Chocolate chip cookies are easy to make, but we may not always have all of the ingredients in our pantry. This chocolate chip cookie recipe is made without brown sugar or granulated sugar and instead uses powdered sugar. Similar to shortbread cookies, they are tender and melt in your mouth, and will bring all of the familiar comforts of chocolate chip cookies we have come to expect.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the softened butter with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the powdered sugar and beat well. Beat in the lemon zest, vanilla, and egg yolk. Add the cream, and mix well.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating until incorporated, making sure not to overmix. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop the chocolate chip cookie dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets, leaving an inch between each cookie. Bake 17 to 19 minutes until cookies are just starting to turn brown. Do not overbake. Let the chocolate chip cookies cool on wire racks for 5 minutes.
