Lemon Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies


How beautiful are these Lemon Blueberry Oatmeal cookies? Studded with plump blueberries and drizzled with a lemon glaze that give them just the right amount of sweet and tart. These cookies are soft and chewy, perfect with a cup of tea or for a sweet treat after a meal. I use frozen berries that we picked, but you can buy store bought berries. These cookies travel well and are the perfect reminder that spring and summer will soon be here.
Get your kids in the kitchen this is a recipe that they can either help with or do all on their own. I hope you all are having a wonderful week and as always, thank you for reading this little blog.
