White Chocolate Lemon Pudding Cookies

You are in for a delicious treat with my 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!

    Hi! My 5-year-old daughter and I made these together this afternoon. They are a hit! I love the lemon flavor and texture of the cookie. They also made my house smell AMAZING today. I *almost* threw some blueberries in a batch to see how that would work, but I decided against it. Any thoughts on that? I think the flavor would work, but I am worried about adding the extra moisture.

    I have made these 4-5 times and I can’t decide which of your recipes I like better- these or the perfect M&M cookies! These are the perfect dessert when I’m craving something sweet without the heaviness of chocolate. These manage to (obviously) be rich, but remain light and satisfying. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe!
