These white chocolate and lemon cookies are the perfect combination of sweet and tart. After creating my Double Chocolate & Raspberry Cookies I decided to experiment with a few different flavour combinations and this delicious white chocolate and lemon version was born!
The chocolate and lemon work so well together meaning that these are packed full of light, summery flavours. The hint of lemon in these is quite subtle so you could always increase the amount of zest used if desired. I used a grater that results in quite large chunks of zest and ensured they were evenly distributed throughout the dough so that each bite has that lovely lemony flavour.
For this recipe you need to use margarine that comes in a hard block otherwise it won’t work and you’ll end up with an oily mess instead of deliciously soft centred cookies. How many it makes depends on the size of the scoop you use but I normally get 6 – 8 cookies from this amount of dough.
Please remember that the dough will spread during the baking process so ensure you spread the dough balls out, you may even need to use two separate baking trays. The cookies should keep well for up to four days in an airtight container.
