What ingredients do I need to make Lemon White Chip Cookies?

Equipment And Directions For Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies
- large bowl
- large spoon – metal
- wire whisk
- parchment paper
- baking sheet
- 1/4 measuring cup
- medium pot
- rubber spatula
- wire rack
Step 1: Preheating The Oven And Combine The Dry Ingredients With A Whisk
Preheat oven at 350
In a bowl whisk the dry ingredients together, Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix, lemon instant pudding, and 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour. This adds air to the lemon cookie recipe and makes for lighter cookies.
Step 2: Making Brown Butter Adds Great Flavor To This Easy Cookie Recipe
In a medium pot set on medium-low heat begin to melt the butter. Next, let the butter begin to bubble, and slowly foam will form on top of the melted butter.
Once the foam becomes opaque and a golden brown color immediately remove it from the heat and let the butter cool.

Step 3: Add The Eggs And Cooled Brown Butter
Now using the rubber spatula add the melted butter the room temperature eggs and fresh lemon juice to the flour mixture. Also, make sure to scoop out the brown bits on the bottom of the pot. This is filled with tons of flavor from browning the butter.
After slightly combining the butter and eggs add the white chocolate chips until combined.
Tip: Put the cookie mixture in the refrigerator for five minutes. This makes the cookies spread less and forms better lemon cookies.
Step Use A Cookie Scoop To Form Even Shaped Cookies
I have been baking for 25 years and I swear by this method when adding drop cookie dough to my baking sheets. In fact, this is my favorite cookie scoop of all time and I have it in every size. I use the medium size cookie scoop for these lemon cookies to give me evenly shaped cookie rounds.
Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake and set the timer for 12-13 minutes. After the timer goes off let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for two minutes.
Next, remove the sheet pans and place them on a wire rack to cool completely. Store these in an airtight container for up to a week away from light. If they last that long, ha, ha. These also freeze well in a plastic storage bag or in an air-tight container for up to 3 months.
