Treat yourself to my Springtime White Chocolate Lemon Pudding Cookies! You’ll be glad you did 🙂

White Chocolate Lemon Pudding Cookies

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?
