Cherry Surprise Crinkles

Remember me talking about these cookies and how they were rather suggestive when baked? They still taste delicious regardless of looks....
These are from (you guessed it) the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Cookie magazine.

Cherry Surprise Crinkles
1/2 c butter, softenened
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 tsp almond extract
2 c flour
1/2 c chopped marashino cherries
36 Hershey's kisses

In your stand mixer, beat the butter for 30 seconds. Mix in the sugar, baking powder and soda, and salt until combined.

Mix in the egg and almond extract, then the flour, then the cherries.

Refrigerate the dough until firm. If you don't refrigerate it, it gets really sticky.

Divide the dough into 36 portions and shape each around a Hershey's kiss. Or if you want a G-rated cookie,   push the Hershey's kiss into a ball of the dough, so it is like a peanut butter blossom.

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
