    • Cuisine: global


  • ¾ cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (100 grams) brown sugar
  • grated lemon zest from 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ⅔ cup (330 grams) all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled*
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1.5 cup (220 grams) fresh blueberries


  1. In a large bowl, cream the softened butter with the granulated sugar and brown sugar until smooth and fluffy.
  2. Mix in the lemon zest, lemon juice, eggs and vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until combined.
  4. Fold in the blueberries.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  7. Portion out 18 cookies and shape into balls (they will flatten as they cook). Place on the prepared baking sheets about 3 inches (8 cm) apart.
  8. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
  9. Allow the cookies to rest on the pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.


Measuring Flour: We highly recommend using a kitchen scale to measure flour. If measuring by volume, use the spoon and level method to avoid over-measuring the flour. Lightly spoon flour into the measuring cup until it’s completely full. Then run the back of a knife over the cup to gently scrape off any excess.

Storing: Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-4 days or in the fridge for up to a week. These cookies can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
