Lemon Nut White Chip Cookies

I baked these for Christmas using the Nestle's white chocolate swirl morsels. The red and green added a festive touch to these yummy treats. Subtle lemon taste added just the right contrast to the white chips.

I baked these cookies for a church retreat and also gave them as gifts this past Christmas. Easy to make and absolutely delicious! You can't eat just one!

Lemon Nut White Chip Cookies

I made these cookies for my brother during Christmas. They were pretty good, but I was a little disappointed with them. I thought that they should have tasted a little more "lemony". Next time I'm going to add more lemon juice.

I made these cookies for my band practice last week and my band members said that these were the best cookies that I had made yet. The lemon and the white chocolate were a great combination
