White Chocolate Lemon Cookies

Dorene Nagy


This recipe has been in my recipe box forever and I noticed one year it was on the back of a chocolate chip bag. Small world. They called it something else but close enough I had to laugh. Good recipes go around the world and come back at ya with new names. I think its a great change from the regular chocolate chip cookie.
