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!
Does lemon meringue white chocolate chip cookies sound better?

Has anyone ever tried substituting, something else in place of the white chocolate chips? Would it work with dried cherries or cranberries? I’m not a big fan of white chocolate but otherwise the recipe sounds amazing.
Dried cherries or cranberries would be amazing!

I made this this week and they were good. I doubled the fresh lemon zest and purchased high quality lemon curd. Next time I would make Kevin's homemade lemon curd which would be much less expensive.
Just made them and they were a great combo but my came out way too sweet. I agree with lots of lemon zest and make sure your lemon curd isn’t primarily sugar or you will have one sweet cookie!
These would be great made a sandwich cookies with a lemon curd filling!
Meant to say ‘as’ not ‘a’. Ta duh! Keyboard isn’t typing well today.
