Chocolate-covered cherry lovers, get ready for the cookie version of your favorite candy! This recipe comes from my Taste of Home temp-tations® Holiday Cookbook.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons maraschino cherry juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 6 drops red food coloring, optional
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries
  • 54 milk chocolate kisses, unwrapped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat butter, confectioners’ sugar and salt until blended. Beat in cherry juice, extract and, if desired, food coloring. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in cherries. 
  2. Shape dough into 1-in. balls. Place 1 in. apart on greased temp-tations® 13x9 inch Lid-Its®. 
  3. Bake 8-10 minutes or until bottoms are light brown. Immediately press a chocolate kiss into center of each cookie (cookie will crack around edges). Cool on pans 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
