Lemon Curd White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Lemon Curd White Chocolate Chip Cookies
With Spring here and Easter right around the corner I have been thinking about brighter recipes, recipes with lemons in particular, and with a fresh batch of homemade lemon curd and I was thinking that it would be perfect in some white chocolate chip cookies! White chocolate chip cookies are my all time favourite cookie and I usually make them with macadamia nuts so I took my favourite recipe and modified it by removing the nuts and adding plenty of lemon! I started by removing some of the butter to replace it with lemon curd and I increased the flour to compensate for the increase in moisture and I added a large heaping tablespoon of fresh lemon zest for an even more intense lemon flavour! These lemon curd white chocolate chip cookies are so quick and easy to make! Seriously! You could whip off a double batch and be thoroughly enjoying them 30 minutes from now!

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup lemon curd
