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 πŸ™‚ Β 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.Β The pudding adds such a great texture. Give these babies a try, you won’t be disappointed!
