Lemon cookies on plate

I love everything citrus, and REALLY love the combo of lemon + white chocolate. It’s a great balance of tart and creamy, and makes for a super satisfying treat.

These cookies have a fluffy, cakey texture (think scone but less dry), are packed with lemon flavor, and have a drizzle of white chocolate to balance the flavor. They come together quickly, and are lighter than a traditional cookie since some butter is swapped out for fat-free Greek yogurt, which has less calories and fat.
