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 !
cups butter or margarine, softened
tablespoon lemon extract
cups Pillsbury BEST® all-purpose flour
cups finely chopped almonds
bag (13 oz) KISSES® milk chocolates, unwrapped
cup semisweet chocolate chips
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.
