Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pies

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 large egg, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1-1/4 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup buttermilk

1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

2 teaspoons grated lemon zest


1/4 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup cream cheese, softened

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk 1-1/4 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, toss blueberries and lemon zest with remaining 1 Tbsp. flour; gently fold into dough.

Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake until edges just begin to brown, 10-12 minutes. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

For filling, in a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until blended. Beat in honey, lemon zest and vanilla. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Spread on bottoms of half the cookies; cover with remaining cookies. Refrigerate in an airtight container.
