Lemon White Chocolate Sugar Cookies
Recipe type: Cookies
Total time: 
A perfect addition to your cookie repertoire!
  • 2¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a larger bowl, cream butter and sugar until very smooth. Add the egg, vanilla, lemon zest and lemon juice and beat well. Gradually blend in dry ingredients, alternating with cream, to create a moist dough. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls a couple inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet and slightly flatten the top of each cookie (the dough should be about ½" in diameter - they will spread more with cooking).
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly golden. Let stand two minutes before removing to rack to cool completely.
  6. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
Recipe barely adapted from Tara at The Butter Dish. Tara included a great tip with her recipe if you love that fresh-baked taste and smell (and who doesn't?!): If you're making more cookies than you can eat in 3 days, drop extra dough onto cookie sheet as directed, then freeze the disks. Once frozen, pop them in a Ziploc bag and, when ready to bake, thaw for an hour and cook as directed.
