How to make White Chocolate Strawberry Lemon Cookies
To make these cookies, mix all-purpose flour, baking powder, cornstarch and salt together in a bowl. Mix sugar and lemon zest in a large bowl until fragrant. Combine egg and flavorless vegetable oil with the mixture. Incorporate vanilla extract and lemon juice, then mix until everything is incorporated.
Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, resulting in a smooth and creamy dough. Fold white chocolate chips and chopped fresh strawberries into the dough.
The best part? Unlike many cookie recipes, this dough does not require chilling, so you can bake the cookies as soon as the batter is ready!
Scoop the dough into small balls and place on a lined baking sheet. Sprinkle granulated sugar on top of each. Bake the cookies in a preheated oven until slightly golden on the edges and puffed up. The resulting cookies are soft and chewy, with a slightly crispy exterior and a burst of flavor in every bite.
