Ingredients

Make It

Step 1

Combine flour and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, sugar, lemon peel and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until fluffy. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in 1 cup morsels.

Step 2

Divide dough into 4 even pieces. Gently shape each piece into an 8 x 1-inch diameter log. Wrap logs tightly in wax paper. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until firm.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Step 4

Unwrap logs; cut each log with serrated knife into 16 slices, about 1/2-inch thick. If necessary, reshape edges of cookies. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

Step 5

Bake for 13 to 14 minutes or until edges are set. Cool for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Step 6

Line baking sheet with wax paper.

Step 7

Microwave remaining 1 cup morsels and vegetable shortening in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.

Step 8

Dip top half of cookies into melted morsels. Scrape off excess against side of bowl. Place on baking sheets. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until set.

Notes:

•For chocolate chip orange cookies, substitute 2 to 3 tablespoons of orange zest for the lemon zest and NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels for the Premier White Morsels.
•Dough logs may be frozen up to 1 month in advance. Place wrapped logs in plastic freezer storage bags.
