Lemon Drop Cookies

 A sweet, tangy and creamy cookies with tons of tangy lemon juice, lemon zest and creamy white chocolate chips.

Summer is coming to a close, around where I live the kids start within the next two weeks. But it is still blazing outside.
 It is refreshing just like a cup of ice cold lemonade from a small cookie with lemon juice, lemon zest and white chocolate.
You also get a little kick from the ginger, it is not the gingerbread during the holidays. Just a little kiss.

To get the really lemony flavor you zest the lemon into the sugar.  I've done it without it and the lemon flavor wasn't really there.
