Lemon 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!

    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!

    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.

    Ok, just made a batch of these cookies and they are incredible! Thanks so much for sharing! My husband is going to LOVE these, as lemon is one of his favorite flavors. Simple and tasty, great combination!
