  • 2 cups HERSHEY'S Premier White Chips
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans


  • 1. Heat oven to 350°F. Set aside 2 tablespoons white chips for the drizzle.

Gradually blend flour mixture into lemon mixture. Stir in pecans. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 3. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until very slightly golden around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Lightly drizzle LEMON DRIZZLE over cookies. Makes about 42 cookies.
  • LEMON DRIZZLE: Place reserved 2 tablespoons white chips and 1/2 teaspoon shortening (do not use butter, margarine, spread or oil) in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 30 seconds; stir. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, just until chips are melted when stirred. Stir in a few drops yellow food color and a few drops lemon extract, if desired.
