon juice, eggs, flour, baking soda, salt, and of course, fresh blueberries, this cookie is the perfect blend of natural fruits and baking.
Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies are so soft and tender and are usually filled with blueberries, a hint of lemon, and topped with a cream cheese glaze to make a perfect cookie. Lemon is important in these types of cookies because it adds the acid necessary to balance out the sweetness of the berries, while the zest imparts the true lemon flavor.
