The combination of flavors in these lemon white chocolate chip cookies is delicious! Three of my favorite things all in one place.
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. I’ve lost track of how many different chocolate chip cookie recipes I have here on the blog. I even shared a new one last week!
Today’s recipe for Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies combines all three of my favorite things – lemon, white chocolate and chocolate chip cookies! The combination is definitely a winner.
The combination of lemon and white chocolate is one I have combined one other times. This White Chocolate Lemon Cheesecake is delicious. It worked in the cheesecake so I was pretty sure it would work in cookie form too. The lemon in this cookie recipe is subtle but it’s there. People get a nice surprise when they bite into this cookie, not expecting the subtle lemon flavor.
I always judge a cookie by how many I manage to eat when they are fresh out of the oven – this one gets a three cookie rating! Bet you can’t eat just one! After eating one, my sweet husband came up to my office and said, “These are really good!”
When the mood for a chocolate chip cookie, some lemon and white chocolate strike all at the same time, I’ve got you covered with these lemon white chocolate chip cookies.

Some of my favorite kitchen tools I use to make Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies:
PARCHMENT PAPER SHEETS – These precut sheets of parchment paper are a total time saver in the kitchen.
COOKIE SCOOP – I have these in several different sizes but this is the one I use the most and is the perfect size for cookies.
SMALL COOKIE SCOOP – This scoops out 1 Tbsp of dough and is perfect for bite size cookies or cookies that spread a lot.
