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

Steps

  • 1 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.
