Choco-Cherry Dot Cookies

Choco-Cherry Dot Cookies

Ingredients:

1 c. confectioners' sugar
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 tsp. cherry extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract
3 drops of red food coloring
2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. maraschino cherries, drained and chopped (can use candied cherries
instead)
48 cherry cordial flavored chocolate kisses, unwrapped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl, combine confectioners'
sugar, butter, cherry and almond extracts and food coloring; blend well.
Stir in flour and salt until well combined. Fold in chopped cherries. Form
dough into 1-inch balls, and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie
sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly brown around
edges. Remove from oven and immediately press a cherry-flavored chocolate
kiss in top of each cookie. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool. Makes 4
dozen cookies.

*For extra chocolate flavor you can add 1/2 c. of mini chocolate chips (or
to taste) to your cookie dough mixture.
