Blueberry Lime Cookies



Sweet, tangy and soft wild blueberry and lime cookies with a thick sweet and tangy lemon-lime glaze.
 
The flavor of these soft cookies are inspired by a cocktail. Who doesn't like blueberry and lime together?
They are a flavor and texture bomb that are sweet, tangy, soft and creamy.
These cookies are like the ones that you get at the supermarket that are super soft and a slap of buttercream. This cookie doesn't have that much buttercream.

I don't believe I have seen this flavor at the market. I don't know why because they are perfect for the summer.
The cookies are refreshing from the brightness of the blueberries and the lemon-lime glaze.

  1. I love key lime pie so any sweet treat with lime always attracts my attention. Adding blueberries makes this sound irresistible (not to mention the lemon-lime glaze). I have everything in my pantry except for the limes. I'm going to add that to my shopping list.
