Little Drops of Spring - Eggless, Lemon, White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wish I could say that I’ve gone on a good-for-you, low cholesterol diet that restricts my egg consumption, but yeah, no.  I was out of eggs and craving a citrusy sweet treat, so I threw together these lemonade-like cookies!
Hope you enjoy!

Little Drops of Spring – Eggless, Lemon, White Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • zest of two small lemons
  • 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Cream the butter and sugar until its nice and fluffy.  Add in 1 cup of the flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda before adding lemon juice.  Add remaining flour and zest before slowly adding in the milk.  Finally mix in the white chocolate chips.  Drop by tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.


****Update**** Since a couple of you asked I highlighted when to add the milk.  You alternate with the dry ingredients and the lemon juice and milk.  :) 


  1. I clicked on your cookies in Keeping it Simple link party, without knowing they were yours! Got a huge smile on my face when I was redirected to your blog! They look YUMMY!!! I already wrote on my cell to buy the ingredients to make it!
    Now you got me thinking cookies... it is almost 1 in the morning and I am here, just finished writing my newest post! I think I am going to hit the fudge-os jar, LOL!!!

  2. When do we add the milk?

  3. ooh this looks delish. I love the idea of a light lemoney cookie for spring. I assume the milk is added in once the butter has been mixed? Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. I can't wait to try this recipe! I tend to get the urge to make cookies when I discover I'm out of eggs. It happened last night, in fact. This recipe is perfect for me!

  5. Yum-o! I have a daughter with an egg allergy and baked goods without eggs are so hard to find! I can't wait to try them!
