Recipe: Cherry Kiss Cookies

An awesome cookie any time of the year, but particularly for your Christmas parties due to it's festive colors...it's one of my favorites.

Cherry Kiss Cookies
1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 teaspoons Maraschino Cherry Juice
1/2 teaspoon Almond Extract
Few drops of Red Food Coloring
2-1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Drained Maraschino Cherries, chopped
48 Hershey Kisses, unwrapped

My Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together first five (5) ingredients until you get a smooth consistency.
Add in Flour, Salt and Cherries...mix well.
Let dough rest in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Form balls and place on your parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Smush cookie balls with a glass dipped in sugar.
Bake 8-10 minutes until bottoms are light brown.
Remove from oven and immediately press a Hershey Kiss into each cookie.
Let cool...if you can.
