I came across this recipe in a pillsbury cookbook and cannot wait to try them out soon. I love lemon and chocolate so i am sure these will be tasty !

1 1/2
cups butter or margarine, softened
cup sugar
tablespoon lemon extract
2 3/4
cups Pillsbury BEST® all-purpose flour
1 1/2
cups finely chopped almonds
bag (13 oz) KISSES® milk chocolates, unwrapped
Powdered sugar
cup semisweet chocolate chips
tablespoon shortening

In large bowl with electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and lemon extract on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add flour and almonds; beat on low speed until well blended. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour for easier handling. 2 Heat oven to 375°F. Shape 1 scant tablespoon dough around each milk chocolate candy, covering completely; roll in hands to form ball. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. 3 Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until set and bottom edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. 4 Lightly sprinkle cooled cookies with powdered sugar. In 1-quart saucepan, melt chocolate chips and shortening over low heat, stirring until smooth; drizzle over each cookie.
