Ingredients

  • 1

    Cup butter, softened

  • 1

    Cup powdered sugar

  • ½

    tsp. salt

  • 2

    tsp. maraschino cherry juice

  • ½

    tsp. almond extract or vanilla extract

  • 6-7

    drops of red food coloring

  • 2-¼

    cups all purpose flour

  • ½

    cup chopped maraschino cherries

  • 1

    bag of dark chocolate Hershey kisses

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl beat the butter, powdered sugar & salt until mixed well. Add cherry juice, almond extract & food coloring. Mix well. Gradually add flour and then add chopped cherries. Shape into 1 inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on parchment paper or greased cookie sheet. Bake 9-10 minutes or until the bottoms are light brown. Remove from oven and immediately press a Hershey kiss in the center of each cookie. They will crack slightly around the edges. Cool for a minimum of 30 minutes as the chocolate will be slightly melted.
