Everyone that knows me, knows that at the end of the day my favorite dessert is dun dun dun…the COOKIE! I was thisclose to having cookies instead of cake at my wedding, but opted to listen to the Moms and went with cake. Aaaaaaany way, I digress. So this cookie recipe is a new favorite from one of my favorite people. I found out recently that she got it from the cardboard on a new baking sheet…who knew those recipes would actually come in hand or um, be good??
I made these cookies for Easter this year and they were a big hit. Keep reading for the recipe!
And now that you’ve seen how good they look, you have to try them for yourself, don’t you?? Yep, you do. I highly recommend these. Good for a spring cookie exchange, baby shower, bridal shower or if you just want to eat the dough (not that I’m talking from experience or anything).
- 1 stick of butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice (I’ve added more, basically half of a lemon)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white chocolate chips (about half of a bag – I was tempted to put more in the first time I made these…don’t the amount is just right)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (again, I put more in but do this to your own taste)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, milk, lemon juice and vanilla, mix well. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add it to the butter mixture and mix well. Stir in the lemon zest and white chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until the edges start to brown. Move the cookies to a cooling rack and enjoy. It makes about 3 dozen cookies.
I’m not kidding about you enjoying these cookies – I have a whole crew of people who can attest to their goodness. If you try them, let me know how you like them.
P.S. After you’ve made these cookies and fell in love with them, you can thank my fave for the recipe by visiting her baking website and buying some of her tasty treats. They’re worth every penny: 1SweetTooth.com
