  • 1/2 cup Butter Softened
  • 1/2 cup White Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup white sugar for decoration
  • 40 pieces Dove Milk Chocolates unwrapped
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar For topping drizzle
  • 1 tablespoon raspberry liquor (or milk to substitute) For topping drizzle
  • 4 teaspoons raspberry jam For topping drizzle
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract For topping drizzle


  • In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, 1/2 cup white sugar and brown sugar until smooth.  Blend in the egg and 1 teaspoon almond extract.  Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture.  Cover dough and refrigerate for at least one hour, or until easy to handle.
