White Chocolate Lemon Sugar Cookies
These Lemon Sugar Cookies are perfectly chewy and filled with white chocolate chips. They are the perfect treat for spring or anytime of the year!
Hi there y’all, and happy Friday! If you’re celebrating Good Friday today and Easter this weekend, I’ve got just the dessert for you to make for your special dinner or brunch!
I’m excited for Easter this weekend, and am hopeful that both of my kids (and my husband and I!) are well enough to participate in all of the fun.
We were supposed to head to an Easter Egg Hunt put on by my workout group yesterday morning, but my poor little guy woke up with a fever and the stomach bug, so we weren’t able to go.
It broke my heart seeing how devastated he was to miss it, all while feeling sicker than a dog at the same time. 🙁
Doesn’t it just hurt your heart when your kids feel disappointment like that?
The night before he was so excited helping me fill plastic eggs with candy and treats for the hunt, and then he had the hardest time falling asleep because he was looking forward to it so much!
When he stumbled into our bedroom around 4 a.m. complaining his tummy hurt, I knew that wasn’t a good sign.
Here’s hoping he’s all healed up tomorrow so we can try another egg hunt and visit the Easter bunny, too. In the meantime, maybe I’ll just stuff a few more of these cookies in my face and make another cup of coffee while I wash my third load of Paw Patrol sheets.
Oh, the joys of being a mama.
On a serious cookie note, if you are a lemon lover, then you are going to absolutely LOVE these cookies.
They are perfectly chewy and they have just the right amount of delicious lemony flavor. I added white chocolate chips, but if you prefer your cookies plain you can totally leave them out.
I also added a few drops of yellow food coloring to give them that pretty yellow color, but that’s totally optional, too.
Happy Easter, y’all!

Would this work without the corn syrup ? Is there a substitute for it?
Hi there, I’ve never tried these without the corn syrup. Here’s some info on replacements though: http://www.epicurious.com/expert-advice/how-to-substitute-corn-syrup-article
I would prefer to use real lemon. How much lemon juice should I use?
Hi Yvonne, I haven’t tried these with real lemon juice but I think you could substitute the extract with the juice from one lemon. They will have a milder lemon flavor though. I would probably also add some lemon zest to the batter as well to help boost the lemon flavor. Let me know if you give it a try.
I tried it your way. Pure lemon extract rocks 1000%
I can see why this cake was one of your favorites, because it looks amazing!
So sorry to hear about your little guy getting sick before Easter! That’s no fun! Hope he’s feeling better soon! Ps. Love these cookies! White Chocolate and Lemon! YES!
