Valentine Cherry Kisses Cookies

    Valentine Cherry Kisses Cookies
  • 1 cup butter; (1/2 pound)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maraschino cherry juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 drops red food coloring
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cups maraschino cherries; drained and chopped
  • 25 Hershey's chocolate kisses; or chocolate hearts

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease 2 cookie sheets.

Cream butter and powdered sugar together in a electric mixer, add cherry juice, almond extract, red food coloring and salt. Beat well. Add flour 1 cup at a time, scraping bowl often. Add cherries and mix only enough to blend. Dough should be stiff.

Roll into 2" balls and press slightly flat on cookie sheets.

Bake 10-12 minutes.

Remove from oven and immediately place an unwrapped Hershey's chocolate kiss, or heart, on the top of each cookie, pressing down with a slight twisting motion.

Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
