How To Make Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 24 minutes
Total: 44 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 1⅔cupall-purpose flour
  • ½tspbaking soda
  • ¼tspsalt,heaping
  • tspcornstarch
  • ¾cupunsalted butter,softened
  • ½cupgranulated sugar
  • cuplight-brown sugar,packed
  • tbsplemon zest,from about 3 medium lemons
  • 1egg,large
  • 1tsplemon extract
  • ½tspvanilla extract
  • 1⅓cupswhite chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cornstarch for 20 seconds, set aside.

  2. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and lemon zest (not until pale and fluffy, just creamy).

  3. Mix in egg, then mix in lemon extract and vanilla extract (if you want the cookies a little more yellow, you can add a few drops of yellow food coloring when adding the extracts).

  4. With mixer set on low speed slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until combined, then mix in white chocolate chips.

  5. Scoop dough out 2½ tablespoon at a time and shape into balls (I used a 1½-inch cookie scoop and filled heaping). Place on Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheets, spacing cookies 2-inches apart.

  6. Bake in preheated oven 10 – 12 minutes (cookies should look slightly under-baked, they will continue to cook slightly once removed from oven).

  7. Cool on baking sheet 2 minutes (if desired, you can lightly press more white chocolate chips into tops immediately after removing from oven) then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
