Lemon and White Chocolate Chip Cookies

The smell of lemons is amazing! Have you noticed that the smell of the juice is totally different compared to the smell of the zest? So many layers to just one ingredient. I love how versatile lemons are. You can incorporate them in sweet and savoury dishes! These lemon white chocolate chip cookies were just beautiful. So light and soft, they were one of the best cookies that had come out of my kitchen this month. They will be for you too!

Preparation Time 15 minutes 

Cook Time 8-10 minutes 

Yields 22 cookies 


330 grams/ 2 cups and 5 tablespoons flour 

2 teaspoon corn flour 

1 teaspoon baking soda 

1/4 teaspoon salt 

200 grams/ 1 cup sugar 

1 egg - room temperature

150 grams/ 2/3 cup butter- softened 

60 ml/ 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 

3 teaspoons lemon zest 

130 grams white chocolate chips


  1. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and corn flour in a bowl. Mix well and set it aside. 

  2. Place the lemon zest and sugar in a mixing bowl. Rub well/ mix it in with a spatula to release the oils. 

  3. Add the butter and beat it for 3-4 minutes until light and creamy. 

  4. Add the egg and mix it through. Add the juice and the flour mixture. Once you add the juice the mixture will look curdled. That’s ok. Just add the flour mixture and mix it in. 

  5. Fold the chocolate chips into the cookie dough. 

  6. Chill the dough for 30 minutes 

  7. Preheat the oven to 170c. Scoop the dough onto lined baking sheets and bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes.
