Lemon_Pudding_Cookies2I honestly had no intentions of posting this recipe because I didn’t like how the pics turned out. When you’ve been a food blogger for 6 years you become a little crazy over your photos. I try to get better and improve each time, but there are some days it just aint happenin’. Like the day I took the pictures of these awesome Lemon Pudding Cookies. I took over 300 shots and these are the only 3 I was semi-pleased with. Ugh. Food blogger problems..  lol

These Lemon Pudding Cookies were so delicious, soft and amazing so I just had to share the recipe. Please forgive the photos. I promise you they do NOT give these cookies justice. If you’re like me and adore lemon flavored treats than these cookies are for you my friends! 🙂

I love the white chocolate chips in these. They balance out the lemon flavor so well. It was hard to not shove 3 in my mouth because I’m still on the “Hawaii” diet. Kale was a good boy too and only ate one. I was so proud of my little cookie monster because cookies are his total weakness. When we get back from Hawaii I’m going to make a special batch for him so he can enjoy a few or 20 next time. Ha! 😉Lemon_Pudding_Cookies

  1. Lemon and chocolate chips just don’t go for me….even if they are white chocolate…might try them without the chips..

  2. Oh you silly woman! I think these photos are awesome…can’t wait to try the cookies too. SO glad you didn’t wait to share. MMMM!

  3. These are fantastic. I didn’t have any fresh lemons, so I omitted the lemon zest and they still came out perfect. The kids loved them, we loved them, they are great! I will be making these often as an alternative to the standard chocolate chip cookie. Thanks!

  4. I made these today for a friend but had to try one. They are AMAZING! So refreshing and I nice alternative to chocolate.
