These puffy lemon blueberry cookies are so soft that they are almost like a cake. These cookies are similar to cutting off the top of a muffin and eating it, it would be extremely similar in taste and texture.
To top this delicious recipe off, you can even add a sweet glaze to drizzle all over them. Not only that, but this batter can also be used for pancake batter, so not only are these cookies good for snacks, they are amazing for breakfast too.
