Print Recipe


  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 heaping cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • Cooking Spray/Parchment Paper


  • 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.


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