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 ๐Ÿ™‚  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!

    These look amazing! You don’t mention the pudding mix in the actual recipe though…do you use the whole box?

  2. And now all I want for breakfast is cookies! These look awesome Jenny! Love that there is lemon – I can not get enough lemon right now! Also your green kitchenaid is my favorite! Totally wish I had that color ๐Ÿ™‚ Pinning!

    I cannot find lemon curd anywhere. I had this problem with another recipe. And we do not live near any specialty shops or near a big city so that is not an option, can I substitute anything else?

    1. Hi Karen, do you have any access to lemon essential oils? A few drops of that would work, or you could add 2 tablespoons lemon zest. Hope this helps!!

    Made these for Easter – they were a huge hit – everyone loved them! And I have now discovered lemon curd – I think I may be eating that straight from the jar – it’s delicious!

    These sound yummy! I also can’t find lemon curd. Since its a half cup it’s not going to hurt the end product if it’s omitted? Also I don’t see where the pudding is added into the dough??? I can’t wait to make these.

  6. Josefina

    I live in Argentina and we don’t have lemon curd, so would the lemon taste differ much more if I don’t add it? or I would just be ruining the cookies?

  7. I wish I lived with someone who craves sweets! My husband is always in the mood for veggies (ugh) and not much else. Perhaps I should produce some children so I can have someone to bake with. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And there’s lemon curd in these cookies?! I want, I want!

    I made this today for an afternoon pool party. They are so yummy I am not sure they will make it. Thanks for another great recipe!

    hi these cookies look sooo tasty.
    Question is i came from asia country and we dont have jello and lemon curd here ๐Ÿ™
    can I substitute jello with normal pudding powder and lemon curd with maybe lemon jam or lemon zest and maybe add some grated lemon peel?
    thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. These were easy prep, made a whole bunch of cookies, and they were pretty yummy. For me, not really enough LEMON, though. I added a little lemon juice and another dab of lemon curd after the first couple of batches came out. Next time I will try Lemon Pudding instead of Vanilla.

    Oh, btw, the Lemon Pudding is in the ingredients list but not in the steps as to when to add – I assumed with the flour.

    Will definitely make them again!

    These cookies are so so so good! Did anybody else notice she forgot to put in “directions” the pudding? Well, I always just put it in with the flower and stuff (not sifted, I just add it at the same time) and It turns out great! Try ’em! SO SO GOOD!
