I love lemon so much so that I will cram it into both my savory and sweet dishes as often as humanly possible. Even in situations where it ought to not be possible, but what is a girl to do – sometimes the temptation is just way too strong.
With these cookies it not only belongs, but is such a welcome variation on the ‘usual’ cookie. To be honest I was not sure if I would like the lemon+brown sugar+white chocolate combination. However, the flavorful zest adds a brightness to the depth of the brown sugar and white chocolate adds the perfect amount of sweetness to offset the tanginess of the zest.
The original recipe is from the delicious looking Pretty.Simple.Sweet. I have to thank Shiran for the genius addition of cornstarch. It definitely helped extend the cookies ‘life’ i.e. the cookies stayed softer for far longer than most. Also, check it out, she seems to have found the prettiest white chocolate chips ever.
These cookies would be the perfect topper for a summer time picnic, but are equally lovely as an afternoon snack with some cold milk. In short, they’re yummy all the time 😉
