Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here we go again with the lemon. I am not exactly sure why I'm on this lemon kick, but I really don't mind it because these cookies are amazing. We have our local Farmer's market every Sunday, and I was browsing and saw a vendor that had these cookies. I wasn't about to spend 5 bucks for a cookie so I decided then and there that I was going to make my own. This happens all the time, and I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about.

I also decided to make these last minute before a friend left on a road trip. I thought it would be nice for her to take some to nibble with on the way there. She said she really loved them, so that made me happy. Jason, who is a very picky eater ate FOUR. Yep.. The man who doesn't like lemon, ate four lemon cookies. And these babies were super lemony. On this very day I also made very vanilla scones, that recipe will soon be up for your enjoyment!

Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 C unsalted butter, softened
1/2 C sugar
1/4 C light brown sugar, packed
1 egg
4 TB fresh lemon juice
Zest of 1 lemon
1 1/4 C flour
1/4 TS salt
1/2 TS baking soda
1 C white chocolate chips
1 TS pure vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside. Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl, set aside. Add lemon juice, zest, vanilla, and egg to butter mixture. Mix until combined. Add the flour and mix thoroughly, Scraping bowl as needed. Fold in the white chocolate chips.

Using desired method, place balled dough onto prepared baking shit. I used a small ice cream scoop, I feel that's what works best and easiest for me when I am looking for all the cookies to be uniform size and shape. Do as you wish, just make sure you have fun!

Bake 10-13 minutes or until bottom/edges are lightly golden. If you're like me, you are a tough cookie (no pun intended) and your hands are use to the heat, so just lift one up, if not... Check it out with a spatula ;)

Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Then, you must eat them up before all your friends/family do. They are so yummy, cross my heart!

  1. Mmm, lemon and white chocolate are a superb match. Those cookies must have been some tasty little bites. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog till Monday night and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your cookies up.
