  • Cookie Sheet
  • 2 Mixing Bowls
  • Parchment Paper
  • Hand mixer or stand mixer


  • ½ cup Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Whole Milk
  • 1 large Egg
  • cup Sour Cream
  • 1 3.4-ounce box Instant Lemon Pudding Mix
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 12-ounce bag White Chocolate Chips
  • Zest of 1 Lemon (2-3 teaspoons)


  • Heat oven to 375° F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a Mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. I like to use a hand mixer for this.
  • Mix in the milk and the egg.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, pudding mix, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the flour and the sour cream mixture to the butter mixture. Mix until smooth.
  • Add the white chocolate chips and lemon zest. Mix to combine.
  • Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a parchment lined (or silicone mat lined) cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 375° F for 8-10 minutes.
  • Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.


  • Add 1 drop of yellow food coloring if you would like the lemon cookies to
    be a brighter yellow color.
  • The White chocolate chips are optional.
