Show Mom your sweetest and most authentic affections by baking her Lemon Cookies with White Chocolate and Mint. These homemade cookies crunch and dissolve into creamy puddles. The lemon, chocolate and mint refresh and crunch to addictive proportions . It's best you make a double batch (the recipe doubles easily), just to be certain you have enough to give Mom on Mother's Day.

Today, I am joined by a group of talented bloggers from the Sunday Supper Movement to celebrate Mom's Favourite Recipes with a collection of delicious Mother's Day recipes. I'm very proud to contribute this recipe to the event-- Lemon Cookies with White Chocolate and Mint. I expect Mom will adore these cookies, bite-after-bite.

These beautiful cookies were slightly adapted from Shirley Corriher's exceptional book BakeWise.
