Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1/2 c
softened butter
1 c
white sugar
1 large
egg
1 tsp
almond extract
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/3 c
cocoa powder
1/4 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
30
maracino cherries well drained
1/4 c
white sugar to roll cookie dough in

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream butter & sugar, add egg & almond extract.
2
Sift dry ingredients together, then add to butter mixture. Mix by hand.
3
Take about 1 tablespoon of dough, flatten it in your hand, place a cherry in the center, wrap dough around it, roll in sugar, then place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake 8- 10 min in 350 oven.
4
When cookies are completely cool, I like to drizzle a glaze of frosting over them. I use powdered sugar & juice from the maraschino cherries,& almond extract, but use whatever you like- be creative, or just leave plain. When the cookies come out of the oven you can immediately stick a cherry stem on the top to decorate, which is cute!
