White Chocolate Lemon Cookies

If anyone were to ever ask me what my favorite cookie was...I would say these White Chocolate Lemon Cookies.  They are just so refreshing and you will eat the whole batch...I promise!  Since there are lemons (fruit), pecans (protein) and milk (dairy) they are healthy for you so it IS ok if you eat the whole batch.  Just say'in!  

I know I have posted these cookies before, about one year ago...but I am having trouble with my card reader...it won't read my camera card....aarrrrgh!  So...while I am trying to fix it, I had to post something with lemon for you:)  In case you are wondering I am going to post Lemon Pancakes with Raspberry Butter today:)  So be on the look out!!  I will go to Best Buy and get a new card reader in the mean time!!     


White Chocolate Chip Lemon Cookies

1/2 c. softened butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 TBS milk
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. vanilla 
1 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. white chocolate chips
1 1/2 tsp. grated lemon zest
1/4 c. chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Add egg, milk, lemon juice and vanilla, mix well.  Combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Add to butter mixture; mix well.  Stir in white chocolate chips, lemon zest and pecans.  Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 12-15 minutes or until edges are a light golden brown.  Cool 3 minutes on sheet; remove and cool completely on cooling rack.
