Sweet little cookies in mini cupcake cups have a surprise cherry center! From Melody McGowan, Bake-Off® Monthly Challenge.

Total Time: 1 Hr 10 Min
Makes: 24 cookies

24 whole maraschino cherries, well drained

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
Red sugar

Heat oven to 350°F. Line 24 mini muffins cups with paper or foil candy cups (about 1 1/4 inch). Pat maraschino cherries dry with paper towel. Flatten each cookie slightly. Place 1 cherry in middle of each flattened cookie. Shape dough around cherry to completely cover; shape dough-wrapped cherry into ball. Place dough balls into candy cups.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes; remove candy cups from pans. 
Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
In small bowl, mix powdered sugar, melted butter, almond extract and enough milk for spreading consistency. Spread over cookies; sprinkle with red sugar.
