Cherry Blossoms
Perfectly Sweet Cookie with a Delightful Suprise
1 cup softened Butter
2/3 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp. Almond Extract
1 3/4 cups Flour
3 drops of red food coloring
24 Cherry Hershey's Kisses
1 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar


Cream together; butter, sugar, vanilla and almond.

Add flour and food coloring, mix until pink and creamy.

Chill dough for at least 45 minutes.

Press 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough around each Kiss.

Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 9 1/2 minutes at 375 degrees F.

Carefully remove hot cookies from pan and roll in powdered sugar. Let cool on a rack or parchment paper. Store in an airtight container.

Cherry Kisses are sometimes seasonal items, the cookies are also good with regular Kisses.

Try variations:
Irish Kisses: use mint extract instead of the almond extract, green instead of red food coloring and plain chocolate kisses.

Double Chocolate Hug: leave out the almond extract and red food coloring, add 1/4 cup cocoa to the dough and use White Chocolate Hugs for the centers.

Preparation Time: Serves: 2 dozen cookies
