Lemon White Chocolate Cookies

Lemon screams summertime to me. I think it is because summertime was the only time of the year that we had lemonade growing up. It was always on a super hot day after we had been working outside.

There aren’t many things more refreshing than a glass of Mint Lemonade or Honey Peach Lemonade in the middle of a warm afternoon.

Such sweet memories of those days full of sun and hard work. Although at the time I am not sure I had such fond memories of the hard work part.

So with summertime and summer fruit flavors on my mind, I took my basic cookie recipe and brightened it up for summer.

White Chocolate really is the perfect complement to lemon. The tart citrus of lemon works so well with the rich creaminess of white chocolate. I did a white chocolate drizzle on top for fun, but feel free to skip this step if you’d like to keep it simpler.

  2. In a separate bowl combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture. When combined add white chocolate chips.
  3. Form into balls about an inch or slightly more in diameter. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place cookies on baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes until edges are lightly brown. Remove from the oven and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.

Lemon Desserts

Lemon ranks high on my list for summer flavors. It is light, tangy, and not too sweet.

This creamy, tangy No Bake Lemon Cheesecake with a graham cracker crust is smooth and bursting with lemon flavor, a bright and refreshing dessert for lemon lovers.

Juicy blueberries and fresh lemon are baked inside buttery sweet yeast rolls to make these Blueberry Sweet Rolls

Bright, fresh Lemon Crinkle Cookies have been a favorite cookie for as long as I can remember. They’re light, lemony sweet cookies that keep well for several days.

    I made these cookies this week for Christmas, and while they are incredibly delicious, they don’t look like the photo. They spread out, and have crispy edges. That being said, out of the five different cookies I have made thus far, these are my favourite! Thanks for the recipe.
