Lemon Cookies

Lemon Cookies

Lemon cookies are some of our very favorite cookies to make! My oldest son is a lemon dessert kind of boy. We were in the mood to make cookies a few nights ago and he said, “Mom, let’s make some lemon cookies!” He didn’t have to twist my arm 🙂  We created these perfectly delicious lemon chip cookies with lemon curd as the secret ingredient. Just enough tart and just enough sweet with the white chocolate chips. The pudding adds such a great texture. Give these babies a try, you won’t be disappointed!

    When you say two sticks of butter do you mean half a cup? Or two full blocks of butter?

      Jenny says:

      One stick of butter equals 1/2 cup, so two sticks will be 1 cup. Let me know if you have any other questions 🙂
