Lemon White Chunk Cookies

The combination of flavors in these lemon white chunk cookies is delicious!

Lemon White Chunk Cookies

I think you know by now how I feel about lemons – I love them!  You may have also picked up on the fact that I love white chocolate too and my favorite all time cookie is a chocolate chip cookie – today’s recipe is a twist on the traditional chocolate chip cookie – combining three of my favorite things – lemon, white chocolate and chocolate chip cookies!

The combination of lemon and white chocolate is one I had not tried before – but it did not disappoint.  The lemon in this cookie recipe is subtle but it’s there.

I found this recipe on a fun blog I visit on a regular basis – Cookie Madness

I hope you enjoy these as much as my family did.  After eating one,  my sweet husband came up to my office and said, “These are really good!”

Try them and let me know what you think.  Happy cookie baking!

PS – this dough has to be refrigerated so allow yourself some time.

      Yes, add it in with the vanilla. A stick of butter is the same as a cube which is also 1/2 cup. If you use salted butter you can just cut the down on the other salt in the recipe.
