Original recipe yields 5 dozen



  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.

I've used this recipe in the past and it's DELICIOUS. They are something different but very much worth the effort! They are quick and fun after you've chilled the dough, but that factor alone makes these a little less than kid-friendly. Give it a try!



I made this recipe with three variations: (1) All ingrediants were organic (2) I had no lemon juice only extract (3) I used dark chocolate kisses instead of milk chocolate. Recipe came out great although, I do not recommend the lemon extract. The flavor of the lemon juice is a lot better.



Thanks for a great recipe
