Valentine Cream Cheese Delights

Ingredients:

1  cup butter

1  c. granulated sugar

Red food coloring

Powdered sugar

Directions:

Cream butter, granulated sugar, cream cheese, and almond extract until fluffy. Add red food coloring and beat in. Add baking powder and flour until well mixed. Chill 1-2 hours.

Coat hands with a little flour and shape into walnut-sized balls around a piece of candy (if using Kisses, break off the top peak -). Be sure candy is totally covered with the dough. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. (Watch so they don’t brown.) Cool slightly to handle. Roll in powdered sugar. When thoroughly cool, roll in powdered sugar again. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.

 Let the cookies cool completely. The inside will look like this……
