  • ½ cup butter softened
  • cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar extra for dusting the cookies
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 & ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds Optional (the crumbl one had them in the cookie dough but I forgot to add them in in the photo)

Blackberry frosting

  • 3 oz cream cheese softened
  • 3 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon blackberries fresh, mashed, and strained in a sieve to remove the seeds
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup blackberry jam homemade or store-bought


Make the lemon cookie base

  • Preheat the oven to 350F then line a baking sheet with parchement paper and set it aside.
  • Cream the butter, granulated sugar, and powdered sugar together until smooth and creamy.
  • Whisk in the egg, the lemon juice, lemon zest, and the lemon extract and mix until combined.
  • Mix in the flour, baking powder, and salt (mix in the poppy seeds now if you’re adding them) until the flour mixture disappears. Don't overmix your dough. Then using a large cookie scooper (4tbsp/1/4cup) scoop out 6 equally sized cookie dough balls, and place them on the prepared baking sheet and gently flatten them to about ½ inch in thickness.
  • Bake the cookies in the oven for 11 minutes, then let them cool down on the baking sheet for 10-15 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool down fully.
  • Once fully cooled, frost with the blackberry frosting and add a dollop of blackberry jam on top.

Make the blackberry frosting
