Soooooooo. Lemon. We all know I love it. It’s been a lemony summer for me. I just love the refreshing taste of lemons and it just screams summer. When I originally saw the picture of this Lemon Cookie Cake, I knew that I HAD to make it. It looks amazing, and I have to admit that Live, Love and Sugar’s pictures came out much better than mine. But this was my first try!
I’m normally not really into white chocolate at all, but I wanted to try them anyway. And I was happy to see that the white chocolate chips weren’t too strong. I ended up adding about 1/4 teaspoon of lemon extract to the cookie dough to give it a little more punch, and I was happy with how it turned out. I let the lemon juice and the lemon zest ride in the buttercream frosting though. And that was just the thing to do.
I added a little more frosting to my cookie cake…meaning I used every last drop of the frosting that I made. At first I only put one row around the cookie cake, but then I decide that wasn’t enough and added some more. Because you can never have too much frosting!
