Lemon White Chocolate Cookies

lemon white chocolate cookies

Another day, another lemon cookie recipe. What can I say? I love cookies and I love lemon. Given a choice between a chocolate dessert and a lemon dessert, I’d go with the lemon every time. But then again, why choose?

I found this recipe on Pinterest from the blog Lauren’s Latest. The cookies looked divine and perfect, but I couldn’t help wondering if they wouldn’t be even more delicious with the addition of some white chocolate chips. I’m happy to report that I did not steer myself astray. The result was a tart, sweet, crinkly cookie which is dainty enough for an afternoon tea but fun enough that the kids will eat it. Enjoy!

Lemon White Chocolate Cookies
Adapted from Lemon Crinkle Cookies

Makes 2-3 dozen cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a cookie sheet and set aside.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar until combined. Add in the vanilla, egg, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Beat until well mixed.
  3. Stir in the salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flour. Add the chocolate chips and stir just until evenly distributed.
  4. Take about a tablespoon of the dough and roll into a ball, then roll in the powdered sugar until covered. Repeat for the rest of the dough.
  5. Place cookies on the baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the edges are just starting to turn golden. Remove from the oven and onto a cooling rack immediately.
