I made these Sunday afternoon and they are awesome!! Perfect Christmas cookie.

CHOCOLATE CHERRY THUMBPRINT COOKIES

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup of powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. maraschino cherry juice

1/2 tsp. almond extract

6 drops of red food coloring

2 1/4 cups of all purpose flour

1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries

approx. 50 Hershey kisses

Preheat Oven to 350

In a large bowl beat your butter, powdered sugar, and salt…till well blended…add in cherry juice, almond extract and food coloring…Gradually Beat in flour…stir in cherries.

Shape into 1 inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 min. or until bottoms are light brown. Immediately press a chocolate kiss into center of each cookie…it will crack around the edges…cool on pan for 2 min. then move to a cooling rack.
