White Chocolate Lemon Butter Cookies.

I’m choosing lemon over chocolate today. Things are nuts.

This is the second recipe I’m sharing for the month of cookies over at Better Homes and Gardens, and I can say that my lemon obsession is back with a vengeance. For this cookie, I used this tangerine butter cookie recipe and simply swapped the tangerine with lemon and threw in about 1/2 cup of white chocolate chunks. I’m so hooked.

These cookies have a new-to-me cookie ingredient inside of them and that’s white cornmeal. I can’t even believe how chewy it makes these guys and I could not stay away. They have been added to my ever-growing list, that’s for sure. Don’t even know what I’m going to do with myself.

I know things were a little confusing last week with the chocolate pistachio cookies since the recipes are shared differently than I do here on my site. All month, I’m taking a classic BHG cookie recipe and putting my own spin on it. The original recipe will always be linked here and in the BHG post, and the (very simple) changes I make are shared in their post as well, paragraph style. For these beauties, it’s just an easy switch of lemon and the addition of white chocolate. Nothing crazy, just crazy delicious.

You can find these little gems over here, and now I’m gonna go eat about four more for breakfast.
