Here is a yummy and easy recipe that I usually only make around Valentine's Day (it would be dangerous for me if I made them more often).
Cream together :
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 Tbs. maraschino cherry juice
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries
Sample some of the yummy dough :)
Roll into 1" balls
Bake 8-10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Press a kiss into each cookie after removing from the oven. I buy the kisses on clearance after Christmas and keep them in the freezer, hidden from the kids and myself.
