Lemon and blueberry are a dream team flavor combo in these Lemon Sugar Cookie Bars with Blueberry Buttercream Frosting!
I think I’m obsessed with lemon and blueberry together! Are you the same way? I made these Lemon Blueberry Crumb Bars a few years back and they are absolutely heavenly! So then of course I couldn’t stop at that!
Frosted sugar cookies always get me. And by that I mean I just look at them and I basically say goodbye to any self control I thought I had. I was looking through some of my most favorite dessert recipes here on the blog and I came across these Strawberry Banana Cream Pie Bars. The sugar cookie base is perfection! So I thought, why not add a yummy hint of lemon to it and then top it with blueberry buttercream frosting?
You are going to go crazy for these! I certainly did!
I’ve made at least twenty different varieties of buttercream frosting in my life, but this just might be my new favorite, next to chocolate, of course. 🙂 You’ll puree some fresh blueberries, then cream that together with some softened butter and powdered sugar. That’s it! Three simple ingredients gets you the most unbelievable, finger-licking incredible frosting!
Just make sure you don’t over-bake the lemon sugar cookie bars. The key to a deliciously soft sugar cookie is baking it to perfection! One or two minutes can make the difference between a soft cookie bar and one that’s dry and crunchy. I always set my oven timer for a few minutes less than what’s called for in the recipe and then check it every minute until it’s done to prevent burning. You’ll want them to look like they’ve set up, but you don’t want to see the edges browning.
These bars are lemon and blueberry bliss! Your summer BBQ’s and potlucks need them! This recipe makes a big panful, so it’s perfect for feeding a crowd!
Are you a fan of the lemon and blueberry combo? If so, you’ve gotta try these! I’d love to hear what you think about them!
