We are a family of lemon dessert lovers! Lemon bars? Yes. please. Lemon Macaroons? Pass the plate. But I never make lemon cookies. Why?!? All that has changed now, and these are a new favorite! You are going to love them!
I have seen lots of lemon cookie recipes out there, but they always have lemon cake mix or lemon pudding mix in them. Now, I’m not necessarily saying that’s a bad thing, but I wanted a lemon cookie made from scratch.
Boy, were these amazing! Next time I’ll add lemon zest too to give even more lemon punch. These are such a fun cookie for spring and summer. Great to bring to picnics and potlucks! Once you try these, they will be on your permanent cookie rotation. Enjoy!
What if I don’t have a silicone baking mat or parchment paper or wax paper, will my cookies still be soft?
Making these for our Alex’s lemonade Stand fundraiser this weekend. Thanks for the great recipe.

True story, my college roomates Mom used to ship us delicious homemade lemon cookies monthly. We were SO spoiled! This look super similar so I will give them a try!

Lemon treats and summer time go hand and hand together–the more lemony the better!

My family love lemon treats as well. I have yet to make cookies with lemon so I should tried yours. Thanks for the idea!

I’m all about chewy cookies. I seriously think that chewy ones are the best.

I love lemon and don’t make lemon dishes enough. Time to change that starting with these cookies!

I’m a total lemonholic! These are going on my must try list soon!
Love lemon anything and they just looks so pretty too! Scratch is just always better in my humble opinion!

First off, I am loving that these are from scratch. Secondly, I am drooling at these pictures! I am pinning to make these very soon!

Lemony desserts are my favorite when the weather turns warm. These cookies are something I’ll need to try. They look great, and I love the pale color with the white chocolate chips.
Kacey @ The Cookie Writer says
It is always a toss up between lemon and chocolate for me! But pass over these lemon cookies because you have a winner!

Lemon is one of our favorite dessert flavors around here and these cookies sound perfect!
Erin @ The Speckled Palate says
I love that you made these lemon cookies from scratch! While I don’t necessarily have a problem with boxed mixes, there’s something so satisfying about a cookie that you made from start to finish… and these ones? Gorgeous. Seriously. I can envision them being devoured during the summer months here because they’re light and fresh and the kind of dessert you want to eat during the hot months. I cannot wait to make these!
Erin @ Texanerin Baking says
I love that they’re from scratch! I’m not a fan of recipes that call for box mixes. 😉 And lemon + white chocolate is one of the best combinations EVER. 😀
