I’d like to invite you over for a spot of afternoon tea. I’ll trim the crusts from our (PB&J) sandwiches, wear my best (baseball) hat, and have a little bourbon on hand in case you need a splash. Don’t worry—the Lemon Pudding Cookies will keep it classy.

In the words of my friend Sarah, Lemon Pudding Cookies are exactly what you would serve if you had Jane Austen over for tea. Though lemony bright and proper, the white chocolate chips add a creamy decadence that even the most reserved of ladies could not resist.

Lemon Pudding Cookies are also suuuuuper soft. Ladies at tea can munch without fear of smudging their perfectly applied lipstick, because these pudding cookies melt in your mouth. No dry cookie crumbs flaking off and clinging obnoxiously to glossed lips for us. Instant pudding mix stirred into the batter makes these cookies unbelievably tender and keeps them soft for days.
