Baking My Way: Lemon Kiss Cookies

Lemons were on sale when I went grocery shopping last so I got one and found all of the recipes in my cook book that had lemon in them and baked them all. I figured why not, I already have to chop all that lemon peel, why not get it all done at once?

These cookies turned out great and are super decadent. They are almost list having a chocolate from a fancy box. I would recomment these for a tea date or a girls night! You know us, we're all about the chocolate!



  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped almonds
  • 60 milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration
  • 3 (1 ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil


  1. In large bowl, beat butter, 3/4 cup sugar and lemon extract until light and fluffy. Add flour and almonds; beat at low speed until well blended. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour for easier handling.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Shape scant tablespoons dough around each kiss, covering completely. Roll in hands to form ball. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes until set and bottom edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove to rack and cool completely. Sprinkle cookies with confectioners' sugar.
  4. In small pan, melt chocolate squares and stir in oil until smooth. Drizzle over each cookie.
