Lemonhead cookies

I made these cookies a few weeks ago and they were gone in a flash.  Unfortunately I can't remember where I found the recipe.  But I have already bought some more Lemonhead candies for the next batch. 

Lemonhead Cookies
1 Cup of Butter
1 Cup of White Sugar
1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar
the zest from 1 lemon
2 tsp of Lemon Extract
2 Eggs
1/4 tsp of Salt
1 tsp of Baking Soda
3 Cups of Flour
6 oz Bag of Lemonheads-Crushed or chopped into smaller pieces

Cream together butter, white sugar and brown sugar.  Add in lemon zest, lemon extract and eggs.  Mix until smooth. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.  Add crushed lemonhead candies.  Drop by tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet.  I like to use parchment paper on my cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Drizzle with lemon glaze.

Lemon glaze
Start with 2 cups of powdered sugar in a small mixing bowl. Add lemon juice 1 tablespoon at a time and mix until desired consistency. Drizzle on top of cookies.

I've never seen Lemonheads used in a cookie. This is a really good idea!
