    These Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies are a deliciously scrumptious cross between a chocolate chip cookie and a lemon sugar cookie. A perfectly fluffy and mouthwatering combination!

    A few weeks ago my friend and neighbor, Jennifer, brought me cookies from a Mennonite baker in Dutch county, PA. She asked that I help her figure out the recipe. Replicating baking is very difficult.

    Other than the obvious (chocolate chips and sugar) the remaining ingredients can be hard to identify. The original cookies were very light in color, light cream, fluffy, cake-like, moist and not overwhelmingly sweet.

    My first thought process was to think Amish or Mennonite… meaning the ingredients were probably wholesome and easy to obtain, probably from a farm and nothing crazy from the grocery store.

    Whole milk, fresh milled flour, freshly laid eggs. I knew I could taste another ingredient and I believed it to be either cream or sour cream.

    The items I knew were not included were brown sugar or butter, due to the light color of the cookie. I also used rustic chopped chocolate versus perfectly proportioned chips.

    But then, we decided that regular old chocolate chip cookies were boring, so we made Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies!

    It was like chocolate chip cookies and lemon sugar cookies had a baby! Even friends who didn’t care for a lemon cookie flavor loved these. They are pure magic!

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Lightly coat cookie sheet with cooking spray, use a silicone mat or line with parchment paper.
    • In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together shortening and sugar. Add egg whites one at a time and then vanilla.
    • Sift together flour, salt and baking soda.
    • Alternate mixing flour mixture and sour cream into wet ingredients.
    • Fold in white chocolate chips.
    • Refrigerate for 30 minutes.*
    • Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon of dough onto prepared cookie sheet.
    • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cookies will look slightly underdone; they will be a light cream color. Do not wait for them to brown.
    • Using a spatula, gently lift cookies within the first few minutes after removing from the oven. Allow to cool on a cooling rack.

    Notes

    If you refrigerate past 30 minutes, when you do remove cookie dough, allow it to warm for 15- 20 minutes before baking.
