Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these a couple years ago before I had a blog. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to make them again! I love everything lemon and these are so perfect for summer. Well, really anytime, but holy delicious they are so good. They are soft and light and the white chocolate chips really take them to another level. So let’s get started!

What you will need:

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Zest from 2 lemons
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cornstarch and salt. Set aside. In another large bowl (or bowl of your electric mixer), beat butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg, both extracts and lemon zest and beat until combined. Slowly add in flour mixture until combined. Stir in what chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough for at least 15 minutes.

Drop cookie dough by spoonfuls on prepared cookie sheet and bake for 10 or 11 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
