Oh these cookies are a work of art the flavor of the lemon and the raspberry together is absolutely perfect. You made these cookies so soft and we have to talk about how beautiful the colors are together.Totally yumminess. Thank you
This recipe has been one of my sons favorite. I substituted the blackberry for raspberry and they came out perfect. Definitely preferred them chilled as well. Chahinez never disappoints with her craft ♥️
YAY! Thank you so much!
I’m going to attempt to make a low carb version of this. I can’t have more than 9 grams of sugar per serving.
Let us know how that works out!
I made 6 of these to share amongst my family and they were divine! The cookies were chewy and lemony, and the tartness of the cream cheese buttercream mixed with the sweetness of the blackberry jelly perfectly. Everyone ate theirs in a sitting and they were so good that they were worthy of a fork! Honestly, I think this is the best crumbl recipe I have tried by far!!
Awh, this is amazing Alice! Thank you!
The recipe lists poppy seeds but I don’t see any poppy seeds in the cookies. Will you please confirm?
The poppyseeds are optional. Crumbl had them in their cookie so you can add them in the cookie dough to get something more similar or you can omit them to get something like the images from this blog post.
really nice post. thanks for sharing beautiful content.
