Soft Lemon White Chocolate Cookies

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time35 mins


  • 150 g white chocolate, cut into small pieces
  • 125 g butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 250 g all purpose flour
  • 150 g sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • zest of 1 organic lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a medium bowl combine flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Place the butter in a small bowl over a pan of simmering water. Whisk until almost melted. Remove from heat and whisk until melted completely.
  • Transfer the butter to a large bowl. Add sugar and whisk shortly with a hand whisk. Add egg, vanilla, lemon zest and lemon extract and whisk until combined. Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing gently with a wooden spoon until just absorbed. Add the white chocolate pieces and mix shortly to distribute them around the dough.
  • Leave the dough in the bowl and cover with cling film. Refrigerate for 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F). Place the oven shelf on the top position in the oven.
  • Line 2 large baking tins with parchment paper.
  • With your hands make balls out of the dough and arrange them on the prepared tin. Leave a reasonable distance between the cookies, depending on their size.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies start to get brown on the edges.
  • Let them cool on the tin for 5-10 minutes (they will be too soft and fragile when hot).
  • Transfer with a spatula to a wire rack to cool completely.
