The Tastiest White Choc and Lemon Cookie Recipe Ever

I’m not going to lie, I’ve always had a hard time understanding why people would make cookies when you can easily just buy them already made. Maybe this stems from my disdain for washing up and cleaning up the kitchen after I’ve spent all that time baking, or the fact that Subway cookies and Oreos exist. 

But… I promise you these cookies are worth it. Not just because they’re super easy to make and require minimal washing up, but because Arnott’s don’t have these on the market… yet (I’m expecting a call any minute now). 

This white choc and lemon cookie recipe contains the perfect balance of buttery, crunchy, chewy, sweet, tart and golden deliciousness there is. There’s something refreshing about the lemon in these cookies. It helps cut through the richness of the white chocolate and the buttery flavour in the cookies, helping to balance them out.

I should also mention that these are seriously addictive, and I promise not to judge if you can’t stop at just one or two (I mean batches, not single cookies!). If you’re looking for some comfort there is nothing better than the way these cookies make the house smell as they bake. Well actually, there is – it’s the way they taste!
