White Chocolate Lemon Cookies

Made, Written & Photographed by the Creators of the Point

I was walking down the baking aisle at my grocery store and ran into a great sale on chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and all the other chips made of chocolate. Tyler loves white chocolate chips so I began to brainstorm what to put with them. My dad was also coming over the next day for our house warming party and he loves lemon. So, I put my two favorite guys together to make these White Chocolate Lemon cookies. They were a hit (not just with Tyler and my dad).
