 1 cup butter or margarine
 1 1⁄2 cups confectioner’s sugar
 1 egg
 1 1⁄4 tsp. almond extract
 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
 maraschino cherries, halved
 chocolate candy kisses
 cinnamon candies
 decorative colored sugars

Beat together butter and confectioner’s sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy and well-blended. Add egg, extract and flour and mix thoroughly. Use a teaspoon to shape into little balls, dab top of each into the colored sugar of your choice, and place sugared-side up on ungreased cookie sheet. With your knuckle, make a depression in the center of each. Fill centers with cherry halves, chocolate kisses or cinnamon candies. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes, until set but not brown. Cool on rack.
