Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whoa.  That’s a long name.  I saw these in June’s Food Network Magazine.  I just can’t resist a lemon recipe, especially lemon cookies.  I may be watching what I eat but I can still have a cookie once in awhile.  Hmmm, maybe two.  These are simple and deeeelicious!
