Lemon Cookies with White Chocolate
2 boxes lemon cake mix
1 c. butter, melted
1 T fresh lemon juice (I just used the bottled kind)
1 12oz package white chocolate chips
1/2 t. shortening
Melt butter. Pour cake mixes into a large mixing bowl and add melted butter. Mix it, add eggs and mix some more. Add lemon juice to the mix. Stir until well combined. Add 1/2 bag of white chocolate chips (I added the entire bag and omitted the other step that you do with the remaining chips in the original recipe...but read ON, you may not want to do what I did, you may want to follow the original recipe....it sounds scrumptious as well..I was just too lazy to do the extra step) Mix until chips are incorporated evenly. Roll into 1 1/2" balls, place on a cookie sheet, press cookie ball down just slightly with your thumb, this helps so that the cookie is flat vs. round. Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes. DO NOT over bake. Take cookies from the oven when they have cracked on the top. Cool for 2 minutes before removing from pans.
Melt the remaining 1/2 bag of white chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 seconds. Add the shortening to the chips and stir. If they aren't melted enough, put them back into the microwave for another 30 seconds. Don't get it too hot, the white chocolate will get all chalky and uncooperative. Drizzle the white chocolate over the tops of the cooled cookies with a spoon, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
