Our yummy chocolate chip lemon curd sandwich cookies will bring out the sunshine in your kitchen! White chocolate chips and refreshing citrus curd make perfect partners, and for the dough, we skipped the eggs entirely and only used homemade lemon curd instead. If you’re short on time, simply use store bought curd, we promise we won’t tell. You can savour the cookies on their own or pep them up with an extra layer of lemon curd sandwiched between two cookies. We’ve also created cute printable cookie wrappers that you can download at the end of this post – that is of course if you have any cookies left to give away!

Chocolate Chip Lemon Curd Sandwich Cookies

Prep Time: 40 min

Oven Temperature: 180°C / 350°F / Gas mark 4

Baking Time: 12 – 14 mins

Cooling Time: 2 hours

Yields: 8 sandwich cookies

Materials

For the cookies

  • 115 g (1 stick / ½ cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 200 g (1 cup) light brown or muscovado sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp lemon curd
  • 220 g (1 3/4 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 180 g (1 cup / 6 oz) white chocolate chips plus some extra for decorating

 

For the filling

  • lemon curd

Instructions

1) Prep work

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F / gas mark 4). Line two baking trays (sheets) with greaseproof (wax) paper, baking (parchment) paper or silicone baking mats.

 

2) Mix the cookie dough

In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter, sugar, vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract, and salt until light and fluffy. Add the lemon curd and beat until smooth. Sift the flour and baking powder on top of the butter sugar mixture. Stir until well blended and fold in the white chocolate chips.

 

3) Bake the cookies

Drop 2 tablespoon – sized balls of cookie dough onto prepared baking trays (sheets). Flatten the tops slightly with your palm, and bake for 12 – 14minutes, until the edges of the cookies turn golden brown. Take the cookies out of the oven.

 

4) Add extra chocolate chips and let cookies cool

Once removed from the oven and while the cookies are still soft, carefully press white chocolate chips in the freshly baked cookies. Set aside for 10 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool for 2 hours.

Info: White chocolate sometimes bake brown, so we add extra chocolate chips after baking. This step is optional, and you can skip it if preferred.

 

5) Assemble the cookies

After the cookies have come to room temperature, spread 1 – 2 tbsp lemon curd on a cookie and sandwich with another cookie on top.

Difficulty: easy

Materials: lemon curd, chocolate chips
