How To Make lemon dream cookies

  • 1
    In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, ground almonds, butter and cream cheese until soft dough forms. Shape dough into 36 (1-1/4 inch) balls. Press each ball in bottom and up sides of greased mini muffin cup.
  • 2
    Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool completely in pan, about 30 minutes. Remove cookie cups from pan. Fill each with about 1-1/2 tsp. lemon curd.
  • 3
    In small bowl, mix frosting and whipped topping well. Spoon 1 rounded tsp. frosting mixture on top of each filled cookie cup. Top with lemon peel and almonds.
  • 4
    Store covered in refrigerator. If you only have one 12 cup mini muffin pan, shape all of the dough into balls. Fill the pan and cover the remaining balls to keep them from drying out. After baking, cool the pan completely before refilling it with dough.
