Ingredients

Cookie

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon extract

Drizzle

1/2 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

Combine 1 cup flour and all remaining cookie ingredients in large bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in remaining 1 cup flour.

Divide dough into 2 equal portions; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (at least 2 hours).

Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely. Place on waxed paper. Repeat with remaining dough.

Melt chocolate chips and shortening in small saucepan, over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted. Drizzle over cookies.
